At least you're keeping warm in Guam.

That M5 vid is great, crazy bastard in the Philippines, I bet some people are up in arms about how he is treating the car.

Are you majoring in Engineering at ODU Robb? If so, how is their program? I don't have to many friends who have a Bachelor's in Engineering.
So are you trying to go back to school and get a Bachelor's in Engineer?

Damn, that's right in my area too, but there's only about a 40% chance I'll have the car up and running by next Saturday.

how hard is it to get a second set of headlights for a 7 are they easy to find used? the only way I would do it on my car is if I had an extra set of high beam buckets and could swap them out if I hated it/got tired of it.

fogs yes

I'm gonna try to debut them at the next meet. I'm prolly gonna test fit them monday or tuesday.
I wanna throw them on with the roof rack for my non existent bicycle. Lol, but I apparently lost the key/tool and 4 of the screws. So I'm gonna see about ordering replacements monday, or finding substitutes.

Sunset and sh1t, mmm, sounds like a romantic date bro, but I gotta say no on the bromance.

Forgot to ask, has anyone seen the new 5 series GT? I glimps one driving the opposite direction the other night. I was shocked. Its not nearly as hideous as I thought it would be.

Oh, new 5 series sedan has double wishbone front suspension.
Gents, the days of McPherson struts are numbered. Apparently the F01/2 7 series and current X5/6 have this double wishbones too.
I'm looking at some nice pics of the F10 5er and I must say, I'm impressed. Its very attractive and thinterior is too. They're saying it didn't grow too much either. Longer wheelbase, but just about the same length as the E60, but wider and not as tall, so drag coefficent stays the same, and weight almost the same too, thru the use of aluminium alloy trunk, hood, doors, fenders and suspension.

Looks like the 5 will still be full of win.

Fack, it has the fiberoptic com setup like the 7. Available brake energy regeneration, electric PS, 8 speed auto all in the name of effecient dynamics, and it has basically all the chassis and handling aids that are available to the current 7. Things like rear wheel steer, active suspension, stop and go cruise control, and enough **** to wipe your ass. This thing is no joke.

maan that is one ugly azz car. saw one at the stealership the other day. toooo wide and ugly in the front for a 5 series. The regular 5 series like the e60 is round with beautiful headlights(lovely rear lights, and overrall design)...this one is hideous. The back is even worse it looks like a damn hyundai santa fe hatch.
bmw deserves it...they screwed up once again. The new 7 series looks ridiculous also. Front is agressive...but the rear looks like they got tired of designing the car and just left it unfinished.
