After about six weeks of searching for a 750i with the right options, but no sport package, I finally found the one. It was in Cincinnati at the BMW dealer on the north end of town. It's a CPO with 21K miles, sterling gray / black. After having it inspected, I was going to just have it shipped home to Colorado. But after seeing it and driving it, I thought, "What a missed opportunity if you have it shipped back. Just cancel your plans for tomorrow and drive it home." Talk about a great drive. And talk about a car that could get you in serious trouble with the law!!! A slight touch of the "go pedal" and you're at triple-digits with no fuss, no noise, etc. Thankfully I didn't have any brushes with the law, though highway patrol officers tailed me a few times to read the out-of-state temporary license tag.

I would post some photos, but it is snowing here today - and it still has the 19" Pirelli sport tires on it. The new, all-season tires I ordered will be here next week. Not that it will see a lot of snow - that's what the Jeep is for. But I would like to go forward instead of sideways should I get caught in an storm that wasn't forecast.

I will post some photos when I get the opportunity to get some nice shots.

And by the way, 20 hours in this car was the perfect way to learn i-Drive. It was like a foreign-language immersion course; you had to learn the language to survive. Now, after learning it, I see that there was a logic to the software design. No, it's not entirely intuitive until you learn that logic. But it works nicely once you figure out what the software designers were thinking. Until I figured that out... I will admit to being thankful that the 07s have the leather pad on the i-Drive controller. It saved me from breaking my hand when I was pounding my fist on it in complete frustration. :)

Hey Professor, welcome aboard! Glad to hear about the new 7er. You will have to post some pictures of your new toy when you get a chance to get some. Sterling Grey is a beautiful color on the 7-series.

Congrats and welcome. if it snows in your area, then this car should be put on snow tires not all season tires.

It'll only see snow if it's by complete accident. The two sport utes in the garage will see to that.
