Best Vehicle I've ever owned (duh!)
Pros: Quality fit and finish.
Cons: Somewhat stiff excelerator pedal.Superior fit and finish, very comfortable seats, especially the massaging rear seats. More than enough horsepower (to get you in trouble). And 'all' the luxuries you could ever want in a car. Very quiet ride at all speeds.
Pros: the body style
Cons: ilike everything
Advice: go for it!We took it out on the freeway near the mountains. the acceleration was smooth and speed pick up accurate to video description.
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.
Pros: I would have to say the new V8 engine for the 7 series!
Cons: The navigation system is a little difficult to learn but I am getting the hang of it.
Advice: I recommend this vehicle without reservation.I purchased this vehicle new from North Scottsdale BMW. It is the newest and largest BMW dealership in the United States. The big 7 series has been updated this year with a revised front grill and air vent under the bumper. It is now a smile instead of a frown. The Bangle rear end has been modified and looks alot better. The 4.8 liter V8 from the X5 4.8is has been fitted into the 750Li and now the performance is spectacular. The fit and finish are top notch. The comfort seats, navigation, audiophile system and sport package are first rate. Thumbs way up in my opinion!
Advice: great car worth buyingGREAT!!!
Cons: Voice activated nav
Advice: see noteThe car rides like you would expect from any performance car. Handles great, rides like a dream, accelerates like a sports car. The performance is superb. I like bells and wistles, BMW should get some spies to go to Lexus and alike to get some technology from them. The iDrive - yes it is a pain. The navigation system is too tedious to input data into. The shift bar is too close to the wiper handle and very similar so many times you are wiping your windshield instead of driving. All in all not worth the bucks. ps. you better make sure you got all wanted from the dealer before driving off the lot. BMW does not know you from Adam once you've paid.
