msrp

the "vehicle inquiry report" - which assigns the build only has the msrp numbers. the total for the car above and all the options at msrp (incl 825 destination charge) is $97.820.

Pictures!

Hi Everyone

I just got the car today - there was a slight delay.

The car is terrific - in fact the best 7 Series I have had. In the past, I've had a 1998 740iL, 2002 745, 2006 750i. I also still have a 2008 M5.

This car handles very well in Sport mode and has more than enough power. The delivery of the power is butter smooth and it is fast when the turbos kick in. I am impressed with the quality of the build and the interior is especially nice. I will post more pics soon.

Dark Graphite/Black

Yes, it looks black but it is actually a dark gray color. I love it - seems to be a great color - black at night and like a "gunmetal gray" in the day. I ordered this color sight unseen, but very happy with the choice. I think out side the US it is called Sophistico Gray. More pics to follow - hopefully w a better camera than my Blackberry

Wow. Nice!

The headlight in your first picture looks a little funny. I guess it's because it's blurry and out of focus?!?

Post some more pictures when you get the chance. I would also love to see some interior shots of the black leather... Thanks.

SpotM5: I forgot to ask, how long did it take now from order date to delivery?
And do you know when the car was manufactured (week number) and how long the transportation took?

Time line

From the order to delivery it took 11 weeks. The BMW Owner's Circle infomration is not very accurate and lagged behind about a week or so.

The time the boat docked in Port Hueneme, it too six days to get to a Northern CA dealer.
