Fun to drive the 750il. Takes time to learn all the features. The gas mileage isn't bad for a V-8. I love the room in the back seat. The navigation system is entertaining but somewhat distracting. Same with changing the radio stations using the iDrive. No problem with the blackberry after t-mobile made some changes in the cell phone program. I have had no reliability problems.
Navigation system, iDrive, room for seating, the drawers for change, acceleration.
The side view mirrors should electrically close for the cost of the car. The trunk could be a little deeper (48") for three sets of golf clubs.
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.
Hello. I have a 2006 750Li which has had numerous problems in several months. First, the parking light indicated a failure. Brought it to the dealer and they were not able to recreate the problem. Next, the iDrive froze and when this occurs the navigation, and all controls are stuck. This occured in a busy part of Los Angeles which created a problem as we were lost. The car has had 4 iDrive failures since, during one I stopped by the dealer to show them. Their technicians witnessed it, as did the service manager, however they can't locate a fault code in the computer so they can't correct the problem.
My white BMW 750Li is a wonderful car! It excels in design, and performance. It's extremely fun to drive. From the tastefully put-together interior to the 360 hp V8, it is truly "the driver's luxury car"! It's performance is breath-taking, and the way it sits on the road is impressive! I had a 745lLi in 2003 and traded it in this year. Even though the 750 is a face lift, it is much different than the 745. One difference is that it's much noticeably faster than the previous model.
They are the iDrive which they made more user-friendly than the 745. It is also much quicker. I love the Logic7 Harmon Kardon Sound system and the convenience package that includes automatic trunk opening and closing and power soft-close automatic doors and trunk. Also, the luxury seating package.
I think that BMW should make Active Steering for the 7. Also, I think they should improve their V-12 engine in the 760 to be faster than their competitors!
