A couple of pics from my dealership visit

Here are a couple of iphone pics I snapped at the dealer when dropping off/picking up my car last week at Long Beach BMW.

First one is a 745 exahust - never seen this one, and while it is not really my taste, it was VERY well done. Pipes were straight and the bumper lined up perfectly:


And an X-6 - never seen one in person before. Kinda small, but nice looking too:

I don't like the X6 at all. It looks like a hot mess.

the exhaust on the rear of the 7 just does not justify the body of the vehicle... but hey if the owner likes it, then it is what it is....

You guys are funny. I thought "WHAT THE HELL?" and my next instinct was to snap a pic for you guys to see. I dunno what brand that is, but it looks like an expensive job with the bumper work or bumper replacement.

Love the X6. Hottest BMW out there right now and hardest to get.

They are giving M3/5/6's away like candy though.

That guy must have corvette envy lol....but does not look like a hack job at least. I am surprised there are no other visible mods like a spoiler or lip?

The Corvette exhaust on the 7 on the other hand....

haha the mid-quad exhaust thing is well funny, looks like someone took the Zonda exhaust concept too literally.. as for the X6, its a funny kinda car but having seen those 21s in person, i really like them. i'd take the rims over the car. hehe..
