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


Review

I purchased a Black/Black 750iL in June of 2006. I've never had to go back to the dealership for any service other than a nail in one of the tires. I've owned Lexus, Mercedes, Nissan, Toyota, etc., and this as been the most trouble free auto yet. I really enjoy driving the car and have become spoiled by the many automatic features (door close, keyless start, bluetooth, etc.).


Best Features

Comfort and space. My friends argue about who gets to sit in the back seat! This car really moves and is nice and quiet on the road. Other features: heated/cooled seats and, although I never thought I'd use it, the heated steering wheel. You can adjust the seats to almost any position.


Worst Features

Reading MP3 CDs could be faster (initial load can take some time), Real Time Traffic integrated with the Nav, aux port for MP3 player.

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


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.

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


Review

Two thumbs up for this car. Suits me much better than the S500 Benz it replaced. The performance/style/fun factor is purely BMW. The iDrive is a much better way of interfacing with the features than an overdone array of icons and buttons and is much less buggy than the Comand system on my last benz. Sound system is wonderful and the Bluetooth implementation is flawless. Well done all the way around!


Best Features

Performance, driving experience, interior design, use of technology and very effective use of space.


Worst Features

A little too much wind noise at highway speeds. Some things we take for granted, like putting the car in neutral, should be more intuitive

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


Review

First 7 Series BMW following mostly Japanese luxury (Lexus, Infiniti) and also a Benz. This car is a lot of fun to drive and really couldn't be more comfortable. I have typically stayed away from European cars because based on my high mileage each year, I am always concerned about reliability. So far it has been problem free and more enjoyable than previous cars.


Best Features

Bluetooth technology; sound system; driver's seat.


Worst Features

Not sure I am a fan of the keyless ignition but I understand how it would be an important feature for many drivers.
