Best car ever. Dollar for Dollar the best value in luxury sport sedans. Great power, smooth acceleration, creature comforts abound, great styling, solid reliability. My first BMW was an 84, 318i, then graduated to 5 (98 540i) series and have owned a 2001 740i, 2004 745i and now the 750i, by far my favorite!
Drivetrain, interior, styling. If you can figure out an Ipod and an Ipad then you'll have no problems with the idrive- if you're still using a typewriter then you may have a hard time with it
More power. 360hp needs to be pushed to 420hp then it will put a permanent smile on your face
I bought this 06 750i on the last day of the month and got a great deal. car is certified. my only complaint is the around town gas mileage - is it me or do you get about 10-12 mpg in city driving on a tank. Freeway does much better. I have the two different size tire layout with 40s on back 45s on front. perhaps that contributes. Car is a rocket ship on the freeway I have also had trouble with passenger door lock - it sticks.
I drive once you get used to it is great. love the ability to shut down the battery/electrical power with the flip of switch to go away and leave the car "sleeping" on power.
Fuel economy. PS anythoughts on how to get better?
Got this car used for a fraction of msrp. My strongest impression is the low rpm punch and the acceleration. Engine and transmission is super smooth, lots of features are standard, interior is classy. Lots of room, very comfortable for long rides, especially passengers. Seat adjustment was unbelievable. Exterior look was an improvement with facelift, going back to classic bmw look. Why won't you buy a cpo executive car, it is a bargain.
This is an update to a previous review. Have 35,000 miles on the car and it is extremely reliable. Just installed the Bridgestone Serenity tires, and these are the perfect tires for the car. They take the edge off of the sports package ride without compromising handling, while providing more quiet operation, longer tread life, and all season capability. These tires really give the car a better ride that is more fitting of a luxury car. Have also used Dunlop SP SportMaxx tires which handle well and are quiet, but ride stiffer, have shorter tread life and are not all season. Continentals that come with the car are just o.k.
Logic 7, quiet ride, power, handling, auto sunshades, iDrive, controls, cabin storage, and reliability.
Easier to use navigation. Allow iPod software to work with cars equipped with rear entertainment system (as mine is equipped).
