I am leasing the 750ix for one year, excellent car inside out except the run flat tires I have to change 6 tires and one rim in one year you have to buy the tire insurance otherwise you are risking too much.
Fun to drive almost perfect except dealing with frequent dealer visits to change tires.
If you talk to their customer service about the tire problem they refuse to deal with the problem.
I personally know many BMW car owners who have the same problem of frequent tire problems.
This my last car with run flat tires very disappointed it is a waste of money, time and resources(rubber).
I have a 2011 750LI Xdrive BMW.
The paint on the knobs on my panel are coming off,
I called BMW to complain.
I went to a dealership and found that other 750LI X were having the same problems.
If you are having this problem please call the head quarters of BMW and file a complaint maybe we can get them to replace the knobs.
I had a 2007 750LI BMW and never saw any fading on the heat controls , startup controls and a few other.
To spend 100k BMW should not put cheap anything on this car.
I have previously owned the S-Class and 750Li (2006). This time, I was debating between 750Li and 740Li (S-Class IS A JOKE to me) and went with 740Li. Reason, driving feel almost the same, except you will feel a bigger Torque. 740Li, however, doesn't feel the turbo lag like the 750Li. The power kicks in sooner where 750Li will lag (very obvious). & 740Li has all the bells and whistles as it big brother and better mileage. It is the smartest choice over any other brand and even its own big brother. Unless you are all about big engine and want to show off you have more $$$$$, 740li is absolutely fun and slightly economical to drive than the big engine brother. No remorse, guarantee
About 6 months ago the car started sputtering when you accelerate. I found online that you can take your BMW 750LI xdrive in for a customer care package ( They did not call it a recall but a customer care package.) I thought this would correct the problems because they replace some sensors and vacuum hose but the problem is still there.
BMW did a full diagnostic and said (Remove and replace all injectors (x8), ignition coils (x8),and spark plugs (x8) (During the inspection found the vehicle misfiring) final cost will run $6777.00 my warranty company will refuse to pay because they wanted to know what would you replace all 8 injectors and all of the other parts because all 8 injectors cant be bad. The warranty company think BMW know they have a faulted Injection systems and trying to upgrade and correct the problem at the customer expense. The car burn major oil, BMW claim this is normal.
I will get a second opinion. This is the worst car I have ever own and when you spend a 100,000 on a car you expect to drive it more then 4 years without all of the problems these car has cost us. I thought BMW quality meant something to the company , their name and their customers.

Please do not spend any big dollars and buy BMW. I have this car and it has been to dealership five times in matter of just three years. Car stopped while I was driving!!! they had to change fuel injectors and then it happened again after few months. Then the back up camera did not work!!! The fuel injectors started to make clicking noise and they said it was normal. !! I have just 27000 miles and it is four years which is not much for any car. So please take my advice and think and do more research before you spend huge amount of money on this car.
