    When you can drive from your office in PA to your office in NC without stopping once for fuel or to stretch because your car is just that efficient, and seats just that comfortable.

    This all of the time. And everything else in this thread. I'm glad I'm not alone. lol

    When you drive your sporty German saloon car hard for a quick minute then think about how much you shortened the life span of the expensive tires in that little moment of glory. And possibly the brakes as well. haha

    New here..
    But I guess you know you're a 7 owner when you've only owned one for a few weeks and you have a friend who is now dead set on buying one himself. Its hard to resist.

    you always feel like the trans is slipping
    this is big where i live. (waterford, mi.) watertucky for short. You get road raged drivers giving you attitude cuz it's a big black bmw. And not a ford.
    Can't go to the local o'riely's to get spark plugs... "special order sir"
    i do love setting the alarm...
    Hate passengers touching any buttons.
    Won't valet park.
    Walking around the car 2 or 3 times making sure no door dings from that idiot that parked too close.

    Now that is funny!

    You know you are a 7 owner when

    ...you have spent 3 times more on repairs then the actual cost of the vehicle
    ...you would contemplate spending over $1000.00 to get a barely noticeable ding off your door.
    ...you are constantly wondering when the next time bomb will go off and you will have to spend even more money on the car
    ...you contemplate constantly whether the front suspension will fall apart if you don't replace the linkage.
    ...you are constantly concentrating on the parts that you haven't replaced yet...Transmission, alternator, pulleys, front and rear suspension

    When you think before letting people borrow your car.
    - Don't think, answer is always no!!

    When the wife or gf are afraid to touch it, cuz they know you will blow a fuse if they scratch anything
    - Wife was the only other person that drives it and is stressed about it when she does ( was in tears when she scrubbed a gutter and scratched a rim)

    When you tell your wife that she is not allowed to drive it...
    ( this didn't go over well by the way )
    - Got told this after she scratched the rim! ( didn't go over that well either )


    When you read a post like this and say "That's What I'm Talking About" out loud.... LoL
    - And nodding!!

    When first-time back seat passengers ask you why you bought a limo.
    - Daughter doesn't want to go anywhere unless we take the '7'

    - When your mother-in-law says 'what?' when you tell your wife you 'are in the garage playing with the car', and you have to explain what playing with the car means.

    - when you spend hours on bimmerforums.com and the internet looking up ways to fix things, or for parts, and that is normal ( isn't it????)

    You know you're a BMW owner when your brother in law gets a new truck and when showing it off shows how he can roll down all the windows with the key fob. You just say 'that's cool, never would have thought of that.'

    M62 on steroids yeah!
    When you're @the track and a spectator comes out of the stands after you make your run and says WTF do you have in that thing, I wasn't expecting a mid 12sec ET from that 740! LOL
    "Secondly, there are plenty of realistic BMW owners in here posting that they lost. I don't see you asking asinine questions in their threads. What about the Ferrari kills Ingenere posts?"

    When your rent is late because you spent all your money parts you had to convince your wife you "really need".

    You know your a 7 owner when, even though you have your dream one, you still keep an eye out for one that is a "steal" to add to the collection.
