Tonight Zak, me, and a few others were at the theater, and the parking lot was pretty full, so we pulled around back. We parked and started to walk towards the front and noticed a 760Li sitting right there. Behind the clear side marker there was a small badge saying V12. A BRAND new car. We seriously stayed there for about 20 minutes gawking over it. It was soooo sexy. We ended up writing a note for the owner confessing our love for the car and asking him to visit bmw-forums.com and post. We left it for him under his windshield wiper. Oh, and in the dashboard area he had a nice looking radar dector, V1 or passport maybe, couldn't tell. Meaning he actually uses the beast.

Then as we were getting ready to leave, Zak (EcianIce) crumpled up one of our old drafts for the note and threw at me, missing, and hitting the car. HE HIT THE 760Li!!!!! I move he is banned from the forums.

OH! And mustang boy (Chris, if you guys remember from a while back) was there and even HE admitted he wanted to have sex with it. From a diehard mustang driver, this is an amazing compliment.

LOL...if you think it's nice on the outside wait till you actuatlly drive one of those beasts. I've had the honor of driving a new 760Li...several times now that I think of it. The raw power of the V12 really comes alive when you put the pedal ALL the way down to the floor. Otherwise if you don't...it feels like a regular 745Li....but yeah....nice interior, 13 speakers...comfortable....I love it too. Only costs about $130,000. I've actually followed a 760Li...we were delivering it to a customers house...I was in an 04 325i...and I was having a hard time keeping up.

FYI--Where I live....there are only Two (2) 760Li(s) in a population of around 400,000 people.

Only problem is if I had an extra $130k laying around for a car, I'd probably be driving a 360. Sorry. :P

I saw a guy in my friends building having a 760 Li for the summer and then a BMW X5 DINAN for the winter. The lience plate on the 760Li was 'SMUTKING'

hmmm, i am around Flint, Michigan all the time, i hope none of you have had to go there, around 500,000 people, mostly ghetto , crime and drugs. I have seen 760s all over the place. for 130,000$ i think its a waste of money. im a diehard BMW fan but i just dont think it does anything for me. Maybe if it were under 100K. My friends mom just bought a new white one and all i hear he complain about is how confusing the Idrive system is and how much of a hassle it is to drive the car. just thought i would share that with you all.

Someone around here in Cleveland has a new 760il(03 or 04), jet black looks awesome. To give an idea how rare these cars are, BMW imports around 900 760's a year.

komodo,
what is a 360 and why would you drive that over a brand new 760il?
