BMW F30 3 series taxi

I know they have BMW Taxis all over Europe, but I've never seen one. I was in Las Vegas for the weekend and came across this F30, and just wanted to share the pic!

Wild. I've never seen a BMW taxi in the U.S. either. I'll be a little surprised if anyone here has.

That is cool, thanks for sharing!

I edited your post to host the image on the Bimmerfest server. I got some funky popups from the site where you had it.

Granted, rear seat room will be tighter in an F30 than a Lincoln Town Car, but the F30 should be by no means painful or uncomfortable.

I've been a backseat passenger in a couple F30s (not taxicabs, though), and found overall comfort perfectly adequate.

I wonder if the fare meter is integrated into the iDrive.

I think it is "Ouch!" as in, oh noes, the F30 is being used as a taxi in the US...this is an insult to the marque. This is worse than BMW competing in NASCAR.

Regarding the backseat of my F30, you don't often hear "ouch" quite as much as "oh god, oh yeah, right there...oh god, oh god, oh god!!!!!"
