"Bimmer" presumedly a euphemism for a BMW, if so I've never heard of that before?

Heard of a "Beamer" though

Thanks for comments gentlemen.

@Mike: https://www.bimmer-mag.com/

Urban dictionary:
Bimmer
What an enthusiast calls a BMW automobile. Enthusiasts who drive bimmers will make sure that the unwashed masses do not call them "beemer"; to do so is apparently a grave offense against car enthusiasts everywhere, as a beemer is a BMW motorcycle.

I got this lesson verbatim from Jan Anne when I called his car a 'beemer' .... :D It's a 'bimmer' for Pete's sake.

Mike, its the same with Nikkor lenses.

The majority will tell you they have a Nikon lens but on forums like NG we talk about Nikkor lenses :)

Unless we in fact do talk about Nikon [SE] lenses. We ought to know the difference ...
