  • Question for comments. I am about to buy a 750LI tomorrow and I am trying to decide what rims to buy. I am looking at the 22inch 5 spoke chrome- but I wonder it that's a little over the top- does anyone have any pics on theold 740s with that size rims?

    My car is being produced as per the BMW website. It's exciting and cool that the order can be tracked. Guess I'll be one of the first driving this new 7. I bet this car is gonna be a lot of fun and turn a lot of heads. 360hp, ultra-luxury, lots of gadgets, nice color combo, comfort access... Oh yeah baby....it's definitely on!

    Has anyone seen the advertisement on the new 750Li.. It's cool.. The message might mean the new 750LI is like a diamond in the ruff...

    Hello.

    We just picked up our new 750Li a few days ago. Pretty much figured everything out, except this: there is a message on the display screen that says "Phone Conncected?". We do not have any cell phone installed. Any way to turn this message off? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Seems to be wonderful car so far!

    Thanks,

    Bob

    On Tuesday I ordered the following

    2006 750Li
    Convenience package
    Luxury seating package
    Rear Entertainmet package
    Premium Sound Package
    19" star spoke whheel and tires

    Total MSRP $82,945
    I paid : $79,645
    I got a nice $3,300 off

    I had the deal agreed to by 3 dealers. Just wanted ti kow if that is a good deal or not. definately not like buyin a Dodge or something like that, they seem very tight to budge on these high end cars.

    If you are in Southern California, And are looking for the same or similar I can directt you to where I went , if $3,300 off is good.

    I was told it will take 1.5 month to 3 months for the car to arrive from order to deliver.

    Does any one out there know if that is the norm.

    Thanks
    Let me know

    Congrads,
    That is a sweet deal, I would like to get one myself with this price. How did you get this deal. The dealer I saw told me that currently there is no way they can give any discounts. I live in S.cal, please let me know.
    I know that it takes 6-8 weeks for a car to get here from europe. Do you mind telling us what is the color on you new 7er.

    Thanks

    Hello all,
    There's definitely excitement about this car and dealers aren't bending over backwards to get you in one. But who cares about a discount.. I just got mine (Black Sapphire 750Li) and its really cool. The car is a really nice ride and its got real road presence. I just can't drive it enough. For all the potential buyers.. expect to wait 2-3 months to get one (as I did) since there aren't many extra ones laying around dealer lots. In fact my substantially large dealer didn't even have one on display in their showroom. They said all the 750's that are coming in are already sold and the only way to get one currently is to order it as desired and wait.. But let me tell you its worth the wait and even the extra dough.. Shop around a little and then get to ordering. The waiting can be the hardest part of getting into one of these babies.

    In response to other posts my car also says "Phone Connected?".. Dealer couldn't hook up my verizon bluetooth phone (motorola v710) and says verizon probably needs to update the phone software. I'll stop by verizon ASAP and let you guys know if they provided the fix.

    Follow up..

    Got my motorola v710 phone a software update through verizon wireless and now the bluetooth in the car works fine. It seems like a pretty cool option in this car. Also seems like this is a common problem with this verizon bluetooth phone since the verizon tech staff was well aware of the issue. They kept the phone for an hour for the need software upgrade, so be prepared to wait...

    I have pretty good experience with Costco autobuy program. I was able to get mine on May 5th and dealer offered $3000 off MSRP of $85K. The sweet thing was I did not have to wait (selection was limited through). I am in Southern California.

    Haven't figure out how to have my nextel phone work with the built-in bluetooth one.
  • The new 750Li makes my 2001 750iL feel like a piece of junk. it rides very quietly, nothing raddles, it is quicker, though the power comes at different stages of the acceleration.one tip for you gus buying the car, BMW financial allowsyou to purchse as many miles as you want on a leaseat 16/mile up to 9 months before lease end. so I got a 10,000 mile/year lease and will buy more miles if necessary. the leasesuggests 25c per mile at lease end.... also I joined the BMW club to get a $1500 discount rebate for a 7 series, this discount is only good if you were a current member for over a year, so it will be good for my next car (if I will not buy the new 2007 S class with 383 horse power.

    I just bought a brand new 04' 760li through a BMW dealership that has only 55 miles on the car. The car equipped with a cellular phone, I believe is either a V700 or V710 Motorola phone ( phone is being ordered) do you know if there is a way to modify the current cellular phone to any type of blue tooth phone. I would like the service to be Cingular. Do you know the dealers able to provide this type of phone upgrade.

    Thank you in advance for your advices.

  • Let me guess, you bought a black on black 760Li from Century West BMW, they were stuck with one for over one year, I hope you paid less than $90,000 out the door.

    Re phone, at time of purchase they should have asked you who the service provider is and give you a matched phone.
    t is not possible to have blue tooth technology in a 2004 7 series.
    Enjoy the car it is a great car.
  • I am not sure how many of you new 750Li owners know that this car now supports MP3 CDs, you can almost fit 250 songs sorted by title and organized in folders on ONE CD. the car accepts 6 CDS so you can fit almost 1500 songs.
    The best way to organize the CDs is to name all the files by song name only, and put them in folders named by the Author, so you can go to the Rick Marting folder and see all his songs for example (bad choice perhaps...)
    This is cool, and it is a feature that most dealers do not know about and will not talk about.

    I placed an order for a new 7er on Monday 6/27/05 and so far haven't gotten my production number and I want to know how long does it take to get a production number. Also, how long does it take till the car reach the dealership. The sale person told me that it will take 6-7weeks.

    Thank you
  • The boat ride takes 3 weeks, it takes about one week to schedule your car on a boat and it takes about a week at the vehicle preperation center. so 5 weeks to get here from the time they are done making the car. you can ask your dealer what day they are making the car, as it takes one day to make one (it takes 17 hours to make a 3 series, so perhaps a liitle more to make a 7) I would say that your sales person gave you a good ball park figure, you get a production number from your sales person, his sheet will show it once the car is in production, and they print this sheet every day.
    Congratulations what color did you get? what features did you select ?

    Just getting ready to buy the 2006 750i. Have 2 questions

    - Has anyone been able to get a discount to MSRP? How much? I'm in the NJ area.
    - Anyone own the blue lava leather seats? Like it?

    Any comments on the above would be helpful. Thx

    Yes, I got $2500 off , but i might got this because I ordered my car. If you have the luxury seating package it doesn't matter what color, they will feel great. Let me know what are the specs on the car and I will be able to give you a good estimate on how much off you can get. I also recommend that you go to a big BMW dealer if you want a good discount.
    Good luck

    Thx for your response

    My specs are the following

    2006 750i - Black Sapphire Metallic
    Black or Lava blue Pearl Leather
    Sport Package
    Premium sound
    Heated front seats
    Heated Steering

    MSRP - $76,794

    How much do you think I can get off of MSRP? Thx for your help.
  • draqdraq Posts: 18
    I would say you should expect $1000-1500 discount since the margin of profit is low. If your car is loaded with luxury seating, convenience package and comfort access you might be able to get $2K off easily. However, that doesn't mean you should not try to squeeze whatever you can off. I will shop around and try to get a quote on paper and take it with you to other dealers and see if they can offer you a better value. Also be aware of the " there is little 7ers to go around" business, there is always enough.
    good luck
