TBH, you don't really need to win the lottery to afford one of these cars. You can afford them if you have one of the higher paid jobs(100k+ /year). And if you are a doctor of any kind you can buy a couple of them a year.

Over here, a 750li.. Well new, it's a $200k+ car

Used? They drop like rocks

760li's are a $300k car, but even a 2006-2007 model can be had for 100-150k

Where r u frm? over here, 750Li cost u around $350k. Unless u earned a salary of $500k-$1M a year. Otherwise, most rich professionals in Malaysia usually settle with M3 or 740Li.

not sure how much you think doctors make but rest assured 125k cars aren't filling up physician parking lots at hospitals.

having said that....WOW to the indiv 7. amazing colors inside and out. the white interior is gorgeous but would scare the hell out of me. its ok to ask people to leave their shoes outside your house, but for your car too?

Seriously. I felt self conscious sitting in that car thinking I might dirty it up

Absolutely stunning interior though like you said.

I used to say that the S class was better than 7. After some time and really seeing the F01 more and more, its hands down way better looking than the S

The Individual one is sooo sick... So much more aggressive than the AMG S class. It's seriously the best luxury sedan you can buy. I also love what they did with the rear silver trim between the taillights, it really shows the revolution of the 7er from E65 to present.

I am saving every pennies for B7. Hopefully, it will becoming more "affordable" for me in a few years.

If I had that white individual leather, you'd have to be NAKED to get in my car!

I can't understand how people can hate BMW's plain and simple interiors. Steering column, heater (and iDrive) - you just know where everything is. As long as the materials are good, I really don't find the need to have stitching patterns on seats, have hard materials all glossy to have that allusion of quality.

Many (myself included) don't "hate" them. Just a bit underwhelmed, that's all. The quality of the materials is good, but not great, the fit and finish also is good but not great. Moving over from something like Lexus or Audi you feel a bit... downgrading. But after a while you get used to it and just accept it. It is good enough so one can feel comfortable inside and be reasonably happy. But "wow" factor... not so much.

The only thing I don't like about that Individual 7 is the white trim. If that's the ash white grain trim they offer, it could look good with a darker interior which might allow you to see the grain more, but with that already mostly white interior it looks like shiny white plastic up against the white leather. Otherwise it's beautiful
