I leased a 2007 bmw 7 series in aug of 07 and thank god it goes back next aug,,This car has been a nightmare,,Instead of building cars that you can surf the internet in,,Bmw needs to build cars with quality and reliability like for instance electronics that actually work and continue to work and the mecanics of the car with out problems,,,My 7 series is babied and always gets high quality fuel and gets maintence when needed,,Problems Iam having is faulty suspension that makes this 93.000.00 dollar automobile ride like a beat up old chevy and electronics that sometimes work and dont work,,My dealer says they have to see the problem before they can fix it and than they say the car is operating normally and bmw usa themselves dont want to know nothing from nothing,,,I should of leased the lexus,,,

I am so discouraged that BMW cannot square away this *great* automobile. The theory that complexity leads by definition to unreliability seems to have been disproven by Lexus, the latter also replete with many forms of gadgetry (even parking itself).
I just can't understand it--this 7 series has been around a long time. Seems like the X5 has similar headaches.
Maybe they need to start with a completely clean sheet of paper on this model.
Or maybe the dealer network is just not up to the task? But if that's the case, do Lexus dealers pay more for talent?

I am negotiating the price of a 2007 750Li Individual with 24K miles. It has all orions except for AC in the seat. Asking price is $59K. Any suggestions about ball park to aim for?

A private party sale? His price is way high. I'm not sure you can even negotiate at that asking price. I think around $48K--$50K for a beautiful low mileage example from a private party is more than fair, perhaps even generous, and perhaps one could justify a few thousand more for a CPO car with extended warranty from a dealer.

It is too high a price for that model. I bought mine with the same milage for 42000$ and every option in it works like a charm. The price is so high that you may not have any room to negotiate. So good luck, If interested I can give you the name of the dealer I bought it from and he is in Dallas. I have recommended some of my friends and they are very happy with the deals. He is private seller who finds these high end cars and checks them out before he buys.

Thanks for your response. Can I get it for $50K even with Individual Composition? I understand that option was $11K new. Also, this is from a dealership so the price includes CPO which will end in April 2013. Any thoughts about what to shoot for?

The specs are as follows:
Cold weather package
Luxury seating package
Rear entertainment package
Premium sound package
Did you all of these for $42K?

I think 45000 will be tops. If you can get this for this price it will be good deal.

I'm thinkin' $47.5, something like that.
These are hard times and that car is not easy to sell.

Car was delivered from dealership yesterday to our home yesterday. Looks great, especially the Jet Black exterior over Platinum interior with piano black trim and rear entertainment package, night vision etc. Think it has every available option except for seat massage.
The "BMW Individual" door sill is especially exclusive and I also got the CPO with extended maintenance because replacing a brake pad and/or the 20" performance tires will cost more than what I paid for 5 years coverage.
Thanks for your input.
