2009 7-series impression
By steverobin on
2009 BMW 7 Series 750Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6A)
I recently drove the 2009 750iL. I have had several 750iLs and currently own a 2006 750iL. The current car is masculine and sleek, on the outside and quite comfortable in the inside. I like the heads up display and the lane change indicator. The car is powerful and responsive in the BMW tradition. I noticed that the dash was covered with a light color leather and it reflected onto the windshield. This is dangerous. I also noticed a wind noise at the driver's window. This is something my current 750iL does not have. I was not impressed with a $1000 guzzler tax and a drop in gas mileage. This was poor planning.
Heads up display blind spot indicator lane change indicator.
Go back to 2008 750 iL engine. Turbo charging is fine when the economy is not sacrificed. Get rid of light color dash, it reflects onto windshield, this is a very bad idea.
