Itís amazing. Good Pictures to follow soon.

Black sapphire metallic and black inside.

The ride is amazing. Power is amazing. Quietness is amazing. Comfort is superb. Tech is out-of-this-world amazing.

The menus are a bit overwhelming - but I will learn them soon enough.

Digital key plus is awesome. Voice assistant is finally worth using vs. using it in the older, recent bmw models.

Theater screen set up with Att was easy. The rear exec loung is comfy and unique.

The sound system plus the 4d seat bass boosters are too cool.

Auto opening and closing doors only took 10 minutes to get used to and now theyíre awesome.

I donít like the extra huge size of the bmw roundel on the trunk - itís obnoxiously big imho.

More later as well as pics.

I placed a pre-order in April 2022, and still havenít received my vehicle. There is a back log of custom ordered units. But if you are patient and look nationwide there is an inventory for i7 at MSRP/slightly below MSRP because the price of all EVs (new and used) are in a free fall. There was a great WSJ talking about this recently. As luxurious as the i7 is, the EV tech is already a dinosaur compared to its peers (800V architecture in Porsche, Audi). IMHO, the 760xi will have a higher re-sale value in two years compared to i7 because as the WSJ article says battery tech is increasing at an exponential rate and supply costs are falling due to economies of scale for these batteries.

To the OP, happy to see you received your i7, definitely one of the first to get a custom ordered vehicle. Definitely jealous - mine is in production at the moment. Enjoy your vehicle in good health.

Congrats! Not and I7 question, but a Sewell one, lol! Ordered an Ď24 X6 from Grapevine location that should get here in April or May. I noticed that you donít have the chrome Sewell badging on the back. Did you ask them beforehand not to put it on there? I typically debadge or replaced with black badging, and would be great if itís not on there to begin with. 1st time purchasing through Sewell, so donít know what point they add their badging.

I always say not to put it on - and if they do, itís easy and fast for them to remove it. Whoís your sales guy - Bryan?

Great! Will be sure to let them know. Working with Rob. Recommended by a friend that worked with him on his recent M4 and a few past purchases.

When the rear screen is down, how does the rear view mirror operate? Cameras?

Congratulations!

Based on my time with one, I'd be surprised if this car isn't a smash hit for BMW. No idea why someone would buy a Model S instead of this.

I recommend getting a blacked out BMW roundel and making the blue circle around it also black so it'll be masked with the car and not look as big.

Model S is way cheaper? Even the Plaid let alone the Long Range version.
