Positive Comments

So, having owned some nice corvettes in the past, I have never gotten as many good reactions and positive comments from people, than I do with my 7. I was at Peet's yesterday and had a guy randomly walk up to me and tell me how gorgeous the car was, how it was his "dream" car, and he asked me some random facts about it.

Just curious if anyone else has these positive experiences? Mine typically happen when I'm filling her up with gas (maybe I'm more of a captive audience at that point?? )

I'd also be curious if Deutsch gets any comments on his Rolls?

V/r, Tim

Positive Comments

A kid at school who drove his mothers Scion TC called my car a "chick car"...I just laughed. And laughed. And laughed some more.

Whoops, that's a negative comment ;P

I had a kid about my age in a truck give me a thumbs up one time. Someone at at the Scottsdale Pavillions said "That's a cool looking car." when I drove by.

Same here when I'm pumping gas, usually hear "Nice car" lately I heard it twice a gas station from a gentleman at the next pump "ONE DAY" and he was driving what it looked like to be a 02-05 330i . Told him you got a nice bimmer, he response was I "want a plane like that" lol

I had one guy mistakenly ask me if mine was the new Chrysler 300. I gave him the puzzled look like are you really that stupid.

Now my motorcycle is a real attention whore. Almost every time I stop somewhere, someone will comment on it.

my signature pic is from a BMW high performance driving event, I was running down corvettes, 3's and Porsche's. It is far from a chic car. there was a z06 and an m3 that could run me down, but this thing is shockingly good on a road course!

:thumbsup: Yeah, the only car out there that could be called a chick car would be a Beetle :P.

Someone thought a 7 series was a Chrysler 300?!? Oh lawdy lawdy

there are a lot of classics that might get more attention. you might need to put a big wing on the back of your car from a datonna charger 500. Then you might get the attention, not sure about positive comments, but attention none the less

My neighbor made me roll down my window to tell me that my car was absolutely gorgeous. On another note, I had two older ladies walk up to my 7 at the grocery store mistakenly thinking that it was their car which was a Chevy Impala. Needless to say, I was humbled very quickly.

Ive had people pull up next to me at red lights and try to talk to me about how much they like the car which can be a bit awkward yelling across the car haha. The weirdest thing was probably on the highway a few weeks ago, I was driving and pass this ford station wagon, I get a ways ahead and see in my rear view him flooring it so I'm thinking its somebody wanting a race or something haha. Anyways he pulls up next to me gives me the thumbs up and waves lol. I assume the thumbs up was for the car... lol

Frequently get comments on the car. It's rare to see a blacked out 7, so mine really gets noticed it seems. Nice to have almost 100% track record for getting the front valet spots.

Love your ride man. I am also thinking of putting on a blacked out grill. Did you do it yourself and any idea on cost? I would love to find one somewhere besides BMW, but thats not likely.

Thanks! They do make the grill in flat black from outside sources. However I have nightvision so the grill is different and no one makes an all black version. That means it had to come off and be painted net black to match perfectly. U I drove around grill-less for a few days while it was being done. I assume the story will be the same for the new LCI nightvision grill you will be getting.

Then my girlfriend shouts from the next pump asking me a question and he's like.........you guys are together? I tell him it's my girlfriend and he's like you're on another level......LOL

I get lots of thumbs up from young guys when I'm rolling down the blvd. in town. Once at a gas station, 2 guys in a beater red Pontiac convertible at the other side of my pump were eyeing the car, when the driver says, "Hey, would you be willing to trade that for a Ferrari?" I was LOL!
