As I approach my car in the mornings I imagine myself going on a fast roller coaster thrill ride. I open the car door, start the engine, and listen to its rev as if it were a fighter jet about to take off. The rumbling of the exhaust makes me want to push the car to the limit. My car is my most valued possession to date, and one of the most important things in my life. I believe that everyone deserves a dependable, quality vehicle with an appealing look that captures people's attention.
In my family we believe that the BMW is the Ultimate Driving Machine and always lives up to its name. My 2010 BMW 535i is my first car. It belonged to my mother until she purchased a new vehicle. The first time I drove my car can be compared to riding a wild bull in a rodeo. When driving the car at normal speeds it still feels as if the car is trying to pull away.
I think the look and color of the vehicle reflects the owner's personal taste and unique style. The color of my car is mystic blue, when I laid eyes on it for the first time I just knew it was the one. The soothing, sweet color of blue reminds me of the ocean and makes me admire the car. I think that the color adds to the sporty and modern look of the car. Just recently I tinted my windows to fifty percent. The car has a fully digital dashboard that feels so smooth to the touch, with carbon fiber paddle shifts on the steering wheel. The dashboard LED lights are bright at night, which makes me feel like I'm inside of a space shuttle.
My car is a rear wheel drive, four door sedan. To me my car sounds like a speed demon, and when the engine rumbles it makes me want to accelerate until I reach the limit. The engine of the car is a 3.0 liter I-6 cylinder turbo engine with 300 horsepower. The 0 to 60 in my car is 5.5 seconds, which is pretty fast. My car gets 20 miles per gallon in the city and 29 on the highway. The cars handling can be compared to the sharpness of a samurai sword. My car has two driving modes, sport and the regular eight speed. When listening to music in my car I imagine being in a studio booth and usually trail off into my own world.
My car has so many features and gadgets that it's hard for me to remember everything. My favorite features in the car are the rearview camera and the full color heads-up display. The heads-up display shows key driving information such as speed and navigation instructions on the window shield, which is very useful while operating the vehicle. I think that the heads-up display makes driving easier and safer.
In conclusion my car has giving me much pride, joy, and excitement in my life. Car ownership has made me become more responsible and grateful for the things I have been given.
