Review of the 2005 BMW 7 Series

  • A brilliant luxury sedan scarred by senselessly complicated interior controls and awkward exterior styling.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Superb driving dynamics, world-class drivetrain, highly advanced safety systems, dizzying array of features, sumptuous furnishings.

  • Cons

    Toys can be distracting from the task at hand, confusing secondary controls, odd styling details.

  • What's New for 2005

    Park distance control and adaptive headlights are now standard on all models. Comfort Access is a new option, and allows the driver to lock and unlock the doors without pressing any remote buttons. Also new this year is a Rear Entertainment package that includes a rear-seat iDrive controller and screen, as well as a trunk-mounted six-disc DVD changer.

The ultimate driving machine

by on
Vehicle: 2005 BMW 7 Series 760i 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 6A)

This car is truly amazing. It drives and feels like a much smaller car. Acceleration, cornering and braking are outstanding. I was worried about this car from all the reviews on the i- drive. Don't listen to the complaints; it takes a while to learn but is very simple and intuitive. I can navigate through the entire system while driving easily. You can just try to figure it out while you drive.




The perfect luxury sedan

Vehicle: 2005 BMW 7 Series 760i 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 6A)

The BMW 760i is arguably the best buy that I have made. Although the styling is a complete change from the beloved previous-gen 7er, it remains a statement to the trust and courage of BMW. Cruising down the highway is no problem, and at 100 mph on the Texas panhandle with all your friends, nothing can be more enjoyable (exept on the autobahn, of course)

This is the ultimate driving machine. The idrive is fun and despite other reviews, user friendly. The ride is exhilerating and offers handling surpassing other cars in its class. I found the seating adjustments a little difficult to comfort my 6' plus frame when compared to the A8. The premiun sound system is great and easy to control.




Disappointment

the car so-so but stay away from Weatherford BMW of Berkeley this was a horrible experience. I will never go back there again. I don't think I'll ever buy a BMW after dealing with Weatherford BMW.
