After a very long time, there is sensibly priced super luxury car. Considering that the 740iL Msport is just 2.5L cheaper, the goodies offered in the individual are certainly worth 2% more.

I hope MBIL takes some ques from this and launches the CKD new S at a similar sensible pricing.

I am clearly not the target segment for this, but I absolutely don't like the "Individual" badging everywhere. Looks like an aftermarket fitment, especially on the seat headrest. But strange are the ways of the rich. They may know better.

Yawn!

Looks exactly same as it's predecessor. What components go with M sports addition apart from larger vents and dual exhaust? They have not even given the M brake pads which are bigger rotors and discs in M version. Basically, some cosmetic badging which is also not sufficient to distinguish it from a regular 740 Li.

I agree that individual badging looks so aftermarket. However, pricing seems quite good.

Here in the US, I spot a 7-series once in a while and they look so ordinary compared to Mercedes which look like a luxury car.

If I am not wrong, S560 is a competitor to 740 and a neighbor bought a brand new one last week. It looks brilliant in the flesh compared to a 7-series (Let me see if I can share a picture on that car here).

In my opinion, in this segment it's hard to beat a Merc.

I believe the Individual badges are just placeholders - buyers should be able to customize these elements with their desired design or text, as mentioned in the original post (highlighted in bold).

@TusharK - Just a suggestion - perhaps it'd be better if the car's name in the thread title were changed to 'BMW Individual 740Li M Sport Edition', to distinguish it from the regular M Sport variant.
