Mechanics such as engine/trans response
is great. The breaking is also great.
The radio had be replace three times.
he sound quality is not what I
expected. The Lexus 450 which I've
heard and my S500 have a far superior
system for the money. Frankly, the I
drive is not good. Ease and function is
poor. The tilt/telscoping wheel could
come out further and down. Mercedes has
a much more comfortable seat but the
beamer is a rockect. Some of the
interior features are "cheap" for the
money. Much better in the cadillac,
lexus and acura. BMW should take some
hints from them. Overall interior look
is very nice compared to other models
in the same catagory.
Like a rocket. Disengage the DSC,
smoke the tires and away you go. What
a rush. Almost no brake fade in
corners. Excellent to drive!
Interior comfort could be improved.
Update interior lights especially on
sun visors. Mabe a wood steering wheel.
Improve the radio sound. Improve the
After reading all of the material I
could get my hands on I bought what I
thought was the ultimate car. After
owning the car I realized I had made

shadow its performance stats in the
major car magazines as the only lows
they could find.
Quick Acceleration, Navigation, Voice
Command. 19" wheel that I did not have
to buy after market.
This car outdoes my 2 old 750s in
pract. every way, thank goodness to BMW
for keeping the big, muscular look with
the new 7 as opposed to Mercedes
narrowing the new S so that it looks
cheap with the standard 16 & 17 wheels
and still does front & rear even with
the sport pack. thats why i no longer
own any 600s. ill admit the trunk did
take a little getting used to though.
I-Drive, 19" wheels, Sunshades, Xenon
Angel Eyes, Comfort seats
(AC,Heat,Massage) with articulating
backrest is perfect for taller people,
power close doors and trunk, Big, Bold,
dont make it so fun to drive so i'll
drive some of my other cars more, a
power closing cover to moonroof instead
of manual (like the new 6 series),
steptronic instead of just downshift
