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.
The iDrive, active cruise control, heat/a-c, great seats, cooler in back, The v- 12 sucks me into the seat when I have it on sport mode transmission. Low profile 7 series tire hug the road.
Give me more trunk room and twin turbo V-12 in 2009. That's it.
