2008 BMW 7 Series Sedan 750i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is the fourth BMW 7 series I've had and it is better than the others. Subtle changes from the 2006 and all make the car a bit more fun to drive. Great deals available as it is the last of this model. It is considerably less than a comparable Audi, Mercedes, or Jaguar, and definitely better to drive.


Favorite Features

Handling, interior, overall design. I love the iDrive which I know some find difficult. It's the third one for me and other cars seem boring in comparison.


Suggested Improvements

None.

2008 BMW 7 Series Sedan 750i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Best-in-class handling and ride. True quality everywhere you look and touch.


Favorite Features

Handling, ride, quality.


Suggested Improvements

1. Get rid of iDrive and go to a touch screen system. 2. Four stalks on the steering column are two too many. 3. No need for cruise control presets. 4. I'm not sure the average valet can bring the car back from the parking area without help from the owner as it is currently configured.

Review

Overall it's just a great car, rides well, always works as it should, Once you get to know iDrive it's a good system but not great, quality fit and finish inside and out, comfortable on the highway, in traffic, or on the twisty back roads. Decent MPG for a large car with a V-8, average 16 MPG, (80 city, 20 highway driving). Can be had at great price right now with slowing sales and a new model coming out soon, if you don't mind driving the older model. Can't beat BMW's warranty and free scheduled maintenance.


Favorite Features

Great engine, smooth transmission, comfortable front seats and interior, smart dashboard design, balanced ride, sharp handling.


Suggested Improvements

iDrive controller and display (revised in the 2009/2010 7-series), Should be Standard for 80K luxury car; Adjustable Suspension (ride pkg), Comfort Access, and Premium sound Pkg, iPod Interface. BMW bring a diesel and Xdrive (AWD) model to the US immediately!
