Door Dings???

So, while you are busy parking your multiple Ferarri's in your "garage" do you really worry about door dings?





Photos taken at the Cayman Motor Museum.

FWIW:
This is a very nice private collection just "hangin' out" just a few hundred yards north of the Turtle Farm on Grand Cayman.

Fun for me, was snorkling the Wreck of the "Cali" 100 yards off the beach in Georgetown. This is my first venture into underwater photography. Taken with my "old" Nikon 5700 Coolpix in a Dicapac housing.

My definition of success: One "in focus" photograph.... Lucky me! Lots more than one!!

Heck...just commission Cartier do the whole thing in Sterling. A small bottle of silver polish will take care of any tarnish...or you could tip the valets to take care of any diminished sparkle during Michelin *** restaurant excursions. You only live once.

I am very impressed with the 750Li. I can't believe how well it drives for a car of its size. The suspension feels very planted and potholes and other road imperfections are just not an issue. We took it to Lime Rock last weekend and drove on the same roads we usually drive the 335i on.

A better question would be: "Why have all these fine automobiles to just park them for people to stare at?" Drive those suckers!

So there are 750Li owners that actually drive these themselves? I figured the garage attendant is taking you for rounds in Manhattan.

Congrats on the vehicle and I'm glad to hear it behaves much better on NYC roads. I wonder how a B7 would do...

Thinking of upgrading from Droid 2 to Droid 4. I wouldn't go with droid except I like the keyboard. Anyone, here, use a droid 4? What do you think?

Also, i read it can't be used outside the US...is this correct?

The screen sucks big time. Moto should have put the screen from the RAZR on the D4.

Published specs don't include GSM bands, so use outside of the U.S. is highly doubtful.

BJ, I'm disappointed you're still sporting an out of style family grocery getter. It's cool though. However, when the 4 is released and I don't see a picture of your Rolex collection on the trunk of a brand new 428i, I'll really be disappointed.

Are you making a case yet to BMW NA that you truly should be the first to take delivery of a Platinum PB 428i Cabrio? BFest should have plenty of of content to back up your case. Good luck!

Sonax. Wow!

My son gave me a spray bottle of Sonax wheel cleaner, he said I had to try it. Today I got out my old oem wheels to prep for CtoC4. They had an entire Summer's worth of brake dust on the interior barrel portion and have been stored like that for 8 months.
I sprayed it on, it's a light green. In minutes it had turned red indicating a reaction with iron particles and dust. I softly wiped each with a sponge just to shmear it around a little. I hosed it off.
Words fail to describe how good this product is, you're going to have to try it to believe it. I have just about every wheel cleaner product known to man, and a few known to woman. Sonax is in another category.

The new 8 speed feels like a dual clutch on downshifts. I was very disappointed in the electro-mechanical steering. I like the 335is's steering. I work for BMW of Rockville, here in MD.
