GXP_Vince is on a distinguished road
Default The Bimmer

This is the car I bought not to long ago to replace the GXP (about 300$ less a month for a shorter period of time). Very happy with it so far a few things are broken on it, such as the back drivers side window doesnt work the CD player doesnt work and a few other things. But shouldn't be hard to fix. Car is a 95 740iL with 66k on it. The interior is almost spotless. The Driver seat has some wear on it but thats normal. One thing I noticed about this car is that the car is SOLID. I mean everything on it is solid no creeking or flex in the body panels or anything neither one of my other cars were like that. Dont get me wrong I love my bonnevilles
I have always liked the body style of this model.

I was using some wireless flashes but I didnt have the right equipment with me to do it. I am doing more and more wireless flashing because its a whole different world of photography doing that. So you will see more of that from me after I get about 4 weddings out.

tsk tsk...DOF

Nice car Vince, I love the body style on the previous 7 series. Personally the shorter wheel base is preferred for me. How'* it on gas?

I will be getting them maybe tonight (panaramic pic)

I love the interior of it!! Its tan but it goes well with the car. Plus I was always scared of putting stuff on the leather in the GXP because the leather in there was soooo fussy and I wanted to keep it in great shape. The bimmers leather is very durable not as worried as I was with the GXP. Dont get me wrong I loved the interior of the GXP! And would choose it over the BMW.

The gas mileage isnt great getting about 19.1 city and highway. But been in it alot lately so its dropped to about 17.5

I have lots of business meetings and I drive clients around all the time to go to different places for engagement shoots and such, the seating area is HUGH! Its great and everyone comments on it all the time.

By the way DOF is my best friend
