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).
I purchased a Black/Black 750iL in June of 2006. I've never had to go back to the dealership for any service other than a nail in one of the tires. I've owned Lexus, Mercedes, Nissan, Toyota, etc., and this as been the most trouble free auto yet. I really enjoy driving the car and have become spoiled by the many automatic features (door close, keyless start, bluetooth, etc.).
Comfort and space. My friends argue about who gets to sit in the back seat! This car really moves and is nice and quiet on the road. Other features: heated/cooled seats and, although I never thought I'd use it, the heated steering wheel. You can adjust the seats to almost any position.
Reading MP3 CDs could be faster (initial load can take some time), Real Time Traffic integrated with the Nav, aux port for MP3 player.
After 34000 miles the car drives wonderfully and did not have any problems. Powerful, very sharp and precise driving, excellent and predictable brakes, very rich and elegant interior. It looks great, it is very comfortable and I just love driving it! I will recommend it to anyone who loves to drive and relax in the same time.
Power, acceleration, iDrive, Bluetooth, convenience package, sound system, exterior and interior quality and finish, sport tires.
GPS more user friendly, rear doors should open wider.
Two thumbs up for this car. Suits me much better than the S500 Benz it replaced. The performance/style/fun factor is purely BMW. The iDrive is a much better way of interfacing with the features than an overdone array of icons and buttons and is much less buggy than the Comand system on my last benz. Sound system is wonderful and the Bluetooth implementation is flawless. Well done all the way around!
Performance, driving experience, interior design, use of technology and very effective use of space.
A little too much wind noise at highway speeds. Some things we take for granted, like putting the car in neutral, should be more intuitive
