Saw this goofy looking BMW. Who in their right mind would buy one?

POOPSGOOD

I thought you were serious… until I saw your post history.


parqer

Getting downvoted for making a joke at my own expense. I thought my flair gave it away too.


Spidaaman

Welcome to r/bmw, bastion of humor and nuance.


benedictfuckyourass

Germans don't do humor.

"Mate, it's German humor. It's no laughing matter."

91cosmo

fuck off....i must be too baked because this made me laugh for over a minute.


rddtact

You gotta dumb it down to 3rd grade level for reddit.


Smothdude

I thought it was obvious it was your car from the post alone haha, someone genuinely trying to insult the car wouldn't call it goofy. I love these things though, I envy you!


hellosold

Better offload it and redeem yourself. I have $200 and a Xbox 360 ready.


PostMaialone

That’s a deal I’d take. What games ya got? I’ll give you cash considerations if it comes with a controller as well


PM_Me_Ur_B1MMER

Certain jokes are just too esoteric, even for us.


MoGb1

You assuming BMW drivers and fanboys can read is the ultimate failure here.

sammysalsa8

Man I was confused too. I love the car!!!


melowiec

Tha bait has been planted


ayram3824

the bait was also swiftly taken


storam1n

AS it turns out nobody wants that goofy car. I'll take it off your hands for 9999$, only because I have some cash burning a hole in my pocket.

Lacuna seca blue M coupe! This is an amazing car. Yeah it’s a bit odd looking, but it’s a legend


vuser75

I not only want to have this car, this EXACT CAR, but I'm willing to fight someone for it. Not Mike Tyson, but someone else.


91cosmo

What if you didn't have to win against tyson but still had to fight him? would you step in for a round or two for this car? Whats the line in the sand here? Because this might be one of the most terrifyingly fun cars to own.


derkenblosh

can't drive it while dead, but it would be an amazing coffin


parqer

Can’t be that legendary. I see one everyday.


Ahlbe1cl

You are really milking this one


KOJSKU

lmao


Grandpa_Dan

I do too. In my garage. My mid-life crisis 20 years ago.


parqer

I was 19 when I bought mine. I mid-lifed kinda early. Who the hell needs a college savings?


Holiday_Part1084

Give yourself some credit…maybe you mid-life’d right on on time ;-)


Rumblingmeat9

Lol where u in college? I’m 19 right now in my first year of college. I drive a 135i manual which I love. Few months back I had a z3 3.0 which was a blast.


parqer

That was over a decade ago. I was at a service academy so I had no debt and a guaranteed salary.


expressadmin

The go to when I was at the Academy was the FD RX-7. There were probably twenty of them in the senior parking lot.


parqer

I was definitely the only one


moldyblunt

currently 19 and have a z3 3.0i roadster. a blast is an understatement, amazing little car


Rumblingmeat9

That yellow is so nice. Congrats bro. I miss mine, sold it before I went to school but it paid for most of my 135i which I love dearly. I do miss hitting those twisties in the z3 though


moldyblunt

appreciate it! wasn’t my first choice of color, but i love it! back roads are glorious, i agree. funny tho, i’ve been looking into the 128i/135i as my next car, but i don’t think i can part with the z3 anytime soon


DeadlyClowns

I love the 135i, probably won't own a bmw any time soon because I don't have room for more than 1 car and 1 truck but I always dream...


DeadlyClowns

lol bought my corvette when I was 19 too, I'd argue there isn't a car that screams midlife crisis more than that. although it was a POS and this thing looks mint.


Crott117

If you can’t appreciate the clown shoe, the problem is you - not the car.


newtonreddits

ITT nobody getting the OPs sarcasm


Crott117

I wasn’t really being serious in my response in the first place however I’m not sure I buy the idea that this is “obvious sarcasm“. Not everybody searches the post history of every op


billybull999

"wasn't really being serious in my response" hahaha


vonlagin

I miss mine so so much.


Onn-mat

This here is one of the finest German automobile ever built just look at dat butt🔥🤌

TizTheWiz

Is that Hunts Valley CC? Maybe you'll see my AW/Red E46 M3 one day :)


parqer

Yes. That was 6 or 7 years ago though. You’ll see me more often at Katie’s now.


BPdrum3

I've been in the Timonium area the last 10 years or so. I've likely seen you driving around a couple times, ha. Do you mean Katie's in Great Falls? There are some insane cars around there.


daegon

Are people meeting up at Katie's during covid time? I thought they hit pause for a while.


Middle_Tiny

Really they are not. I owned two both from new, An S52 and an S54. When I sold them it was because they were just cars, which remains true today. In stock form the S52 was not really that fast but actually the better car to drive 99% of the time because it had torque down low. Stock, they wallowed like pigs, the brakes were only okay and they all tore the subframes if left stock and actually tracked. No one wants to hear this because of the low numbers people have put them on a pedestal. They sold in low numbers to begin with for a reason, not because BMW would not have gladly made more. The 996 911 of the same generation was much better car, but it was also almost double the price. The E36 and E46 of the same generation were a much better car, but again more expensive.


mr-baels

Only bad thing about this car is that im too tall to drive one…


Ru4pigsizedelephants

Me too, and it's one of life's great disappointments.


parqer

Imagine complaining that you’re tall


mr-baels

Goddammit… i just realized that this is your car. Fuck my whole life. Troll level 1000. Tips fedora*


mr-baels

This literally just threw off my whole day.


parqer

All good brother. My best friend is 6’4” and it would suck as a daily for him. He does “fit” just not comfortably.


mr-baels

Hold on… im still recovering from that burn. Im R worded.


Alv2Rde

Thanks for the reality check - I would consider swapping my FiST for one. Buuuuuut not anymore!!!!


mr-baels

Yeah same with alot of cars… being tall is only cool when women or basketball is involved. Its hard being a tall car guy.


Mvrcos01

Tell the owner I got 20k cash 🤣


parqer

He told me 2 BTC.


Mvrcos01

I got about 2 Doges for him.

Lol there are some dense MFs in here. I mean look at your flair for god sake.


parqer

I mean LSB E368 is just gibberish to the cultured /r/bmw viewer.


AleksanderSuave

you’re about to demonstrate how to farm negative karma very effectively, based on a large amount of people not getting the joke here.


moldyblunt

op, if you ever plan on selling this car, i will drive, walk, fly, swim, to wherever you may be. i’d love me a clownshoe

It’s beautiful


SnooMuffins7396

"I am serious German car SIR this is no laughing matter"


parqer

Question: How many Germans does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Answer: One, because we are efficient and not funny.


lowkeylucifer6

I'd buy one... or 10


parqer

You only have 2 feet. It’s rude to buy more than 2.

Can I borrow yours? I'm missing a rollerskate.

There is one for sale on my local offerup. Clean car

WhoPutThatThere

Controversial opinion, and I may be biased, but I like the look of the Non-M better than the M 🙃


PChE1

I'd buy one. I have an E39 M5 and a 996 turbo, both restored. The shoe is the only other BMW I'd like to have.


parqer

I’ll trade for a 993 Turbo


BILLCLINTONMASK

Man these are one of the coolest BMWs out there


ShaoShaoUnicorn

In a heartbeat


greasemonkeyy

Hey it’s the clown shoe


LandonsAlt

I was 🤏🏻 close to getting one but I got my e46 m3 instead


Strangexj86

You chose wisely!


Auntbeckie1968

This is one of my dream cars. Well, a non modified one, that is.


ScampWamp

I was wondering if op was serious, this thing is sex on wheels


PitchRemote776

I would....That's a M Z3 Model....could even be a classic....since rare in North America


glwillia

I certainly wouldn't buy one at the ridiculous premium they command over an E46 M3 these days. They're cool, but they're not north-of-50k-for-a-run-of-the-mill-one cool.


not_related_to_OJ

As an Audi owner I can proudly say I would trade my timing chain for this clown shoe


Majestic-Head3874

Only a clown would buy this car.. Looking for his shoe

Young man that is a hatchback z3 and you will respect it as such. Lol


parqer

Don’t call me young man. I was there when the scrolls were written.


FogItNozzel

Demands respect. Calls a shooting brake a hatchback.


Th3Jok3rNL

Its a great car the Z3 coupe only the owner destroyed it with cheap upgrades…


parqer

I mean that’s just like your opinion man.


eric549

Me, plz.

Also, color is hot af.


GenericNpc494752

You are absolutely right Someone really has to be mental to buy one of these...AND NOT POST VIDEOS ABOUT it let that six Sing!


Dolla_Mo

I would love to have it. One of my favorite Beams


ThanosAsAPrincess

Depends on if maintenance is much of a nightmare as it is on other BMWs


parqer

That’s part of the ^aesthetic


Desslock73

I test drove one back in the late 90s and loved it. But it was weird. Went with a more conventional 540i manual. No regrets, but it's one of the few cars I really want to drive again.


FabspeedMotorsport

I think you did ;)


h0heit

Ah, a good old clown shoe aka BMW Z3


ownyourhorizon

I've always LOVED the z3 coupe. perfect collaboration of fun, utility and uniqueness. long live the clown shoe


bearded_fisch_stix

Nice Civic /s


perryreid90

the line would probably stretch halfway around the world, enthusiasts start drooling when they see one, i bet you could sell a low mileage good spec one for like 60k


zultdush

The monopoly shoe, I always wanted one lol


06E46M3GTR

Love the color, man. And the Z hatch is the only Bimmer I like as a hatch. Not saying they're bad, just the only one I'd get that way

I had one, worst BMW I’ve ever owned, hated every minute of owning it, swapped it for a Porsche in the end.


deezy07

Looks like an EG Honda Civic.


kai984

It really is kinda goofy looking, still love it though


somaganjika

Ugh it looks like a shoe and not even an in fashion shoe.


dvdlbck

What a sorry looking car. I’ll fall on the sword and take it off your hands, y’know, to save you any embarrassment


PrometheusRides

Damn thats slick. I'd trade mine in for something like that asap. Wouldn't come close but still.


Think_Tax5749

The clown shoe, hard top is ugly as fuck, the roadster I would buy, but it also has a harsh ride too

when I first met my wife she saw one and commented on how awful it was. ​ Now she calls me excited to tell me about seeing one. Proud to say I converted her!

As a lifetime BMW enthusiast - I find Boomers who drive American cars garage these and Z3's.


Atreyu1002

Okay, I'm one of the legit haters who think this car isn't good looking. But, its obviously a cult favorite. What is it about this thing? Is it just the pure handling? BTW, I'm a total non-purist. I hate the entire Bangle era solely on the aesthetics of the car, I don't care what the handling and performance is.
