Frank,
Congrats on the new ride man... I can't say I've done much research on it, but eventually we will all own one among the other toys.
I'm sure you will enjoy it despite of the negativity or shall I say ignorance.. No matter what forum it is, there will always be someone (or two) that derails the point of the post.

Good luck.

Sweet ride Frank! Iove how it looks all futuristic . I'll bet not having to fuel up so often must be really sweeeet, not to mention convenient. Enjoy your new toy!

Don't even bother with some non-sense, you know what you have and we don't, easy as that.

Haha, I try but sometimes I won't be. I'm all for being completely honest whether it be good or bad or harsh. Any plans for the Volt?!

Traded my 750 for a Volt about 5 months ago.

Guys I don't miss the 750, the Volt is a ton of fun to drive and I get way more positive comments about it than I ever did in the 750. It pays for itself comparatively with gas. I'm at around 100mpg after 6000 miles. Would be much better but took a couple long family vacation trips...

Great car!

I think the Volt looks better than my 750. Volts are sweet and I love the headlights and tail lights. Either way I think there are a good car and if your buying either one you can probably afford close to whatever car you want so no need to argue! Your both clearly winning.(Sorry for the Charlie Sheen reference)

RKUZ. Do you like Rick Perry? I have to ask cause you have a kickass 750, and your from Texas. I love politics but and Rick Perry is one of my favorites, but I would love a Texans view.

Go away? Why do you keep coming to MY post, to knock MY car. I really don't understand you man. You can enjoy any post you want but your giving me the most attention? I posted my car to show & tell why I enjoy the car. Isn't that why most people post? I love to debate but you stated bring disrespectful stating I live with my parents & questioning my financial status. What's your motivation?
You also keep bring up the miles per gallon issue as if its so hard to understand. People average different gpm depending on how often that person commutes. So if I charge my car at home drive to work(35 miles), put it on the charging station at work. After work drive home then I have not used any gas driving 70 miles. If my job didn't provide our employee parking lot with charge stations I wouldn't be able to charge my car while at work. In this case I would use more gas lowering the mpg.
That's why I posted the photos of my gage showing my average mpg & the charging stations at my job.

So what don't you understand? Must we keep going back & forth. I agree to disagree with you. I am happy that you enjoy your 7 and with the technology in this car I really don't feel like I down graded.

There you go with that BS name calling again, smh. I don't know where your from but over here in Ca theres a certain respect that most men show for each other because there can be certain consequences if you don't. But I can tell you don't live your life by the the same kind of codes. Because I know for a fact that you wouldn't behave or speak like this to me when you come from behind you computer.

My god rkuz, how ignorant are you. Pardon me, because I hate to get in something that's not my business but you're going way too far with everything. You're disrespecting a fellow member on an ENTHUSIAST site not where we HAVE to talk BMW's. Many on the different sub groups make OT to discuss non-related things, it's all part of the camaraderie. Quit hating on his new purchase. Whats it to you what he spends on. Grown the hell up, you want to talk BMW's get your act together because people like yourself then end up reflecting on the whole brand not just the 7's. Many of the long term members here don't even reply or come on here because of attitudes like yours. It's so sad because when someone really needs help with a legitimate problem no one will reply just by knowing annoying trolls like yourself are around. If you don't agree with someone just don't even bother.

I will alway appreciate what this site has done for me. fixed my L7 system. I was also guided to the best place to fix my weep hole problem. But there's alway one hiding behind his computer getting things riled up.

I see no problem with this topic, I gave a warning to rkruz and removed his post.

Something to remember: the thread was reported by a member that hardly ever post on the board; owns another type of BMW (not a 7) and was reading thru the board. We get a lot of traffic thru this section and not everyone is a 7 owner.

I don't mind a disagreement and will naturally stay out of the discussion untill it's reported, in this case rkruz went too far.

Chris

When do I get to keep, remember I am paying part of it every day as are hopefully all other readers here as well. I also endorse them as they leave more gas for me.
Good luck with it.
