2006 BMW 7 Series 750Li 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

First 7 Series BMW following mostly Japanese luxury (Lexus, Infiniti) and also a Benz. This car is a lot of fun to drive and really couldn't be more comfortable. I have typically stayed away from European cars because based on my high mileage each year, I am always concerned about reliability. So far it has been problem free and more enjoyable than previous cars.


Best Features

Bluetooth technology; sound system; driver's seat.


Worst Features

Not sure I am a fan of the keyless ignition but I understand how it would be an important feature for many drivers.

2006 BMW 7 Series 750Li 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Fun to drive the 750il. Takes time to learn all the features. The gas mileage isn't bad for a V-8. I love the room in the back seat. The navigation system is entertaining but somewhat distracting. Same with changing the radio stations using the iDrive. No problem with the blackberry after t-mobile made some changes in the cell phone program. I have had no reliability problems.


Best Features

Navigation system, iDrive, room for seating, the drawers for change, acceleration.


Worst Features

The side view mirrors should electrically close for the cost of the car. The trunk could be a little deeper (48") for three sets of golf clubs.

2006 BMW 7 Series 750i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

You expect a car like this to practically drive itself. The interior controls are too complicated. I have to consult the owners manual far too often. If I spent more time in the car, I'm sure I would become more familiar but so far, 3 months is not enough. Performance is fantastic. Far better than my 740.


Best Features

Performance is outstanding. Soft ride and much kick.


Worst Features

Reduce buttons and levers. Return to old dashboard. Cannot trust a valet to know how to drive it.

Review

Hello. I have a 2006 750Li which has had numerous problems in several months. First, the parking light indicated a failure. Brought it to the dealer and they were not able to recreate the problem. Next, the iDrive froze and when this occurs the navigation, and all controls are stuck. This occured in a busy part of Los Angeles which created a problem as we were lost. The car has had 4 iDrive failures since, during one I stopped by the dealer to show them. Their technicians witnessed it, as did the service manager, however they can't locate a fault code in the computer so they can't correct the problem.
