So long, always enjoyed this forum

A few weeks ago I totalled my 07 individual 7 when someone pulled out in front of me when I was doing about 40mph. Everyone was fine but I lost my ride and never had one issue with it. Had 90,000 miles and insurance gave me $27500 for it. I just took delivery of my 09 750li and I couldn't be happier. 38k miles, mineral white with black interior. Car rides amazing and the power is unbelievable but very snooth I didn't know that the car had an exhaust on it when I bought it and the dealer didn't know either but has the drone of a Bently. Sounds great but not loud at all. Anyhow, I have been on this board over 5 years and enjoyed getting to know everyone. I'll still come by to check out conversations and etc. Take it easy! Here are some pics of my wrecked 7, the totalled s10, and my new 7

Now that there is a real beauty, congrats ol' bud.

Can't help but notice - your cup in the cup holder looks like it's obstructing view and reach , blocking it all.

Funny how before I bought my Benz (S class) I thought it looked so new, and nice, and then I see the newer one (current one, which is one model below mine) and it looks old to me, well I have always considered the E65 the one car I wanted to most.. I really wanted one when I boght my S but I found a great S for dirt cheap and had to jump on it.. anyway, the E65 looked current and new no matter what I said, and now, after seeing these new ones, ours look so old and outdated

How do the materials in your new 7 feel compared to the ones in your Individual?

The leather was different but I never really noticed when I got the individual from my old 745 to be truthful. I do miss the look of the suede headliner. Everything else was looks: piano trim, azurite black (color was amazing) but before I got that, I always wanted a white with black interior 7.
