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.

King of the road

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

The 760Li is a fabulous performance luxury sedan in every way. The power, handling and comfort exceeds any vehicle have ever driven. I have driven many. The fuel efficiency is extraordinary on the highway and poor in the city. The only problem that I have had in approximately 1 year of driving are some quirky electronics issues. The dealer did a good job of taking care of these issues with a minimum of inconvenience. I highly recommend this V12 for someone looking for something above and beyond.

Hate the inside

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

nice looking, wonderful to drive, comfortable, the the interior design and controls are from bad to awful. the dashborad displays are too small for me to see with out my glasses but i do not need glasses for driving so it is a problem. the i control for sound system and heating is too complicated to remember and use while driving. the electonic park neutral drive reverse is downright dangerous as you can open the door and get out without realizing it is not in park

Bmw 760li

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

It is a beutiful and refined car. I may be a gas guzzler but for anyone who can afford a $100,000 + car it should be no problem. It handles great, accelerates great and it has a V-12. The inside is spacious and comfortable. the outside it beutiful and sporty.




Great luxury car
