Cool Drum Roll... My F01!

Well gents... All things must come to an end. And my time with my e65 has ended (but I will certainly remain active with that great bunch of guys!) and now the dawn of the F01 begins!

Stats: MINERAL White Metallic over Saddle Brown & Black Nappa - 09' - And when I say clean as fok... If you know me... Then you KNOW it is just that! Because I am one meticulous MF.


Sport pkg - Luxury Seating pkg - HUD - Convenience pkg - Camera pkg - Driver Assist pkg - Heated Steering Wheel

Now then the weather is quite crummy: rainy and overcast now and all weekend. BUT here are at least some shots of the interior and one exterior pic for now.
You know how you can tell if a pre owned car is TRULY in immaculate shape? The INTERIOR! Specifically the DRIVERS side: seat, door, lights panel, A/C vent controls and radio & seat controls.

Case in point...

Drivers Side:







Now from the passengers side/perspective:




Rear:



Spare key


And one dirty poor lighting shot of the exterior


There ya have it. And as you can imagine... If the interior was kept up this fantastic, the exterior is just as nice. Not one dent to be found! Stay tuned for pics once Sunny and detailed to my standards...

I have not looked yet but can someone confirm the ease and exact location of installation in replacing the Angel Eye H8 bulbs?

Thanks!

Nice! Congrats

The interior is just what I want, also (and have it in my 7 as well...)

The only thing I don't get, is the roof spoiler... What's that and why to put such a thing in a limousine-like car???

Takes five minutes to change the bulb. There is a big circular cover right on the top of the headlight. The bulb is in there.

Those seats are in great shape!! I love that color, I think my next will be saddle brown. I think you need to retrofit the combox so you have full functionality. Congrats, awesome ride!!

Txstyle, congrads bro!! Beautiful car. Enjoy in good health. Seems like the season of alpine white e65 owners getting into white f01s!!! Been looking myself, found a gorgeous 750li sport and all options alpine on black. If it was the short wheel base it would be in my garage now. Let me know how you like the upgrade.

Thanks everyone!

First impressions:

The Powa!!!
Love the thicker yet smaller steering wheel!
Stereo
i Drive is significantly better
Interior overall nice upgrade
Brakes feel touchy?

BMW does such a great job in making the 7 drive smaller!

Saddle interior is the best IMHO (but then, I'm biased). Can't believe what great condition the car is in. Great find!

Wow great condition!

I looked on eBay motors just to see some high mileage f01/02s and it seems our leather holds up really well over the years!

Are you planning on keeping the wheels? I saw you said you were going to replace the tires, just curious. My 740 was identical to yours exterior-wise.

Great find
Enjoy it!!
Chris

Chris,

I ALWAYS change out wheels. But I ALWAYS hang on to the stockers just for the very reason in this case. The dealer or 99% of anyone who buys the car next won't care or give a isht about high $$$ aftermarket wheels. Sometimes you sell to a fellow enthusiast but rarely.
So now I will sell my 22" CV1 grab something for this car, stack the factory rims in my garage and roll.

~ Big Marcus

Put the Vossens on the new one. I know the rear offsets are a bit different but on their website the f01 with your eheels look sick. I had the same rims for my e66 but off sets made them sit in.. Wish in would have kept them now that I have my new 7 too. Anyhow congrats. I literally did both angel eyes in less than 10 mins. No bumper removal or taking headlights out to change them!
