A Really Great Old Car — This car is a great car it rides smoothly maintenance is expensive even for the little things. I would recommend that you try to do it yourself. Its fun to drive. Its a safe car . Power is good brakes too.

Pros

Absolutely Loaded with Luxury Options, very stately vehicle. Great for special occasions, or comfortable daily commuting.

Cons

The long wheelbase of this premium level sedan can be intimitidating to park in narrow spaces, but the front & rear parking sensors are of great assistance.

Wonderful, Great Car To Drive. Even More Luxurious As A Passenger! — Loved the interior space, power & heated rear seats with footrests give rear passengers a limousine quality feel. This car is a treat to drive both long & short distances. It handles smoothly, cruises well and has power quietly in reserve from the V12 powerplant whenever brisk acceleration is called for.

Bmw 750il — comfortable and luxury to be frank, I don't like this type car before, after my friend sold to me cheaply, I found this car has a good handling also, same as other BMW, as a family man like me, it's great for my family for them to have a good embarkation.

Love The Car By xiiikn3ss

I love this car. I bought it 5 years ago for 500 dollars off of one of my friends. Its a very well made car and a blast to ride in. The suspension takes dips and turns like a true champ. Read More
