Bimmers or most commonly known as BMW cars are not only automobiles; they are a symbol of class, sophistication, and status. BMW forums are available for bimmer owners, fans, and enthusiasts; where people can discuss anything and everything that there is to discuss bimmers.
There are thousands of forums created explicitly for BMWs. Viewing posts and discussions on these sites are generally free.

These types of forums are more of a club than just that of a typical forum site. Though there are free ones, forums with premiums offer several advantages and perks.
BMW forums have categories for easy navigation and site viewing.
Depending on the forum's origin, one common category is the Marketplace. This is where BMW owners and business owners post products and services.

On forums with premiums, the member gets a significant advantage in the Marketplace. The higher your premium is, the more priority your posts gets. If you have a BMW service shop or if you sell BMWs, this is a great advantage. Your posts and advertisements would always go on top regardless of how many new postings there are.
