7-Series Event in SF

Just returned from the 7-Series even in San Francisco - nice event! We spoke with the car-cover-puller, and he said there were five events in the city (some 80-odd events across the US). I have to say it is a nice looking vehicle. The feel of the interior is better than our 2003 (not just because it is approaching its 6th birthday!). No pics to share, but it was a good time...

Sorry I missed you - I was the guy with the 4 year old. Long story short - wife's flight was delayed 5 hours out of Minneapolis due to the snow (didn't make it home till 10.30pm), the nanny had the flu, so I didn't want to burden her with 2 boys.

I like the style of the car, especially the interior. Overall, in one word - BIG. But if I was in the market for a 5er or 7er, and didn't mind the price differential, I'd get the F01 750i. Make it the Saphire Black one.

Did you ask to open the hood of the Li? If so, I was the guy in the driver's seat!!!
