When I lived in Petaluma, CA we used to call them "Basic Marin Wheels".....for all the yupies that lived north of San Fran.(Marin County) Tried hard to look wealthy while usually driving stripped 3 series.
Yah I lived in Marin and then San Francisco for years, also, and remember all of it really well.
Every Monday morning, there was a HUGE line of BMWs waiting outside the BMW of SF service department, that had gotten their windows crashed and the stereos stolen out of them over the weekend.
The Mercedes Benz sedans in Southern Marin county were called "Ross Volkswagens" and "Beverly Hills Volkswagens". They were all over the place.
There used to be an old Marin County joke that "all cuture in Marin ceased to exist North of Lucas Valley Road". lol
My brother still is in Petaluma.
BMW = Break my window, bites my wallet, black man's wish, barely moving wreck, Bavarian manure wagon, beats mere walking, beyond my wages, big money wasted, blew my wad, bring many wrenches, broken money waster, a million more perjoratives for them.
What is the meaning of BMW, acronym, words, terms, idioms
<--- superschnelle 300 hp 10:1 ECE euro HV, Hochverdichtung = high compression (11/2011) ... Wie im Freien Fall. Nur horizontal.
