So HD - are you planning on getting a new set of shoes or sticking with that set?

Mein Auto: 2004 745i and 2005 S2000
2004 745i

I'm new to the BMW 7 family and bimmerfest. I bought a 2004 745i last April and am truly in love with the car. I feel bad because I'm neglecting my other toy car which is a Honda S2000. Not too bad though because the 745i ROCKS! Any suggestions for modifications? The car looks murdered out already. Just trying to get ideas from the experts.

I've been loitering here since 2/06. Have an 02 745i and this site has been invaluable. Thanks to guys like sunny_j and BMW_tech and many others I've learned a lot and posted a few times with what I've learned and experienced. I'm a hands on car guy, raised on Toyota's, and have done alot of regular maintenance myself and solved a few high tech mysteries on my 7 and none of it would be possible without you guys and this site. Thanks to all

Ron, here is my idea! Wald kit, some brushed rims, AC Schnitzer Mirrors, roof and trunk spoilers and drop. It all depends on how far you want to take it, and what $$$$$

Cool

Hello, I'm new 2 the forum found this place 2 be a good resource. I have an '02 745li with 5 weeks left on the 6yr/100k mile warranty so I am currently shopping around 4 extended warranties (suggestions welcomed). I can't figure out if its the car sitting on 22's or my beautiful smile that has all the guys taking a double take but either way I love the attention me and my 745 are getting.

Can you give me a ballpark figure on how much you think I'll spend on what you rrecommendations are? I have decisions to make. Trip to Asia, paying my mortgage, buying the girlfriend an LV purse. So many options...
