Just came off an S430 lease. Had
previously owned the old style 740 iL.
This car blows away the S series
Mercedes. Excellent power..more HP than
S500. Concerns relating to I drive
appear to be overstated...easy to use
and rather intuitive. Best sedan I've
Stereo is incredible; seat comfort;
overall drive experience!
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.
Like the way you start it up, shift
gears, the iDrive, Seat ventilators,
and MY V12 Engine. I live in
Pittsburgh, PA and the V12 does more
than serve me good on the Parkway.
Separate the Windshield wipers from the
Gear shifter (little too close). Body
side moldings would be nice, but who am
I to complain, oh yes my wallet is the
one to complain. payments on the 760 is
well over 2 grand and on teh 745 well
over 2 grand also! BUT BMW you are the
I just love my BMW 760Li, It's a fun
car to drive, sporty and luxurious!!
But it does put a dent in your wallet.
I got every option in my 760 and it all
topped out at $119,800. My Wife has the
Mercedes Benz S500AMG, and I must say
the BMW is a whole lot better. It is a
gass guzzler though< MERCIFUL!! I'm
already used to the iDrive, I don't
know why everyone is complaining about
it!! If your not ready for a
techological challenge, then don't buy
the damn car!! Oops sorry!! but it's
the truth! I have a silver on black
760Li, and I must say it gets alot of
THE WHOLE CAR!!
Nothing Really!! Well gas mileage but
what do you expect with such a big car
and a V12 6.0 Liter V12!!
Have only put 1900 miles on the 745i
since purchasing but can honestly say
it's an incredible driving machine.
i-Drive took less than a week to
master. It's not for everyone but I
find having all my controls in one
central location a plus.
Would recommend the 745i, a true
