Advice on a 7-Series purchase

Hi guys,

I lurked around on here a little bit this afternoon just to see if I could educate myself as I am considering the purchase of a 2007 750i. I have heard of and read up on the coolant pipe o-ring failure and feel confident that I could handle that repair. I am actually a DIY'er and competent enough to handle most things as long as it is not rebuilding an entire engine or doing body work. Anyways, I found a nice 7-series locally that I may consider going to look at. Apparently it is CPO and has service records. I checked the KBB on it and was floored that the car is priced so cheap. What's everyone's opinion on the car? Is there anything SPECIFICALLY that I should look for? I know everyone says make sure it has records and test everything, but beyond that is a good test drive going give me what I need to know? Thanks for all of the help in advance. Looks like a really nice forum of enthusiasts that I would like to be a part of. I have always admired BMW's, but have not owned one yet.
