I hope they give you what you're expecting, I'd love to get an Individual Composition one day, utterly gorgeous interiors. I was drooling over the 760 75th Anniversary's interior, aside from the headrests. Just wish you could get a MSport Individual Good luck man!

I only have driven a '13 528 loaner with the updated turbo 4, and it was more than adequate. It was equivalent to my I6 in my 740 that it never felt underpowered. Though handling wise, the F10s definitely handle better. But you can get a lot of the same options on the 7, on the 5. HUD, Soft Close doors, Power trunk, Adaptive CC, Rear (manual?) Shades, etc

I PM'd you but I figure I'll just share it to give people an idea. 58% residual, 1.3MF, 3k down, 987/mo after taxes. Its pretty reasonable considering a loaded 550 MSport will run you about what 7-800/mo?

That's good payment! My equity on my 750LI is so upside down in little over 11 months, and I will never do a purchase again.

Welcome to the V8 club. That's a good lease payment. I'd like to ditch my current lease early and jump in one of the new ones while the residuals are so good, but since it was in an accident the trade-in value would suck. Going to just have to ride it out.

That's an amazing lease! I'm curious why you still had to put money down, with all the trouble and issues BMW didn't pick that up?

Wow, that's a unreal lease payment for a 7 series.

Up here in Canada you're looking at $1300/month before taxes with $10,000 down over 36 months and did I mention you have to fork out $20,000 upon delivery.

I received ALL the money (including down payment) back when BMW lemoned my 2012 740, no usage fee either! I figured I would put the money I put down on my 740, down on this one, and then 1k out of pocket (typical they want the first months payment) so it was very reasonable, and I pocketed the balance of that refund check.

Congrats Chris, car looks awesome. This combo will most likely be my next move.

Ignore the 3 post troll.

Great color combo congrats! I am considering ordering exact car like yours through ED program. Enjoy your beautiful car in good health. BTW did you do 10K or 12K lease?

Thanks!

How do all of you Alpina White owners feel about Mineral White? I know Mineral isn't available with the Sport Package, but was wondering if anyone would have preferred that had it been available. Seems like it might be lower maintenance than alpine white.

Having one of each (7 is Alpine, 6 Mineral)... The Alpine white is definitely lower maintenance and easier to touch up! Both are great colors... Just depends on your taste and shape of the car! My fiancee liked the red interior better with the Mineral White, but Alpine White is such a nice clean color!

I had the alpine white and personally think it is the nicest color for the 7 with the sport package, shows the lines well. The mineral to me feels a little Escalady, lots of them around here.

Awesome car, Chris. Perfectly speced. The Alpine White with M-sport and LED's looks phenomenal.

It's already happened. For that reason the rule of thumb with BMWs is lease new and purchase used.

I think both Alpine white and Mineral white both look great. I like my mineral white when the sun hits it just right. Color looks amazing and I have black Nappa interior as well. Looked all over for this combo before purchasing and love a white car with black int!

I am Individual Brilliant white which is very close to mineral white. I would choose Alpine white next time. The pearl shows dirt more than pure white.
