Hmm... I think you hit the nail on the head: Cohiba is not offered as a part of the "Individual Composition Package" becuase it does not offer a matching Alcantara headliner, as all other colors not offered in the United States do not either. Strange to limit it due to this one, mere limitation!?

So, how many Individual F01/02's have you built to date? Are Individual F03's available? Otherwise, do clients purchase these upfront - as in: pay your dealership ahead of or with the order? In the United States people have the right to place an order, but refuse it upon delivery... not nice. However, not so if a European Delivery order.

don't know exactly... maybe 30 or 40... depends on what is Individual for you. I count only super-customized cars... Yes F03 is also available with Individual and Special Requests.

I have heard about this rule that you can refuse it. but I think this is not something for every customer - BMW offers SR only for those who orders 6th or 7th car in one place and committed about the choice. I think financing is a bigger problem - your bank will have to find another person who'd like to drive a taxi-colored 7er after 2-3 years... In RU most of them had been bought as outright purchasing...

Understood! Not to bother you too much more, but do you have any "M Sport Package" cars with the "Individual Composition Package", so that they have the M Sport front and rear bumpers, M Sport exhaust note, M Sport dead pedal, but everything else BMW Individual, including the wheels and the BMW Individual rear plaque!? I have also noticed that most of your cars are 750's, not 760's. Why, when already spending this much money!?

I am a little lost here. So are you a dealer ? did you do the paint job on the 7 it got here ? Also the interior with the a/c vents in roofliner how were you able to order it in the US. I thought that option is unavailable for the North American markets.

But very cool stuff

No too many activity by US users - there is a question whether I should continue this thread?

Some pictures of short wheel base 750i made for one guy who wanted to combine everything in his car - Citrin black xirallic paintwork, chrome exterior, 3-colored interior, bi-color steering wheel, contrast stitching and so on...

Interesting that he wanted us to make a bicolor steering wheel on the basic on basic one - not sport one 225 option - he told me "you know I like thin steering wheel like in Porsche and yours' are so thick - make a thin one for me" - it was second time we manufactured Individual special steering wheel based on basic steering wheel.

Interior is a crazy mix of Leather Merino Finegrain Cohiba brown and Champagne with Black floor covering and Piano black inlays. as you can see we also made leathered A,B,C-pillars in Cohiba brown Nappa leather while central part of the headliner was made from Champagne alcantara.

One more special thing - contrast shoulder line on the doors and B-pillar - it's made in Champagne, but usually we don't mix the colors there.

Enjoy the pics!

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!!!

Has anyone ever had any of the plastic or metal interior parts replaced with precious metals (i.e.: gold, platinum, pewter, etc.)?

Or what about the addition of granite or precious stone trims, similar to what Mercedes-Benz does with their Designo line:

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/atta...e-thread-1.jpg

How about special matched to sample interior leather colors - we've seen matched to sample exterior paint colors...

We even produced folding tables for that particular car, but as the customer decided to have short wheel base we had to forget about them...

Yeah, sometimes there are some cars with crazy stuff inside - there was X5 with 24-carats gold interior trims and recently we produced the car with black chrome inside instead of all small aluminum parts (like below the wooden trims you know...) - I don't have pictures yet - I'll try to get them. This car also has integrated safe between rear seats

Question

Thank you so much for these pics and insights!!!

I am sure one can choose to get a refridgerated glovebox or some kind of compartment like the E66 760Li's champagne refrigerator in the back?

SUBL1ME: yes that's available on the F01/F02 but I don't think it's available in NA...
It will however take away a portion of your trunk space, just like the additional air conditioner option for the rear requires space from your trunk...

I sell nothing here. Regarding the prices - you should ask local dealer. dark chrome details are not available as spare parts via service. If you already have a car - it's easier to re-spray or foil chrome details...

Rofl

Have you no sympathy or empathy for the time, effort, and money that went into this?

Have you no eye for creativity?

Taxi?

That four letter word is probably the meanest thing you could say!
