Hello from the USA,
I just became a member on this forum because I would like to learn what is going on with BMW enthusiasts across the pond. I own what we call a "sleeper", a high performance car that doesn't look as such. It is a black 1997 740iL however I have installed a supercharger and an S6S420G Getrag M5 6-Speed manual transmission. Very fast! If you have a moment to spare, check out my Car Domain web site at http://members.cardomain.com/bimmerhead

Cheers



Simeon &
Baby, The World's Only Supercharged 6-Speed 740iL

Hey Mr Thor!

This is a little taster of what us Brits are getting up to... Enjoy!

P.S. You must have some good stories of how you've scared up other "fast" car drivers at the lights? Come on man, share!!! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src="http://www.2mango.com/Faisal-Beemer-01a.jpg" border=0>

Thanks roofless,

I'm trying my best as i'm sure most of us do when it comes to something they're passionate about. Any of you guys have an opinion on the new breed of BMW being brought to us courtesy of Mr Bangle?

Laters, Fes.

Chris Bangle's creation?.......<img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle>

But I'm told the new 7-series grows on you. I haven't seen enough of them yet for that to happen.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

The only version of the 7 series that I have liked just a little bit is the AC Schnitzer kitted one. The mirrors on it are crap tho.<img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

Even Hamann weren't able to make it look desirable. I won't even mention the CS1 (girl's / hairdresser's car). No offence ladies / hairdressers.

Doubt there are any ladies or hairdressers on this forum Akuba.

Have you paid a visit to the BMW Car forums....see my post "Very Quiet Here!"

Maybe see you there? (I've become a bit of a regular!)

Al, sorry about not geting back to you sooner, had to take the bird to tescos at 12am!, and got beasted by the babylon on the way home (BMW, hooded top, baseball cap, toolbox, big rims and black windows- know what I mean!). How do I post my picture in the signature? this HTML form doesn't like the "attach picture" icon...
Matt- yes the B12 was a 7er and I can't tyyype!
