I bought this 06 750i on the last day of the month and got a great deal. car is certified. my only complaint is the around town gas mileage - is it me or do you get about 10-12 mpg in city driving on a tank. Freeway does much better. I have the two different size tire layout with 40s on back 45s on front. perhaps that contributes. Car is a rocket ship on the freeway I have also had trouble with passenger door lock - it sticks.
I drive once you get used to it is great. love the ability to shut down the battery/electrical power with the flip of switch to go away and leave the car "sleeping" on power.
Fuel economy. PS anythoughts on how to get better?
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.
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.
Logic 7, quiet ride, power, handling, auto sunshades, iDrive, controls, cabin storage, and reliability.
Easier to use navigation. Allow iPod software to work with cars equipped with rear entertainment system (as mine is equipped).
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.
Power, acceleration, iDrive, Bluetooth, convenience package, sound system, exterior and interior quality and finish, sport tires.
GPS more user friendly, rear doors should open wider.
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.
Performance is outstanding. Soft ride and much kick.
Reduce buttons and levers. Return to old dashboard. Cannot trust a valet to know how to drive it.
