A mini-exhibition of Carbon Black with different Interiors...

750 LI - Carbon Black / Black / Fineline Gloss Trim

Obviously, Carbon Black (Dark Blue) is my favorite color

Well, I like the colorful interiors, The Ivory looks outstanding with the Anthracite wood, it's rich and modern looking.

The Saddle has a ton of color and will look different depending on time of day, I like the Light Poplar with the Saddle, tons of color in that car give a warm and luxurious feeling.

The black interior is just all black. No two tone, sort of a business class simple look. I would not choose the fineline gloss wood again, you do not get the wood panel on the hat shelf or the pull handles.

Oddly, my Ivory/Anthracite 750LI is the only car of my 3 to have the wood pull handles.

I like all 3, that's why I ordered them the way I did. Each provides a different experience.

Now if someone would just tell me where to set the tire pressures!
I have it set at factory recommendation, though when I received each car, the tires were much higher than the labels!

Very nice, but why do you have three 7 Series'?

Are there three drivers in your home?

Are there often many passengers, where a 6 Series wouldn't have worked?

At least get one 740, one 750 and one 760. :P

No offense, just saying...

It's just myself. I like the 7 car the best, I've had the 6 and hated it. The 740 is too underpowered and the 760 has a hefty lux / fuel tax. I like the 750 model, it fits me, which is why I chose it

I like three cars, it's a symmetrical balance in my mind and it gives me the interiors I wanted.

There it is

I thought about it, but I've had M cars before and never much needed the extra speed. I like the way the 750 cruises. B7 has a weird instrument cluster, I've gotten used to the new Digital cluster and it really works for me.

What is in my future, in addition to the three sevens, I want to add:
- i8
- Gran Lusso
- 4 Series 435i Convertible

I really hope Gran Lusso becomes a production model, I feel like that is the 7 coupé.

No offence but with the money for 3 couldnt you have got a rollsroyce ghost, same chassis more class and money left over. Still great cars, just my view.

How many drivers are in the house?

Do you store them at different locations (multiple homes)?

Or do you drive one or two hard, while you pamper the other.

Just trying to understand the three...

Agreed, One 7 series works for me, My weekend car is a Lamborghini. To me that makes much more sense....Maybe he uses them for business? (fleet use)

Different strokes for different folks i suppose

Nobody can ever understand the madness of having multiples, but I really like the 7. They're for personal use. I live in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. I like getting into my second or third car and having everything be in the usual places. When you like something really, really well, or shall I say, when I like something REALLY, really well, I buy a few of them with just slight variations.

Don't try to make sense of it, there is no sense to be made of it, just appreciate it
