It's time for the 2022 "E46 of the Year" showdown!

Instead of a new contest for January, we're letting last year's winners battle it out for the top spot. The prizes? Bragging rights, a boosted ego, and a not-so-fancy forum badge to show off your victory. Cast your vote throughout the month, and we'll announce the winner when the poll has closed, and any ties have been broken. And if any of the previous winners want to plead their case for your vote, go ahead and do it here in this thread.

Your nominees are:
February - @Darkstar5379

March - @Galapolis
April - @rcsummers & @kylanjohnson
May - @sillieidiot
June - @e4t6
July - @Darkstar5379
August - @EstateTax
September - @Igor-onlyBMW
October - @E46Snoozy
November - @paraklas
December - @vtwagon

Just to clarify, are would-be-voters voting on the car, or the photo?
That is entirely up to the individual casting their vote. If you want to add more photos, feel free to use this thread. Consider it a part of your campaigning. ;)

Is the banner going back at the top of every page?
I missed this until today.

Love to hear/see more from the competitors (as a few were only allowed to post one pic)!

I thought it would be fun to show a quick recap of my ownership here. This is the highlights, not comprehensive. Enjoy!

The day she came home (my twin daughter's birthday; so happy to have a supportive wife!) I saw the car on craiglslist at 9pm the night before, I was there at 8am with cash and the trailer, and beat out 3-4 other potential buyers.
