Pros: Hands fee phone, the i drive, leather heated seats, etc . Living the dream!
Advice: Drive the machine.I had a 2005 535i BMW and it was a wonderful car to drive. I now drive a new 2007 BMW 750I. The 535i turns you on; the 7 takes you where you have never been before! What an incredible machine,the rush is almost to much to handle. This automobile is a wolf in sheep clothing this in one badd responsive machine. Everything the pros say is true,agile,smooth,quiet,a head turner. Where ever I have been people stop and admire the car. At the light I get a thumbs up sign. The ladies are crazy about it. Every inch of this machine is outstanding.
Pros: Active Roll Stabilization - always flat through the corners!
Cons: Driver's seat massage - feels goofy.
Advice: Shop and push hard for a deal until Spring 09 when the next version arrives.This is my 4th BMW with a Lexus, Volvo, & Jeep thrown in as well. I must say it has exceeded my expectations. I bought it for business, especially for the quiet cabin and handsfree bluetooth phone for calls on the run - excellent - sounds like I'm on the handset of a land line! iDrive is a terrific interface, but I'm an industrial design/software guy - sorry if you're technologically challenged. Power, audio features, comfort seats, and active roll stabilization make this the driver's luxury car. I'll probably always buy them in the future.
