Up for auction is a beautiful, pampered specimen of what BMW does best - design the perfect performance-minded sedan for the most demanding driver.
If you're looking at this, you already know the standard specs on the 750 Li and how the X-Drive keeps it glued to the roads even during Michigan winters.
What you probably want to know is this:
1) How well was this car serviced?
2) Where was it serviced?
3) Were there ANY issues whatsoever with the vehicle, and how were they resolved?
4) Where was this car driven and parked?
Well, it was always serviced at the dealership for it's short-term ownership. The owners always parked it inside a spacious garage with no other cars around it.
I created what I feel is a very fair reserve price; it is below any other listed for sale with similar miles, and I'd venture to guess this one is in better condition than most.
And, there were NO issues/accidents to report. Period. Please understand this was not a car left in a garage for two years. It is not absolutely showroom new, but it's very, very close. I noticed one ding in a door I couldn't even capture on film, else I would have shown it. It may just be a paint imperfection.
It will come with BOTH keys and the manual, unlike some listed.
If you have any other questions the pictures can't answer, please feel free to email me. Test drives can be arranged. Mechanical inspections are welcome. I understand this isn't a five year old Impala (not that there's ANYTHING wrong with that), but it's going to cost you a little more so I recommend you do your diligence to your own personal satisfaction. All questions will be answered publicly.
If you look at my feedback enough, you'll find I've sold and shipped a few very nice autos. Custom Porsche to Sweden, C6 Vette convertible down south, etc. This vehicle is accurately described, as is everything I have ever listed. That's why I still have a 100% positive feedback score and have been around for well over a decade. Bottom line: you are welcome to personally verify by checking out the car in person, but BID WITH CONFIDENCE!
Thank you for taking the time to check this out. Shipping will be the sole responsibility of the purchaser. The current owner makes no warranties expressed or implied, and the sale shall be termed as is, final sale.
The vehicle may have slightly more miles when purchased since it is still being used.
Happy bidding; I am going to miss this one!

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."

Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
Mini will be kicking off production in the Netherlands, a country that hasn't built a Mini-badged machine since 1966. In honor of this event, BMW Group Classic, the team responsible for all the cars in the BMW Museum, as well as being a spare parts and restoration company in its own right, revived a classic 1959 Austin Seven. That particular car, number 983, was one of the first Minis to be built in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands' JJ Molenaar's Car Companies built 4,000 Austin Sevens and Morris Mini-Minors between 1959 and 1966, although we imagine Dutch Mini production will be much bigger when it starts up again in summer 2014. A five-person team from VDL Nedcar, the group handling production of new Minis, took to the job of restoring the diminutive British car from nose to tail.
The 34-horsepower engine and the transmission were both completely rebuilt, while the door panels were redone by hand. Help from the Mini community aided the VDL Nedcar team in finding authentic replicas or original parts where possible. All told, the new classic Mini is a striking example of what a good restoration can do to a car. The Seven was repainted in its original Farina Gray, adding to the car's sense of authenticity.
There are always growing pains when automakers introduce new technologies. BMW is learning this with the electric powetrain used on the 2011 BMW ActiveE. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about half of the all-electric 1 Series coupes currently in the hands of the public are being recalled for a potential problem that could leave the cars stranded.
With 700 ActiveE models running around the US, 360 of these cars have insufficient sealing between the electric motor and transmission, which could lead to premature wear to the connection between the two, which in turn could result in a loss of propulsion. BMW started notifying affected owners by phone earlier this month.
While no automaker wants a recall on its hands, it's much better for BMW to learn such a lesson now on the low-production, lease-only ActiveE ahead of the car's successor, the BMW i3, which is expected to be a much higher-volume EV. Scroll down for the official recall notification.
