Arrow The official Bimmerfest 2007 Photo thread

It's 2:13 am. I've been up since 4:40 am yesterday! What an amazing day... Before I sneak off to be I'd like to ask everyone to chime in and post some pics from Bimmerfest today. THANK YOU to all attendees and sponsors for making Bimmerfest 2007 the best ever! More to report later after some sleep...

OzBoy - What do you think?


Edit: I corrected the reference from 645Ci to 745i. Yes. I was wrong, But it was a typo. I know no one will ever believe me,
I think that was one of the most photographed cars of the day. You couldn't walk buy it without people stopping dead in their tracks.

The customed 7 Series inside the showroom with Aligator Seats was also something to be seen. They claimed to be the only "V-10" engine 7 series ever made...

Anyone else notice the Z8 had the structure flaw?



The hood was pinching on the passenger side and wide open on the driver's.

He no longer competes but still builds them for customers. He showed me pics of a Suburban with a bunch of 15s in the back. Why, I ask?

Watch my bot Tommys windshield flex I guess it's just something some don't understand Like any hobby there will be naysayers but all in all there are some great people and we had fun traveling together. I also had an affiliation with Steve Head years back but he has since outgrown our small scale vehicles and is running with the mega millionaire cars nowadays. So just like the fest is bringing the BMW community together the car audio circuit is all about some folks having a good time together and then there are some who take it all way too seriously.

The customed 7 Series inside the showroom with Aligator Seats was also something to be seen. They claimed to be the only "V-10" engine 7 series ever made...
I could be wrong, but are you not speaking of the Twin Turbo M5 with alligator interior that they claimed was the only twin turbo V10 M5?
