New Owner! 09 750Li

I have been in an E66 for the better part of the past 5 years and recently totalled my 2007 750 LI Individual. I was bummed but got good money for the car so not that bad. New car is a 2009 750 Li, Mineral White with black interior. Cold weather, comfort, and camera packages. Stock chrome wheels and already tinted. Car has 37,xxx miles and is CPO'd with the 100k maintenance warranty. Car getting delivered on Saturday and I am super stoked Pics to come this weekend!

Someone pulled out in front of me on the way to the gym.... Was doing 45mph and barely had time to swirve and miss tboning him in the drivers side door. Everyone was ok. Gave me $27500 for mine. Had 90,000 miles on it but got good value for the individual package

Very nice. I just recently switched to the F01 from a E65. I saw a nice one in Cincinnati advertised. Is this where you picked it up?

Picked mine up in Birmingham, Alabama. It definitely turned a negative into a positive getting a new one. Never get excited about cars, since I have had 33 now, but super excited about this one

Congrats on the new car. It's beautiful.
Most importantly, glad no one was injured.
$27,500 is not a bad take for a 90k car.
Getting a newer model definitely takes some of the sting away.

Car looks great. Did you get a PPI? Donohoo deals in dealer buy backs. Might not be a problem but definitely want to find out why and if BMW bought the car back.

Got my car late last night and absolutely love it!! Didn't realize the rims were black chrome but love the look. Car is pristine! Only thing I have noticed is there is drone from the exhaust. It's almost as loud as my magnaflo on my old 7. Not sure if it's normal but very happy with my purchase!
*I know the weathermats looks bad but they are from my old cat and we have had a bad winter so far. Just happy they worked in the new one

Congrats on the new 7. You individual was really nice, but I love the mineral white. Really like the finish on the wheels as well.

So I have noticed a throaty drone on the exhaust and looked at it just now and it had an aftermarket exhaust. It's painted black so I can't tell but may be flow masters. Sounds like my buddy's Bently. Not loud just throaty

Yes. The dealer said it was taken back 3 times for the same thing and it was the only issue the car has ever had other than routine maintenance... When they do the buy back they include the 100k maintenance warranty for peace of mind.

Congrats my man. ALWAYS nice to get into a new (previously owned or not!) whip.

Enjoy in good health.
