I took the plunge on a 2007 CPO 750Li...
Got off to a rough start, so far in the first month:
1) New front wheel bearing-thumping vibration in front end
2) New IDrive screen- after locking up intermittently after delivery
3) New Key after old lost program
Bottom line, I love the car, the dealer has been great about replacing everything under warranty. I obviously have doubts about the 180 point whatever CPO checklist. They should have caught the problems I inherited.
So now I start with a clean slate, will update if any problems occur.
Full on luxury.
Everything feels intuitive, no complaints about I drive, first class all the way.
Service is red carpet treatment, only hoping I don't get to know them too well.
Whole family and friends loving the pampered feel when traveling, and I love the sport factor when needed.
Was not even in the market for this car when I made the mistake of test driving.
Unbelievable value at high 30k down from new MSRP of 90k.
Car is super clean, like new.
Bottom line: life is short, take time to pamper yourself...
Just hoping for good reliability...will advise...
Easy to drive but a little large at times for driveway maneuvers.The seats and interior are very comfortable.The seat massage is something I thought was over the top but on a long drive it is pretty nice. The car puts a smile on your face by just driving it. Expert engineering has made this car unreal. If you step on the gas it goes like a scalded dog. The tectronic shifter makes for some fun times once you get used to it. It made a trip on the Blue-ridge parkway a true pleasure. If I had t to do over I would have bought this car years ago.Of course I work for an oil company so I will suffer the gas pump experiences!
Handling, quiet, stereo that makes you crank it up when the right song is on.
Maybe it is just the bizarre way I am built but my left knee pushes on the door when I am driving and the door flexes causing the faux wood to creak. As silly as this sounds it really irks me. Obviously if this is the extent of my irritation I should be slapped and told to shut up.
I was a little bit skeptical whether I should go for the 7 series. After several reviews I decided to go for it and see if there would be any headaches with owning a car like this. The idrive is easy to use, just make sure you don't use it while driving, I almost rear ended several cars. The comfort is out of this world, you really feel like you are in a leer jet.
That little red button that you're not suppose to touch. LOL (sports mode).
I just traded my '06 750Li lemon for an '07...and got another lemon. The '06 was continually in the shop for transmission problems, which after 4 attempts and a new transmission was never fixable. The new '07 has the same problems (I know, "fool me once..."). BMW as a company has been horrific to deal with. The mechanics say that BMW is well aware of the faulty transmissions, but no fix is available. Apparently BMW's policy is "let the buyer beware". Yikes. I now have an attorney instead of a drivable vehicle. Oh well, live and learn! I guess there is good reason why the A8 and the S-class have passed up the 7 series in reviews over the past several years.
It's in the shop too much to remember.
1)BMW needs to fix the faulty transmission problems. 2) BMW needs to return to the principles of ethical support and business conduct that helped build their reputation.
