Hey Guys,

Just wanted to say hello, and introduce the new vehicle. Previous car was a modified Lexus GS400, and I can truly say that the 7 is a altogether different animal. One of the most surprising things was the handling prowess bone stock!

It's also odd the amount of attention this car generates (kind of like "who is that in there" type looks). I think this car gets the same attention bone stock that the Lexus got with 20" forged wheels, coilovers, exhaust, aerokit, etc etc

The basic stats on the car are:


BMW 745LI
ALPINE WHITE / SAND
CONVENIENCE PACKAGE
LUXURY SEATING
PDC

The vehicle is truly impressive, I picked it up from HABBERSTAD BMW, Long Island, NY about 1 month ago. Certified Preowned, Ext warranty AND maintenence :thumbup: lol

If you have seen one stock car you have seen them all, so here's a few quick shots for reference. There are a host of mods planned for the car, so I look forward to sharing, as well as witnessing other modified vehicles taking shape!

Have a good one guys!

-Derrick

Its a late production 02 (thats why its still under the original maintence program). Already had the software update, DVD Nav, etc etc

Yeah I searched High and low for Alpine white and was very pleased to find such a clean one! Trust me white is rare in Canada and everywhere else!!

I have a home in South Jersey (Burlington) and a apartment in Upstate NY (Nyack). My 7er is registered in NY and my 6er in NJ.

So what do you do if you do not mind sharing? You can PM the details if you like.

Hey D2,

Just picked up my 02 745 yesterday and wondering the details on upgrading the nav to DVD. Did you update the LCD Screen as well? I checked out you 745 project, the car looks great.

D2/Ed,

Also have an '02 745Li and was curious about the upgrade on the navigation and any other items that might be part of maintenance.

Does the upgrade come with maintenance?

a search on this forum would turn up more comprehensive info, but the software update covers a plethora of functions from the navigation to the radio etc etc
