Brought home the second wife today.

Picked up my 2013 750lXI today..

Imperial blue with saddle black trim. I love this combo.

Packages; Msport, Executive, Driver Assist.

Initial impressions, a totally different feel to my old 2009LI, more engaging and fast. I just wanted to keep driving.

Dealership tried to sell me the wheel and Tyre package for $2400...what is that about. I thought these packages were $800-900

If you can't find it cheaper elsewhere, pay the $2,400!

I was thinking to upgrade to the 20" and would have purchased the program for them. Right know I have the stock 19" Msport wheels.

Thanks all..

Will get pics by the weekend.

What did they do with the 2013...its a different car. Far exceeds the driving experience of the 2009 model. The 8 speed transmission and extra bhp is overwhelming.

Mein Auto: From BMWs to Porsches
I had 19" stock MSport wheels on my 750ix as well AND the wheel and tire insurance (which cost me $1100 in February 2011). Fortunately, I never had cause to use the insurance while I owned the car. That said, I won't drive a car off a dealer's lot without this insurance. $2400 is way too high in my opinion and I think you can do better...I've always negotiated this cost with the dealer; recently, I got my Porsche dealer to sell me this coverage for $1200, when they had offered it for $1900. However, given that insuance companies pass claim costs off to their customers, the price you were quioted probably reflects the number of wheel/tire claims received from customers in your region. In this connection, I've read countless posts on the 5 Series forum here from owners in the N.Y. and N.J. area regarding damage to wheels and tires on account of poor road conditions. For what it's worth, these policies now cover curb rash in addition to other types of damage. Bottom line: you should try to get it.

By the way your 7 sounds gorgeous, but it's just wrong to post here about a new car and not produce any pictures.
