Hi folks I'm new and from the UK. The 7's a great car and fantastic value for money when 2/3 years old over here.
Not sure I'll mod mine much but would love to get some bright white angel eyes although have heard they're a pain to fit.

New to this thread...

What I like most about the European models Vs US models is the long and narrow license plates as opposed to the short and fat ones in US!

Posted a couple of pics, nothing special... more in my profile.

Nice pics (I think you will find that its "licence" not "license" by the way but apart from that I'd swop the current UK weather for California any day).

Nice pix! 128s look bigger than 21s but I know it's because of the camera angle. Keep it clean man!

Thanks and also thanks for correcting my grammar. That is the US English influence I guess:

You're right about the weather though, winter is brutal in UK, and we have been spoiled in California.

(was meant as a joke by the way as I know you guys have a slightly different language - we have a boot, you have a trunk, we have a bonnet, you have a hood etc etc)

We had our first frost this last weekend and am grateful for BMW's paintwork protection - thankfully rust is a thing of the past these days.

That's alright, the way I look at it, it is never too late to learn a something new!

Rust? that's not a word in our vocabulary here in California! I think if salt is used on the roads to melt the ice, that will eventually rust the metal unless it is protected from underneath. In those states that get snow, they spray underneath of the cars to prevent rusting from inside-out, so to speak.

You're right about the imperfections... I wish they made the 745's as perfect as they did you! Wait... you also like spending time in Casinos?? A girl after my own heart! You're now officially invited to come to U.S. and to go to Vegas with me! Hopefully you also know how to play Blackjack?!

Our casinos in ireland are really only for kids- not like Vegas only been there once- look at the jackpot on the machine in the pic its 6.00 GBP sterling pathethic jackpot whats that 4$ - we have such sad narrow minded politicians over here!!!!
And when you got me on a moan petrol is near 10$ a gallon no wonder me only does about 5 miles a day during the week in my seven!!!!

I'm new, first time ever to own a BMW, owned a Lexus, Mercedes and Infiniti... But this BMW is nothing compare to all of my old cars.

I love every second of every ride.
