there's a doctor who always used to park his Scag on or around Park Ave, and it did sound great in person. Looked really bland though.

I am a fan of the Mulsanne for sure. Beautiful car. Very regal, definitely baller.

in the "cars i can't drive" subcategory, the 330ci has gone and thrown all its toys out of the pram. in the last 6 months, i've gotten a bad camshaft sensor, bushings, shock absorbers and brakes/rotors. plus had to replace the passenger door because of a little stop sign incident with some bitch who doesn't know what a stop sign is. now it has a dead battery for sure and maybe (hopefully not) an alternator problem.

i think i've spent more on fixes in the last 6 months than the car may be worth, although the new door was covered by the cunt's insurance.

did the warranty cover the problems?

Right when the 612 came out there was a really fucking nice one rolling down la cienega in LA dropped on good wheels. To date have not seen a nicer one I love that car.

Brooklands is my favorite big daddy couple, if I had one I'd get a CGT LOL license plate.

I saw one in NY up around there, like silver or maybe Grigio Ingrid. I was thinking of that one when I posted that, actually. haha. My neighbor has a Scag in dark grey, always looks cool driving down the road, especially at dusk when the scalloping on the sides comes through. That car definitely needs nice 20"s though, the OEM wheels always look piddly on such a large car.
The 612 is a good used deal now, it's basically a mild version of a 599 with 4 seats and they're cheaper than 430's. I think one would actually get a ton of use out of it too, compared to a 2-seater. Cars like that make more and more sense to me nowadays.

Saw a 745Li as a normal taxi here today. Amongst the nicer privately-owned cabs, I've seen an old S55, a couple new E-classes, a new E class wagon, see LS460's all the time, but never a BMW.

99% of all taxis here are merc diesel and have been for the last 30 or so years, although within the last couple of years, they have started using VAG and BMW more and more.

Now do to new tax regulations, (the taxi firms now have to pay tax for cars worth over 70k$), they have started switching to Skoda Superbs, as the new go to car.

Best cab I've rode in recently was actually a Ssangyong, in Korea, lol. It is a stretched version of some old Mercedes E or S class with an ugly Mercedes-esque knockoff exterior - except the one I rode in was the stretch model and had like 4' of legroom in the back for the chairs to recline and everything, it was like an Oriental Maybach basically. Best part was that I was staying at this hotel and since there's two tiers of cabs in Korea (regular and deluxe, which was this car was) - the same car and driver kept resting in front of my hotel for fares and I rode in his car like 3 times, and even the deluxe fares in Korea are dirt cheap compared to Japan. I rode across town for like $10USD in this car.

Yeah it might've been the same one I saw in Midtown, don't even remember where I saw it exactly but it was parked at the front of a parking garage with cones around it. Same one?

I was surprised to see a few 750Li taxis in Munich last week. I'd seen 5-series aplenty on previous trips, and C, E, and S MB's, but never a 7.

Was it an F02? I saw several E66 there some years ago.

During another visit I saw some GT535d. A horrible car to look at but it is nice once you made it inside...
