The colour is a bit striking for my tastes but I think you could pull it off

As for the wheels though, I think they are a little too large, I mean they look a tad ridiculous.... not to mention the ride xD

Well, this certainly explains your several months long hiatus from the fest. You've been doing some soul searching, and you found yourself in an Tang Orange 7.

I nearly lost my mind a year back; telling people they were adding the Dodge Charger package to their 7, seriously, I almost went off the deep end.

Good for you, brother. Enjoy. Subscribed, assuming this is your official build threads.

Yes I have been planning my come back for a while now. I have been busy doing research. I want to do something no one on here have done before

I dont understand why all these guys are "hating" on me. Im going to have 28 inch rims that most people on here can't afford. All the people on 22 inch rims are on 22s because they cant afford the extra 6 inches.

Dont hate just congratulate.

Im going to have a 32 inch TV screen on the roof so as I drive through the "projects" people hanging out in their balcony's can see what I am watching. A roof rack would just get in the way

Hey! Did you ever stop and think about how that may effect the structural integrity of your roof?

Oh yes, and at xmas time you can put a strand of lights on them.. very classy.. I like the stick on vent option above too.. If you drill holes under them you may make them functional.. may help with cooling..

There used to be an item called a Vroombox.. I am not sure if it's still around, but it's an actual product, or was.. and what it did was, it hooked into your car stereo and synced with your RPM's and you could pick what kind of engine sound you wanted and when you drove it made the sound with your RPM's so it sounded like it was your engine.. You could pick big american motors, indy car, import.. you name it.. funniest thing I had ever seen..

To save money I went with a 32 inch TV screen which has a picture tube on the back. Only problen is that it will be quite heavy. I plan on strengthening the B and C pillar with some metal framing shanks my friend had left over from his metal garage build. I will cover them with carbon fiber so they should look very good.

The TV will be covered in plexiglass with neon lights. The plexiglass will protect the TV when it rains and the neon lights will add some required bling.

Dont do it man! The 7 is a grown person car. Its horrible what people will do to such a beautiful luxury car. Thats a picture of complete utter foolishness. Keep your BMW sexy, not stank-ish.
