2012 BMW 7 Series Sedan 750Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I have owned various high end vehicles and have always found them to be well constructed and a pleasure to drive. That is, until my BMW 750IL. During the warranty period I had to make numerous visits to service for warning lights etc. and the dealer mechanics could never identify a problem. That is, until the car was just outside the 50K miles warranty. Then the problems started en masse. At 52K, major engine repairs (valve seals) and three of the four electric window controls failed. About 1K miles later had to repair ball joints, leaking oils components, battery, etc. My view, stay away from BMW at ANY cost. They claim superior enginerring but exact opposite in my case.


Worst Features

None, suggest buying another brand.

i leased BMW 750i for 3 years and can tell you that I will never lease it again, I had the worst customer service experience and was overcharged by $650 at the end of the lease...

Review

I have been driving 750iX for 4 months now. The vehicle is solidly built. For those who are interested in purchasing one, following might be of concern; 1. Throttle response on normal mode is below average. I feel it's hesitant to push forward and there is jerky feeling in the process 2. The car gets quite noisy in over 80 mph both from tires and wind. Mine is equipped with all season run flat tires and that could be the reason 3. When I shut off the engine, the radio (or ipod) still continues to be on. I have to press the start button one more time to shut off the radio and this is annoying 4. I have to get really close to the garage door to open or to close


Best Features

5. Combination of Sports and DS mode give me excellent acceleration with huge torque, but the engine sounds very coarse all the time even during the idling time 6. My 750iX did not have steering wheel equipped channel changer. Rather, cruise control set occupies the one side of steering wheel. The other side has the volume control


Worst Features

I prefer the old cruise control stalk over the current one which is identical to the one Volvo adopts. I have to press the on/off button first before pressing the speed set button. I get the average of 16.5 mpg over 75% highway and 25% local. I tend to use DS/Sports mode combination probably 75% of the time. Overall, I would give 8 out of 10 overall,and I chose 750iX over A8 only because of the loyalty discount and the convenience of the included maintenance.

Review

I have leased 7s for 25 years. This is the very best by miles. The X drive showed its value last terrible winter. I haved drived the car for 10 months and hasn't been in for repairs. No bugs. Past 7s have had a number of technical problems and a return for service. This is an exceptional auto and is fun to drive with comfort and safety . The I drive is much improved compared to past models. it is very well worth the cost. Highly recommended.


Worst Features

Better gas milage with X drive.
