Went Computer Shopping, Bought A Car

Inlägg av Corjack »

Went out on a mission to buy a Macbook Pro computer today, ended up buying a BMW car. I always wanted a good english made car, so I bought a BMW. Boy did I get screwed! Got home, looked at the paperwork, and discovered this particular BMW was made in Bavaria, Germany. For some reason I had it in my head BMW stood for British Motor Works? I also looked at an Audi that I really liked, but did not want to buy a car made in France.

I learned a hard lesson today. Never go computer shopping when you have been drinking!

As well as I know both BMW and Audi are made in Germany, I don't even think they have outsourced any manufacturing, but I may be wrong about the manufacturing part.

Enjoy your new car.

Well, at least you got something with better performance than a Macbook Pro... 8)
Just hope you didn´t drive the car home the same day... :?

I was just making fun of myself. You guys are always so serious. Just trying to liven things up a bit. Looks like I need to come over and do that in person. :wink: Anyone want me to bring them a Kimber 1911 if I do?

No need to bring gifts (even though it´s a good idea), just get yourselfe over here and we will send you around Sweden to try our different types of shooting and hunting 8) There´s plenty of people on this forum that would be willing to take you hunting and shooting! From benchrest to skeet and rabbits up to moose :mrgreen:

Benchrest shooting have taken me across the world and got me hooked up with hunters and shooters on four continents (so far). I´ve been hunting everything from rabbits in australia to kudu in africa with benchresters and I really enjoy every minute of it!

If you ar serious about coming here for a visit with hunting and shooting let us know!

Swedish people are used to live by directions, we are like merionettes, controlled by different laws. Sweden is THE absolute capital of laws controlled or by different conclusions controlled citizens of the world.

A swede does'nt say "can i do this" they say " is it leagal to do this"

That's why the point did'nt come through....as you wished, and that's why we are so "serious"

It's sad really

I will be working hard to correct this small issue. :lol:

A truly civilized group of people, need to be able to laugh at themselves first, and then educate everone else as to what the joke is. You may live in a very controlled society, but it is hard to control people that find humor in day to day living.

Uh oh! Most of the folks I know drive pick up trucks, love BBQ and guns.

Kind of like the old joke
Two old buddies, Ralph and Joe decided that they would go to college, they went through admissions, and were waiting in a room to see the counseler, and go over the classes they would take. Ralph went in first, the counseler informed him that he would be taking classes in math, english and logic. Ralph told her he knew what math and english consisted of, but had never heard of logic. The counseler told him she would demonstrate.

"Do you have a weedeater?"

"Yes!" said Ralph

She then said,"logic would tell me that if you own a weed eater you probably have a yard, if you have a yard you probably own a house, and if you own a house, you are currently in a heterosexual relationship"

"Wow" said Ralph, you are correct.I own a home and have been married for 17 years, this logic is very cool"

He then left the room, Joe asked him "what classes are you taking?
" Ralph told him, "math, english and logic",
"what the heck is logic?"Joe asked. "
"I will demonstrate" said Ralph, "do you have a weedeater?"
"No", said Joe
Ralph replied " Damn Joe! I have known you all my life, and I never knew you were gay.

I am thinking of going to India, meet friends from Denmark there, then fly back to Denmark, and drive to Sweden. Should make a nice little trip of it.

Really nice beamer! I used to be a BMW-freak myself (still am). But life changed (house, mortages, chilldren.. ) so my priorities had to change aswell. ;)

Your beamer is the 3-series E36-modell. By some minor detalils from the photo, I would guess its 318 or 320? And its manufactured in 97 or 98? Im i close?
One of my beamars was an E36 328i -96 coupe. One of the most pleasent cars i've ever owned. 8)

It is a 1997 318. I love driving it, runs like a raped ape, gets great fuel mileage. I always like to do things in series, so am looking for another. Probably a 325.

Well I have been gettin along nicely with my little BMW sedan for a few years now. Got a new job requiring a good bit of travel, and needed to be able to carry a lot of product samples, so today, I added another BMW to the remuda. It is a 2005 BMW X5, with very low miles, one owner, and it belonged to a preachers wife. Still has that new car smell, and it is over ten years old.
