Before today I have never been in a 7. It has got me thinking about getting one. Very nice.

What is the function of the two silver buttons on the steering wheel at I guess about 10 and 2 o'clock? I noticed them on the 7 I was in also. May sound stupid but if those are shift points I am going to get one right away, that would be a beautiful thing to me but I don't think that is what they are. Must be for the radio or phone or some kind of function like that.

Please clue me in.

I'd upgrade my 545 for a 750 I think.

Thanks

yes u can shift with those silver buttons. the 2 on the front are to downshift and the other on the back are to upshift. and yes it does shift right away when you press the shifters.

that's how you shift in manual mode. the buttons on wheel front are for either up or down shifting (can't remember which), and on the back of wheel there are two buttons for opposite. I tried it once and will take getting used to, but seems much better than the way it is for the 550 -- I think the '08 550 offers it now too.

Congrats on a very nice 750i. Oh and that pool looks real nice too.

I also like the color combo of silver and black. The silver in my opinion is the easiest color to maintain and keep clean.

Your new car looks great. That silver / grey is a great color combination. Those 20's also look good. I may get them for mine when my OEM tires need replacing.

Gosh I love that color

There is an individual color that reminds me of your color, its called Ruby-Black
Metallic..

In the daytime it looks like your color and in the night time it looks blackish..originally i wanted to order that for our 760...but there was a significant someone who didnt agree with me at the time so we ended up getting azurite black

Oh sorry btw...congrats on your new vehicle!

You have the 20" sport wheels similar to the 20" M-Cross Spoke wheels we do on our 760

It does make a big difference in terms of handling and high speed performance!
