Namibia: Brian Plays the Field in His BMW 'drop Top'

Article Views (non — When you are the kind of guy who likes to score big on the soccer field, then you also want to be equally noticed when you driving around town, which is what soccer player Brian Brendell has achieved and more since buying his new set of wheels two months ago.

As one of the main midfield players for the Civics Football Club, Brian now have another favourite past time, and that is driving around in his 1989 E30 BMW 325i 'drop top'. Being a self confessed BMW fan, he has had his eye on this model for a long time, and snapped up the car when he saw it advertised by its previous Oranjemund owner.

"It goes like a bomb," said the Rehoboth born sportsman, flashing a naughty smile, adding that it has over 200 000 kays on the clock, and aside from it requiring some minor mechanical work when he first bought it, the V6 engine runs like a dream and it has plenty of power under the bonnet.

Apart from the 'sexy' drop top factor which appeals to the young 'soccer in-crowd', are some of the extra features that the vehicle came with, such as being fitted with black leather upholstery, rear seat DVD screens and 17" mag rims.

"It is hard to find a BMW 325i Cabriolet these day, and I was thrilled to be able to find one in such excellent condition, " he added.

"I have had my heart set on owning one of these cars for a long time, and this is a dream come true", continued Brian saying that he thinks that his 23-year-old 'baby' might be the only one driving around Namibia's roads.

"Christmas came early for me because there is not much that can top my BMW, and with plans to beef up my sound system, the guys are going to be truly envious of me."

One other little change will be the license place which he is going to personalise to 'BB 14', which stands for Brian's initials and his soccer jersey number.
