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

Review

I was one of the first to buy the 2006 750Li when i was almost sold on the Mercedes S-500. My sales person assured me this new BMW "was far better than the rest". Just not true. Instrumentation panel and workings are very poor, distracting, and not efficient for the driver. Knobs and a huge "dial" to manage the car is uncomfortable and unsafe, as you must always focus on the screen vs the road. Seats are not great, gas use poor, and just not a comfortable or appealing interior. Not worth the money or wait. I am trading it on the Mercedes which beats it in all areas for the same price. I have owned many BMWs and luxury cars, and this one is, by far, the worst.

Favorite Features

Exterior is fine, engine and ride are good

Suggested Improvements

Total redesign of the interior and instrumentation. Just plain poor. I have owned many BMWs and this is a true disappointment
