Buckle Up!

Celebrating the classic German sedan, from BMW’s oldest modern line-up, the 5 Series, built in the pre-digital age 90s, the unmistakable E39 model.

As a proud owner of Munich’s executive series offering and one of the most revered production models in the world, this machine has brought me incredible experiences and ongoing joy every time I sit behind the wheel.

Let me show you my journey.

Bimmer History

Quick roundup of the last 100 years.

The history of BMW is long, illustrious and well documented. The allegiance, loyalty and drive of the respective owners is just as impressive. I’ve had the chance to speak to a number of bimmer owners and there’s one thing in common with all of them: they wouldn’t want to drive any other car and they were adamant about it. I know exactly what they mean.

On this website, I’ve tried to put together a comprehensive, yet short, complete and hopefully fun historical overview of the brand that brings joy to so many. I’m not a historian by any means and I’ve had to use a number of sources to help me along the way, but I do know how to present information in an interesting way, so I hope it’s worth your while!
