Bye bye 335xi

In 2007 I purchased a BMW 335xi for European Delivery in Munich. The discount was fabulous, and the opportunity to drive it in Germany was uber fun. Here I am picking it up at the delivery center in Munich:

Three years and 23,000 miles later the lease ended and here it is being turned in.

This was the funnest and most competent car I have ever had. If I hadn't purchased a new BMW (see future post) I would have bought this one at lease end.

So now our garage went from this:

To this:

Welcome to the 2004 Toyota Corolla, previously owned by Blair and Bridget. This is one practical and economical car.
I know it is a guy thing to take pictures of and write poems about your cars (in addition to your kids), but here goes:
It's time for goodbye
to my 335xi.
After three years of fun
sorry to drop you and run.


  1. Oh how I miss the Corolla. Did you save its little gas mileage booklet? That is almost like a diary to me so if you still have it, put it somewhere safe.

  2. Hey, only guys are supposed to have attachments to their cars!

    Yes, I still have and use that "diary".
