    • N54 owner begs for $25k on Gofundme to fix his car

      This is pathetic. These days it seems anyone creates a Gofundme fundraiser for any reason just expecting money to pour in. This sad example is of some N54 owner begging online for $25k to fix his E92 335i.


      Is the N54 unreliable? Well, it has that reputation but part of the problem stems from people who do not know what they are doing attempting stupid things. Many N54 owners as you can read about in the forums do their own work and maintenance and their cars run well.

      Unfortunately, you get kids who get in over their heads trying to make a bazillion horsepower who can not afford to properly maintain the car and it results in a bad reputation and crap like this.

      Hopefully nobody is stupid enough to donate to this nonsense.

        You can buy a decent working maintained 335i these days for less thank 25k by far. I have a mint meticulously maintained 2008 with 20k miles and it won’t fetch 25k.

        Exactly.

        This is so stupid I didn't think it was serious at first.

        lol

        I love my N54 but there are days I've asked Tony if he wants to buy the thing for $50 shipped. 25k is hilarious, that's well into push off a cliff territory unless you're doing some very remarkable things.

        Jesus, these asshats will make a go fund me for anything. If you can't pay to play, stay out of the game is what I always thought. This new generation thinks that everyone else should have to pay for whatever THEY want, at least that is how it looks to me.

        Yeah jesus christ you could probably get a used 340i for $25k or at the very least a CPO F30 335i and skip the whole N54 garbage reliability.

        Not sure why he’s so worried about a 335i, when he’s got that sweet scooter chillin’ in his garage.

        Yeah, why $25K? That's about 5X what car is worth. Sounds like he's planning to create an "epic build" on gofundme money. Honestly, whatever - if he can get people to donate, more power to him - but I will continue to laugh with schadenfraude at the lack of contributions.

        Is working just not a thing any more? There's 80+ people begging for money to fix their BMW.

        The future of the human race is doomed. Aliens need to come, take over, and give us a hard reset.

        If they can't afford to fix it, and can't do anything themselves they shouldn't own the damn car to begin with

        This is a microaggression and reinforces the patriarchy. Transportation is clearly for everyone. If you get to drive your BMW on the road it is only fair I get to drive mine or you are perpetrating classism and socio-economic discrimination.

        Now give me money.

        Thought a drivers license was a privilege, not a right. So not everyone is destined to drive, and those that can have plenty of cars to choose from for their price range. If you can't pay to play, stay out the game because nobody owes anyone a bailout

        I'm not sure how but this is racist.

        There's no race inferred or mentioned. May be considered a bit rough on the people that can't afford it, but I'm damn sure you've posted far more elitist crap than that
