Info needed re: 2007-2008 750i

A friend is in the market for a CPO 750i and is looking for advice. What can you guys tell me to pass along? The good, the bad, the ugly. What are the main bugaboos with this model/year? What to look out for? Let's have it!

Thanks!

Asked a friend for ya...his is '08, still under warranty and averages 8-10k miles annually on NYC metro roads. He's had zero issues and has only been in for usual service and a recent brake vacuum pump recall.

IMO, CPO is a good idea but i'd still get a second opinion of the vehicles condition, elsewhere.

Hey Kev...

I'll ask my brother and get back to you. I don't remember him having any issues with his '08, and he's on the other boards so he might have some info. Hope all is well.

Kev, I spoke with my tech...word is the car is solid. I can speak for the motor and it's great. I think the iDrive changed in 08. I would say just inform your friend to check the software updates on the iDrive...........Phil

Kev - my brother said of all the 7s he's had, the '08 by far was the least trouble. He had no issues whatsoever. Unless you count tires and rims Gotta love tire insurance.
