Mein Auto: 750li
About to be 750Li owner!

Ok guys first post and my first BMW!

I've just come over from the UK to Houston and will be working here for a few years. My recent rides have been a Jaguar XJR and lately a Merc CL500. I've always been a bit apathetic towards BMW but given my new situation and 100 mile per day commute, I wanted something that would make the journey a bit more bearable and interesting!

I started doing some research and kept coming back to the 750Li. I narrowed down my search and found "the one" today. A 2007 car with 78k miles and full service history....really nice condition and only 2 owners.

Having had a CL500 before, I'm under no illusions about cost of ownership of such cars! I just love the car....it didn't break the bank and it's been well looked after. My CL500 was 12 years old and still driving beautifully. I've seen a lot of posts describing abject terror at cars with >80k miles. I figure that with all the technology and Engineering in these cars....they should be good for 200k miles plus. I used to use a limo company who were using volvos with 350k miles and they were still going strong. My experience has always been that it's the care, not the miles that's important.

Anyway...will be picking the car up in a week or so and will post an update. Wish me luck!
