New owner here, any advice, recommendations or suggestions?

Hello all my name is William and I just purchased the last build slot for the 2013 7series. I ordered a 740 LI alpine white with ivory and nappa leather. So with that being said what advice or recommendations do you guys have for a new owner? My previous car is a 2010 Chevy Camaro 2SSRS tuned with 484hp with 22" Vossen CV-1.

Tuned Camaro to a 740? If you got the 750 with the Dinan flash it would out perform your Camaro.

Going to be quite a step-down from a tuned camaro to a 740i, it's not exactly the most powerful engine. Did you keep the vossens? They might fit the f01.

Btw I see you're in Germany as well, military?

Fellow contractor here. Nice choice in cars by the way. Only thing I regret is not getting the BnO sound system but Ive heard mixed reviews on it. Just curious, when you went to look at the cars did you get a chance to listen to the stereo system? I have the premium and Im curious if its any good?
I think the tint is the way to go. I didnt know you couldnt tint the front windows in Germany. When I was there I had front tint and never got stopped for it but it was about 35% so it wasnt that dark. I plan on tinting the 7 when it gets here as well. Actually, I plan on having it done there before they ship it to me.

Maybe you got lucky didn't drive around much. It's absolutely forbidden to have tinted (foil) front windows and if they pull you over you not only pay the fine (around 100 euro) but also can't drive the car anymore until you either pull the tint off or have the car towed.
