I think this is a close as it gets! This is my 4th 7 since 1985, they keep getting better. My last 745i 02 was crap and couldn't wait to get rid of it. This V-12 flies and get great mileage for such a huge G-force power plant. This 7 never breaks & the dealer gives me a free 7 loaner when I go for regular maintenance. The iDrive is the best part and I feel like I'm on the couch when driving. I can't wait for the new 2009 models and style with power plant improvements. I have the 100K extended warranty and only pay tires. I get looks all the time with black on black with black tinted windows. Thanks BMW.

When the wife and I went shopping for
our new cars, she thought she was
coming home with the 760Li, well ha,
that was for me, she got the entry
level 745i. I had a 1999 S320 and she
had a 2001 Audi A8. The BMW 7-series is
the top of the line, I kind of like it
better than the Rolls Royce I test
drove, yes I like it better... My
daughter and son took both cars to prom
and they said their friends just fell
in love with it. So did the whole
family. There is really no words for
it. I was going to purchase the 2004
Mercedes Benz S500 AMG but this caught
my eye, my 760Li is a deep deep red and
the wife's is just plain old black.
A regular-wheelbase 760i model has been added to complement the long-wheelbase 760Li -- it features all the power and amenities of the top-line model in a more manageable size. The 745i and 745Li models are freshened with new alloy wheels, and are available with all-season run-flat tires as a no-charge option. All 7 Series models can add adaptive headlights as an option, and Sirius Satellite Radio as a dealer-installed accessory. BMW has made revisions to the iDrive control system to simplify various functions, and the automatic climate control system now has a humidity sensor. Finally, the outside mirrors get a power-fold function this year.
When the E65 first came out, I fell in love with it. I was impressed by the athleticism, the performance, the features. In my mind owning a BVMW (I've owned two 5 series and one 7 series, the last one...
