Once it's financed the bank has accepted risk as you have liability. They can dictate full coverage since it is really 'theirs'...if you bought it. If you're renting, er I mean leasing ( ) , I think the same applies.

BTW...my car is back in the US and in my hands.

Mein Auto: 325i convertible
Hi all. I am new to this forum and I am not usually online to keep seeing the msg but if anyone knows the solution of my problem please email me to firaszaytoun@yahoo.com

I bought 2008 convertible 325i couple of weeks ago, and when I took it to the first car wash, the roof leaked, big amount of water. Then, few days later, I opened the roof and drove normally, when I reached and wanted to close the roof it got stuck. the 3 top peices came out of the trunk, and the rear lid closed, but the three peices got stuck just above the rear seat. nothing could move it back. I called the dealer and had the car put on recovery. now I am still waiting to tell me how much it will cost.

Have anyone had similar problem? What did you do this case? and if I fix it is there a probability that the same will happen again, I mean soon?

Thanks all, and please if there is a way I can see these msg on my iphone?

Sam Posey's Gullwing

We went to a party at Sam Posey's home on Saturday and he had a number of his cars including this 1954 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing on display.







There is an interesting article from a recent Road and Track about Sam and his Gullwing here:

I like the way the display comes up for the F30

@Cap - Great pic. Did you have a good time? Did the Admiral have a fun time too?

A certain forum member sent me a Jewish Goat and said I must use it as my avatar, especially given the Jewish holiday season.
As such, I shall do my duty!

Don't know, but it smells of a Yankee plot. Someone who would have the leadership skills to manage a group of about 30 BMWs (and a few Porsches)

Watkins Glen Vintage Grand Prix

On Friday September 7th they closed the streets and the classic cars drove on the original street course that was used for the races from 1948 to 1952.

Kia boxes

Why is it, when ever I see one of those Kia boxes on the road, I never see giant hamsters inside? Do they know something the humans don't?

Cap'n if you get to see the XF-RS reveal, can you take pics? That is one car I am really exciting about.

Who runs bimmerpost? Whoever it is is a retard. Banned me because I said the F80 M3 looks like a GT-R. Seriously? Can you not disagree over there? Dictatorship taking over. Geez.

That's absurd. (Edit: No, I'm wrong; andrew b helped me understand. )

Speaking of the GT-R, I saw one at the local supermarket the other day. I never noticed how H-U-G-E the tailpipes are on that thing. Quad exhausts, each of which looks large enough to swallow a softball, plus or minus a millimeter or two.

The GT-R was there when I left the store. When I arrived, 15 minutes earlier, a Ferrari 400i had been parked in the same space. I was tempted to hang around another half-hour to see what arrived next (Veyron?).

I know of the mod on the forum which banned you. Consider it a badge of honor. I used to be a regular there under another name. I finally decided that the place wasn't worth dealing with a petty dictator and left. Funny thing is, a lot of the 'Sticky' information there is mine!

It really is run like a dictatorship! Can't even voice your opinion! I'm part of the club now. No place like the 'fest.

Happy Birthday, car--two years old as of last week. (The occasion didn't seem quite momentous enough to revive any of the ancient rear-fog threads.)

Last year's (belated) gift was the center-console iPod pouch. For next year I'm thinking either the seat-back nets or Euro (amber) rear turn signals. One step closer to equipping it the way it should have been, before BMW NA stripped the little touches!
