Default BMW's and Snowboarding!

I thought I should formally introduce myself as I am obviously new to the forum, and can usually be found on e46fanatics as my love for BMW's is probably greater than snowboarding(due to being year round for me lol) I am riding a 2012 Attack Banana and Burton Mission binding's(Love it!) (Quick plug for Lib Tech as I think they are by far the best manufacturer of boards and passion out there)Looking forward to contributing and asking questions in the future days as well as benefiting from the wealth of knowledge and passion

Here is my winter setup

Real wheel drive in the snow... Fun or fail?

Bimmer vs. Beemer

Enthusiasts vs. others

Definitions:

Bimmer - proper accepted slang for BMW cars. Most people don't know this.

Beamer/Beemer - proper accepted slang for BMW motorcycles. You will hear this term used incorrectly by many people.

Bummer - When you get a speeding ticket.

Bitter - Another German car. Very rare; hand built.

So just why is a BMW car called a 'bimmer' not a 'beemer' or 'beamer'?

The answer in part lies in knowing some BMW history and what came first.

All real BMW enthusiasts know that BMW got a big start on two wheels, what many call the real BMWs.

In those days, BMW motorcycles were quite active in racing, and one of their competitors at the track was often the BSA bikes.

Well as things would have it, a track slang developed, and the BMWs were usually referred to as 'beemers' and the BSAs were referred to as 'beesers'.

So, of course for any true enthusiast, there is no way that a BMW car could be called a 'beemer', so they were called 'bimmers'.

Unfortunately, in the US and Canada, and perhaps other countries, there was a time (kind of still is) where for various reasons, a BMW owner was considered an upwardly mobile person, and of course due to the fun in driving their BMWs most all of them had big grins on their faces.

Hence it is little surprise that the non enthusiast types out there incorrectly labeled BMW cars and their owners as 'beamers' or 'beemers'.

The old 2002s are my favorite. The model 2002, not the year.

Never owned one but always wanted to.
