    Use the ruler to draw five straight lines parallel to each other across the piece of paper, horizontally. Space them 1 inch apart. Then, draw two vertical lines on the far left side of the group. Draw one of the vertical lines along the edge of where the other lines ended. Then, move 1 inch toward the inside of the drawing and draw another vertical line. These are just to help guide you while drawing the BMW.

    Draw the outline of the BMW next. Starting at the bottom of the windshield, use the lines you first drew to guide you, and draw up toward the roof of the BMW. Draw the two tires and head light shapes.

    Add even more details. Draw in the spokes to the rims, then proceed to sketch in the tread of the tires. Add door handles, and the window side mirror of the BMW. Add the indentation in the bonnet of the BMW to show the sleekness of the car. Clean up any stray marks, and fix mistakes with the pencil eraser. Also, erase the graph lines that you drew in the first step. Make sure the BMW drawing looks proportioned.

    Add other details if you desire, such as the BMW logo and bonnet ornament. Colour in the car in the colour you desire, remembering to add the lighter white sheen of reflection down the sides of the car.
