    When you have to argue with the gas attendant about the fact that it WILL actually take all $70 to fill it, and yes you know your gauge says just under a 1/4 tank already.

    Guilty on the 5 series being cramped comment. I see it as I have graduated to a "big boy car" with my 7.

    Wow all within 2 months. But on the flip side your car should last well over another 100k miles.

    Whilst said breath smells of vodka and axle grease. ..... lol


    Some Places remain unknown because no one has ventured forth. Others remain so because no one has ever come back...............

    When you drop over $4000 for a complete suspension refresh and it's actually cheaper then getting into a new car loan.

    I'll try one out from my first week of ownership: When every single part at PartSource (like autozone I believe) is a special order, even wiper blades.

    There are better choices than Autozone, especially if your looking to put OEM parts back in your 7. OEMBIMMERPARTS. AUTOHAUZ, BAVARIAN AUTOPARTS and FCP just to name a few.

    When you feel that when sitting in almost any other car, you have to raise your voice because of the terrible wind and tire noise.
    And when you get irritated when people call it an "old BMW", because to you it is so much more than that and definitely a LOT better than many of the new BMWs.
