Some new flicks 7, range sport and phantom

Been a while since Ive posted anything. I finally painted the roof black to the 7er. Also we just painted the HRE rims to wifees range sport to match the infamous white and black color combo of my 7.

Interesting thing happen 3 weeks ago, A good friend of mine dropped off his phantom (and the monthly payment) for me to take over while he gets his finances in order, and the GREAT friend that I am agreed to take it over! So now Im stuck driving this bucket! ...... OK OK its not so bad!

Anyways I just wanted to mention how the Phantom has the soul of our 7's same key, same idrive interface and even the same guy that says " please say a command" THE SAME VOICE!

However for the price tag spike the phantom has no :
soft touch doors, no power trunk, no one touch windows in the rear, no a/c or massage seats, and no sunshades.

Believe me when I tell you we are all driving the best dollar for dollar car on the road. I have compared many cars to our 7's and they always fall short.

Don't get me wrong , I have not driven my 7 since I inherited the RR , Its a SICK car but overall feature for feature the 7 takes 1st place.

sweet rides for sure. i have to say from riding in a Bentley gt, RR and a few others, for the money the 7 is the way to go. i personally cant stand the inside of a Bentley, and the Maserati is completely junk; reminds me of a 1994 GMC truck.

have fun driving the rolls around

realsevenfigure,

TCPilot approves. Living in full Miami Player style!

I can't see myself in a RR; the BMW just fits me better. I'm about 100% German, so that's probably a natural condition .

Nice cars, nice place, and you have a beautiful wife!

/TCP

Thanks gentleman, yeah the white lips are good for 2 days if Im lucky, and the flat tire lights on the RR, Im assuming the sensors were not installed on the rims. I agree (and admit) the payment is heavy but we only live once right?

seven11,

the phantom and the 7er are two completely different vehicles; making it unfair to compare 7er to RR. RR is a in which one is chauffeured, as in the 7er one drives on his own.

Phantom is entirely priced and over hyped; real money buys an Arnage and saves 150k-200k.

the reason why i said what i said is because he has a 7

and also why do u always come and pretend you know everything, who the hell is gonna buy an arnage when they are in the market for a Phantom... people like that dont want to save that 100k, they want it they buy it

seven11,

i know very well what you wrote; i can read, thank god.

you are always on the defense; nobody said anything out of conversation towards you; nor was there any ill will.

you compared a 300k+ RR Phantom to a 100k bmw 7er (being very generous); proceeding was my affirmation of how these two cars vary.( as you said you would never go back to a 7er after a RR)

i know some kid whos father has a phantom( and a slew of other automobiles) and he also just so happens to have a bmw 7. I guess he could go back to the 7er huh?

if somebody has facts to prove your opinons wrong you get in a hissy fit.

Lighten up; no one here is against you.

regards
