Hey guys, I've been following the Forum for quite a while. I sold my M3 & got an E66 in Feb.
I find this is the best BMW site I've found so far. I used to go to a certain insect site but it's dead as a doornail with very little support. The support here has been exceptional & the majority of senior members are cool as hell & very knowledgeable.

No, I didn't "come from" roadfly. It was the first site I came across awhile back when I was modding my M. It got frustrating after awhile because half the time you couldn't get a response or it wasn't very active. I started spending more time over here when I decided I was going to buy an E66. Also the site is antiquated compared to most forums.

BTW, their moderators have blocked them from even typing Bimmerfest in any posts! Talk about CENSORSHIP!

I bought the car from Motorcars of Georgia (Bimmerstore) and have all of my service work done at Global. I would recommend Motorcars of Gerogia to anyone looking for a late model BMW. They also sell new Lambos and Lotus but that comes later.

As for Global...I picked my car up from service on Saturday with zero, I repeat zero gas in the tank. Range ----- miles. Not cool.

How about you?

Wow, thank you, what an honor. I like to thank my children for their support, they love my seven the same way I do, thanks to my wife even thou she complains "you're crazy about that car", "stop taking pictures of it" and "645Ci over my dead body -NO MORE BMW's FOR YOU" but drives my 7 anytime I'm not looking (Öand drives it like she just stole it too). I also want to give thanks to the supporting members of this excellent forum, we been together during low season, and now highs, they have taught me to unveil the amazing power of my magnificent 7, and all the luxury options that comes within. And even thou their emotions show like they do not care, deep down they do care. Thank you every one. (standing ovation ...and I return to my seat amidst loud applause)

lol, I'm j/k

---hey guys, donít let me do this alone Öthe "old farts" need to help on this one too.

ok Rafa7 , I ve been a member since my E39 was purchased and didnt start posting till i got my 7 in june 07, honestly the one i do respect is BMW-tech for helping and sharing info that he is not supposed to share and may be its risking his job i may assume you are not allowed to say such info if you are a tech @ a certified BMW dealer, I learned alot here and shared alot but what i hated the most when i start somthing and it has over 300 views and then someone else post the same exact question in diffrent form and gets tons of replies, what the hell is that all about, Kissing ass and bieng a prick is that what it is , BTW this is a Great thread keep up the good work .

Correcto mundo. Now, I completely support his efforts and others, is something that we all are guilty off. Search and RTFM should be coach to new members, prepared them to be helpers too.

Momo too? What? No, hell no. Iím "younger" than you man.
Momo, since youíre older than me, and you have helped here quite a bit, Iíll let Sunny or older folks welcome you to the 7 Fest.

I agree, a bow to BMW_TECH he now has his own logo (which should be improve to look nicer). I think we all appreciate him being here. Great job BMW_TECH you are honorably welcome to the Seven Forum.
