2006 BMW 7 Series 750i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Got this car used for a fraction of msrp. My strongest impression is the low rpm punch and the acceleration. Engine and transmission is super smooth, lots of features are standard, interior is classy. Lots of room, very comfortable for long rides, especially passengers. Seat adjustment was unbelievable. Exterior look was an improvement with facelift, going back to classic bmw look. Why won't you buy a cpo executive car, it is a bargain.


Best Features

Bluetooth, power, seats, wheels, suspension, parktronic, remote key access, rain sensor, iPod adaptor, gps, iDrive, sports steering wheel, premium speakers.


Worst Features

Some wind noise above 70mph. Front could look sleeker. MPG.

2006 BMW 7 Series 750i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is an update to a previous review. Have 35,000 miles on the car and it is extremely reliable. Just installed the Bridgestone Serenity tires, and these are the perfect tires for the car. They take the edge off of the sports package ride without compromising handling, while providing more quiet operation, longer tread life, and all season capability. These tires really give the car a better ride that is more fitting of a luxury car. Have also used Dunlop SP SportMaxx tires which handle well and are quiet, but ride stiffer, have shorter tread life and are not all season. Continentals that come with the car are just o.k.


Best Features

Logic 7, quiet ride, power, handling, auto sunshades, iDrive, controls, cabin storage, and reliability.


Worst Features

Easier to use navigation. Allow iPod software to work with cars equipped with rear entertainment system (as mine is equipped).

Review

After 34000 miles the car drives wonderfully and did not have any problems. Powerful, very sharp and precise driving, excellent and predictable brakes, very rich and elegant interior. It looks great, it is very comfortable and I just love driving it! I will recommend it to anyone who loves to drive and relax in the same time.


Best Features

Power, acceleration, iDrive, Bluetooth, convenience package, sound system, exterior and interior quality and finish, sport tires.


Worst Features

GPS more user friendly, rear doors should open wider.

Review

You expect a car like this to practically drive itself. The interior controls are too complicated. I have to consult the owners manual far too often. If I spent more time in the car, I'm sure I would become more familiar but so far, 3 months is not enough. Performance is fantastic. Far better than my 740.


Best Features

Performance is outstanding. Soft ride and much kick.


Worst Features

Reduce buttons and levers. Return to old dashboard. Cannot trust a valet to know how to drive it.

Review

Once you master the iDrive, which takes a little practice, it becomes simple. the vehicle has wonderful features, that other cars lack. It is a very quiet,very smooth, & very swift piece of work. The luxury seats are extremely comfortable. the luxury sound system is awsome. The fit & finish are perfect. AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE!


Best Features

Bluetooth. Seat comfort. Sound system. Silence & swiftness. Auto park feature.


Worst Features

Navigation is cumbersome to enter destinations. Should be touch screen. CD system sould be able to randomly play discs & should not cancel when radio is played. Door handle beams don't remain on long enough. Remote door lock should be programmable to open all doors on one push or two.
