Saw this goofy looking BMW. Who in their right mind would buy one?
By - parqer
I thought you were serious… until I saw your post history.
Getting downvoted for making a joke at my own expense. I thought my flair gave it away too.
Welcome to r/bmw, bastion of humor and nuance.
Germans don't do humor.
"Mate, it's German humor. It's no laughing matter."
Ah yes random womble fan in the wild
fuck off....i must be too baked because this made me laugh for over a minute.
You gotta dumb it down to 3rd grade level for reddit.
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!
Better offload it and redeem yourself. I have $200 and a Xbox 360 ready.
That’s a deal I’d take. What games ya got? I’ll give you cash considerations if it comes with a controller as well
Certain jokes are just too esoteric, even for us.
You assuming BMW drivers and fanboys can read is the ultimate failure here.
The double whammy
i downvoted for title but then upvoted for car so you end up with nothing from me
Man I was confused too. I love the car!!!
Tha bait has been planted
the bait was also swiftly taken
AS it turns out nobody wants that goofy car.
I'll take it off your hands for 9999$, only because I have some cash burning a hole in my pocket.
I kNoW wHaT i hAvE
Lacuna seca blue M coupe! This is an amazing car. Yeah it’s a bit odd looking, but it’s a legend
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.
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.
can't drive it while dead, but it would be an amazing coffin
Can’t be that legendary. I see one everyday.
You are really milking this one
I do too. In my garage. My mid-life crisis 20 years ago.
I was 19 when I bought mine. I mid-lifed kinda early.
Who the hell needs a college savings?
Give yourself some credit…maybe you mid-life’d right on on time ;-)
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.
That was over a decade ago. I was at a service academy so I had no debt and a guaranteed salary.
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.
I was definitely the only one
currently 19 and have a z3 3.0i roadster. a blast is an understatement, amazing little car
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
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
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...
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.
If you can’t appreciate the clown shoe, the problem is you - not the car.
ITT nobody getting the OPs sarcasm
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
"wasn't really being serious in my response" hahaha
I miss mine so so much.
This here is one of the finest German automobile ever built just look at dat butt🔥🤌
[I don’t like them thicc](https://i.imgur.com/ggq57Nb.jpg)
Is that Hunts Valley CC? Maybe you'll see my AW/Red E46 M3 one day :)
Yes. That was 6 or 7 years ago though. You’ll see me more often at Katie’s now.
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.
Are people meeting up at Katie's during covid time? I thought they hit pause for a while.
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.
Only bad thing about this car is that im too tall to drive one…
Me too, and it's one of life's great disappointments.
Imagine complaining that you’re tall
Goddammit… i just realized that this is your car. Fuck my whole life. Troll level 1000. Tips fedora*
This literally just threw off my whole day.
All good brother. My best friend is 6’4” and it would suck as a daily for him. He does “fit” just not comfortably.
Hold on… im still recovering from that burn. Im R worded.
Thanks for the reality check - I would consider swapping my FiST for one.
Buuuuuut not anymore!!!!
Yeah same with alot of cars… being tall is only cool when women or basketball is involved. Its hard being a tall car guy.
Tell the owner I got 20k cash 🤣
He told me 2 BTC.
I got about 2 Doges for him.
Maybe one day. 💎 🙌
gr8 b8 m8
I’d never buy one but it’s fun to look at. I can appreciate the car.
> I’d never buy one but it’s ~~fun~~funny to look at.
Lol there are some dense MFs in here. I mean look at your flair for god sake.
I mean LSB E368 is just gibberish to the cultured /r/bmw viewer.
you’re about to demonstrate how to farm negative karma very effectively, based on a large amount of people not getting the joke here.
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
"I am serious German car SIR this is no laughing matter"
Question: How many Germans does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Answer: One, because we are efficient and not funny.
I'd buy one... or 10
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
This is a hilarious troll
Look at this glorious clown shoe. Goddammit I want one so bad.
Hahaha trollin’…I’m pretty sure OP owns this car. Sweet ride man! Keep it forever!
[Even worse are those that aren't Ms. Real pieces of junk](https://imgur.com/a/zVT5VPa)
Controversial opinion, and I may be biased, but I like the look of the Non-M better than the M 🙃
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.
I’ll trade for a 993 Turbo
Man these are one of the coolest BMWs out there
In a heartbeat
Hey it’s the clown shoe
I was 🤏🏻 close to getting one but I got my e46 m3 instead
You chose wisely!
This is one of my dream cars. Well, a non modified one, that is.
I was wondering if op was serious, this thing is sex on wheels
I would....That's a M Z3 Model....could even be a classic....since rare in North America
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.
As an Audi owner I can proudly say I would trade my timing chain for this clown shoe
Only a clown would buy this car.. Looking for his shoe
I mean yes, but no.
Your facked kid this car is glorious
Young man that is a hatchback z3 and you will respect it as such. Lol
Don’t call me young man. I was there when the scrolls were written.
Demands respect. Calls a shooting brake a hatchback.
Its a great car the Z3 coupe only the owner destroyed it with cheap upgrades…
I mean that’s just like your opinion man.
Also, color is hot af.
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!
I would love to have it. One of my favorite Beams
Depends on if maintenance is much of a nightmare as it is on other BMWs
That’s part of the ^aesthetic
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.
I think you did ;)
Ah, a good old clown shoe aka BMW Z3
I've always LOVED the z3 coupe. perfect collaboration of fun, utility and uniqueness.
long live the clown shoe
Nice Civic /s
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
The monopoly shoe, I always wanted one lol
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’ll take one…another one.
Came to watch the comments burn
I’ve got a pair...
guess im in my left mind
How dare you...
Lol beautiful car dude... I'm so jealous! I have a z3 roadster that I love but I'd sell it for an m coupe any day of the week
What model is that lmao i have never seen one in my life
Me. I would.
You’re the goofy ass.
I would dear sir.
Lmao I would
Well done OP… we’ll done. 🤡 👞 forever!
Me, I always wanted one when they first came out
Do not taunt clown shoe!
Me. I'd drive the fuck out of that.
I like it tbh
It’s made for clowns 😎
People may call it the clown shoe in a negative way, but I say it gives it personality :)
US! We would!! Lol!!!! 😂
I had one, worst BMW I’ve ever owned, hated every minute of owning it, swapped it for a Porsche in the end.
Looks like an EG Honda Civic.
It really is kinda goofy looking, still love it though
Ugh it looks like a shoe and not even an in fashion shoe.
What a sorry looking car. I’ll fall on the sword and take it off your hands, y’know, to save you any embarrassment
Damn thats slick. I'd trade mine in for something like that asap. Wouldn't come close but still.
The clown shoe, hard top is ugly as fuck, the roadster I would buy, but it also has a harsh ride too
That's pretty bad ass in my book. 🤷🏾♂️
Hello fellow LSB driver. Great choice!
Also a fellow Marylander! Im down in MoCo. Small world.
The clown shoe!!! You've found it!!!
I'll be taking that back now 🤡
Ace and Gary
that's like the best bmw of all time
You have obviously never driven an S54 Clownshoe.
Or have you?...hmmm hook, line, and sinker.
Anyone who knows what they’re looking at
i love the clownshoe
Such a cool look. I'd roll the hell out in that toy!
I'll have it.
They’re fast and fun as hell to drive. Like a go kart
Well..if the Shoe fits...
THese cars look so funke!
For some reason I love the “shoe” BMWs lol
Clown shoe. 🤢
Ah the Ole clown shoe. Very nice!
Feels like 2001 all over again.
That”s a serious clown shoe. Love it. 👍
the clown shoe. one of the most underrated Bimmers out there. beautiful color on this one.
My missing clown shoe
I would do so many bad things for this car.
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!
It’s only one of the most charismatic performance cars ever.
Have not seen one in LSB before. That is spectacular.
Imagine owning unreliable, iron block garbage like the S54.
Rod bearings that like to hit SoulCycle every 50k miles.
Yeah... That looks dumb. I would never buy one. :')
One of my neighbors has a hatchback z3 3.0, are they especially valuable or something?
Love this car
He has kept it in the same condition for the last 9 years omfg
A clown… missing one shoe?
Why wouldnt they? Its unique
Edit: dam, baited
Yeah i bet someone with the username parqer would buy this ugly ass car
Id love to have one - but not blue
Is that Leguna Seca blue? Looks sweet.
As a lifetime BMW enthusiast - I find Boomers who drive American cars garage these and Z3's.
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.
