    What do you do if you find a bassist staggering around your yard at 3AM?
    Shoot him again.

    Remember:
    It only takes a $500 car to carry the $20,000 worth of equipment 500 miles to the gig that pays $100 !!!

    Just a USB socket and 3 apps. :cool: No jack plate, not even a jack or a spare. It has run-flat tyres like the previous version.

    On another note, it's interesting applying for finance when you're 70 years old and you work in the music industry. :eek:

    I'd imagine you're a better credit risk than this guy;)

    Well, maybe a better insurance risk at least...

    I don't know. I bet most banks would approve a 30 year mortgage for KR. But maybe not, since he probably has cash on hand.

    That's a nice ride dude. Personally considering a more modest car for.my next - can't help but see several custom shoo guitars when I look at fancy cars. Of course, if I had a collection like yours, that would matter a lot less.

    Enjoy and crush all the little people that get in your way!

    Thanks, Henry. This is the entry level BMW SUV, so I'm really only driving the BMW "Electromatic" or "Streamliner"! :) The BMW "Pro-lines" had eye-watering price tags! :eek:

    Well, you know where I am if you need to downsize a Jr or a 460 ;-)

    Seriously though, nice ride and congratulations!

    My wife works at a large auto dealership---Chevy and BMW. Some Beemer owners have actually thought that they were entitled to free oil changes and such, and free new tires. They're wired differently.

    I actually got a deal for free servicing, including oil changes and filters, for 5 years or 50,000 miles whichever comes first. Tyre replacements, however, is at my expense.
