    Bimmer? I’ve always heard them called Beemers.

  2. James Joyner says:

    That’s his spelling–and Car and Driver’s, too, for that matter. I think it’s because the “i” is pronounced like “e” in the German alphabet.

    a – ah
    e – ay
    i – ee
    o – o
    u – ooh

    OTOH, we’re not in Germany, are we? :big grin:

    I can recall motorcycle magazines from 25 years ago referring to BMWs as “Beemers.”
