    Back in 2000 BMW offered the 750IL Protection, which was bullet proof. I drove one once, and it was an absolute tank!

    With daily attempts on my life by bad L.A. drivers texting, putting on make-up, eating breakfast, lunch and/or dinner while driving, waving their hands widely while on the phone, driving cars held together by duct tape (my personal favorite) etc., this is exactly what I need.

    I read, or was told years ago, that the Z8 brakes were off the armored 7 series.

    A friend has one. He bought it at an auction. The windows are about 2 inches thick. Yes, a tank is an apt description
