15,000 ? I think that's quite an underestimate ;)

I know I know I know I was going to write after it "I'm probably wrong but, meh.."

Well I looked it up, and in 1997, there was a total of 600,000,000 cars in the world.

In 1990, there were 500,000,000, cars, so if you extrapolate those numbers, you can assume a total of 700 million cars? :) on the world TODAY...

I read his question as if he were asking how many different types of cars (models) are there. Don't know why...but that explains why I guessed 15,000.

Took delivery of a jet black 325xi touring. Pretty sweet, I like the iDrive system. Steering is pretty tough, but still cool.

One major complaint. The car manual and other papers (which are contained in a leather pouch) do not fit in the glove box. It is the smallest space I have ever seen...insane

those are the cars currently driving around

that means there's 1 car per 8 people (if you take 6 billion people and 700 million cars)

More like bone and bihus, the first week I thought you two were the same person! :lol:

zenkidori and swek, too, they must have been cloned at birth or something.

I really should get rid of my avatar. Animated GIF's are soooo 2005.

Congradulation.

I've tried the iDrive at an auto show, and did not find it difficult at all, I guess all the journalists who say its too confusing are just a bit dim whent it comes to techno-gadgetry. That's my random thought for the day.

I'd put SL65~AMG~WOWBABY!!!! & Leppy together, if only because you two are the most obvious aussies here! :p

Viper & ESPNSTI

VUK & Graheme(sp? the guy with the cerbera sp12 ava) <--Don't really know why. Maybe it's because they're both from the UK, and the speed12 reminds me of the Viper?

Jos & Haz <--bobble buddies!

mgkdk & catbunny <--both girls who post in OT!

SiR_dude & fbc <--both have their car in their sig!

CanadianLoonie & Berserkercatsplat <--no idea why!

Quite funny: today I realised Shawn 230 and Matt Shaw (sp?) are too different guys :lol:

One of them studies political science and if I remember correctly I joked about it to the wrong guy, my mistake...
