The Individual selections are not working properly. When you pick the new interior colors the selection does not work and removes the package. The options and packages also do not work properly.

Come on BMW...it's called management of your employees. I know you couldn't get the new dash in time but really...this is just a few clicks of the computer.

The Hybrids are still showing as 2012. And once 2013 rolls out, you won't be able to get a V8 hybrid from BMW anymore.

Mein Auto: F02
I enjoyed leasing as new models 88 735il, 94 740li, 97 740li thinking, enjoying these were excellent driving machines and the electronic tech of the time was not a big influence.
My 2009 F02 was loaded up with options $105.6k MSRP. I purchased the car, thinking I was happy with the new tech of F02 and would drive the car for ten years. Recently sold the car due to changes of technology pending release. My 2k9 F02 was a near zero issue no problem car, quite excellent. As I read new posts on various BMW and other automotive websites about BMW's current line 2012-2013 of new 3er, 6er, 6GC my 2k9 F02 had become outdated with LCI 2013s and pending next gen 2015. New tech and new models are being introduced by BMW at a rapid pace, faster than I can recall. Rapid changes as current new model introduction and pending release technology as iTouch, LCD instruments, engines, voice integration, CRP body panels to name a few. I hoped and planned to wait for the next generation 7er with 2015 model year. I am not sure if LCI satisfies the temporary urge to get a new 7er today. At the minimal wait 6-9 months for the iDriveTouch and refreshed LCD instruments to make it into production. Currently driving something different in my inventory. YRMV, My results varied quicker than anticipated.

Yeah...while I am really bummed about not having LED Corona Rings and no full LED lights (I drove the new 650i with all LEDs, and it is so striking)...I am SO happy to have my V8. I think BMW cancelling the V8 and making the AH7 an I6 is probably the only real comforter I have, about the 2013 coming out!!!

There might be a chance to update the headlamps on the pre LCI models to the LED headlamps according to my friend at BMW but it's going to cost a pretty penny.

Just built one to my liking and it came out to be 131K.

BTW, love the new interior! Anyone see the side bolsters? It's perforated!

I don't understand the thrill behind the led lights, I personally will not be choosing this option on my 2013 7er. I will opt for the sports package instead. The light bulb has worked since Edison invented it and I don't understand why I need to pay $1900 for fancy street lighting.

In my opinion I think the Hybrid has been a loss leader for BMW, having a 450 BHP car (2013 7er) with better fuel efficiency for less than the V8 hybrid is a no brainier.

I think the Midnight Blue color is nearly identical to the "Deep Sea Blue" they used to have, even though the color is obviously different on the website. My E60 is Deep Sea Blue and it's a great color.

Actually had a f10 parked beside in the same color with tan interior, it look pretty nice.
