2011 BMW 740i

Does anyone know why we dont have BMW 740i/Li?

I assuming its just the engine difference, so it shouldn't be a problem importing from US as well?

Thanks for your inputs

as far as i know only the 750 comes in Li, that was the case with the e38 models, but i know the 2000 era 7 series had both 750 and 760 in Li

There are no leather on the dashboard in a 740i unless you option it.
Also, it is dakota, not nappa leather.

No problem importing, however I wonder how the warranty will work considering there is no 740i in Canada.

Wait for the Facelift version to come out this month so the price will decrease more.

Service is an issue, worse case I will drive to Seattle or Bellevue for maintenance.

Thanks for ur input. I will try and wait to see how the facelift will do to the price.
