Beauty and the Beast

2009 BMW 7 Series 750i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6A)
The beauty is on the outside, the beast is under the hood. I've been waiting for this car to hit the ground since they announced the new model. I thought I have to drive it before I make a decision on what car to purchase next. I thought it couldn't be much more fun to drive than my 07 550I. I was wrong. At low/normal speeds this car is as smooth as silk and a very quite ride. Drop it into sport mode and nail it, and you have a full blown sport sedan that's not only faster than the 550 but handles just as well. Needless to say, I traded the 550 that same day and drove off in the 09 750I. I drove all of the competitors offerings, A8, S550, E550. No comparison. Very solid. Sport option a must.
If you're a serious driver, the sport package is a no-brainer. Camera option is very cool, not only for seeing what is behind you, but also the cameras located on the front end which give you a peek into traffic from the left and right sides of the car without sticking the nose out too far.
