Awesome — Love the power, handling and comfort. I absolutely recommend this car to anyone that drives long distances. It is a large car and at times I would prefer a smaller car around town. The 360 hp power makes me want to race it through traffic however the size does not allow for it.

This car is as close to owning a space shuttle as you will come in your lifetime!  This car is about 5-8 years ahead of its time!  Wow what amazing features and options this car has.

Cons

Not many!

The Ultimate In Luxury Sedans !!! — This is the ultimate in Luxury ! This car can do it all, groceries, kids, night out, fine dinning, enough room for friends and family, more luxury than any one person deserves. The voice command features alone are amazing! The I drive is awesome although it takes a little while to master, but once you have mastered it you are on your way to liberation, and freedom that most will never experience. This car makes you feel like a million bucks. The 2006-2008 750Li is an amazing car for the money. It is hard to get this much comfort, luxury, and style for this kind of money!

Big Papa — This is the BMW flagship, luxury at its finest, great styling and a real statement of success. The long wheel base provides amazing back seat roominess and it feels like a limo back there! Heated and Cooled seats, moon roof, great comfort and not bad mileage for a big V-8.

Pros

Amazing luxury and handling

Cons

The Li takes a little more time to getting used to the length, but once you do, you really appreciate the extra space.

Smooth Ride And Lots Of Looks — I bought the 750Li because I really wanted to have a flagship vehicle, the premium ride quality, the responsiveness, and the pleasure of driving a car that everyone wants to have. I chose the Li version because the extra length is something you don't know you want until you have it. Allows for everyone to be comfortable while traveling and the extra space makes it easy to transport things without placing them on the seats. I love this car. The benefits of buying a flagship vehicle are that the quality and technology are way ahead of the pack; you will notice other makes and models years later barely have the feature present in these cars. Oh and by the way, 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds! Put it into tiptronic manual and this car smokes 95% of the cars you will drive past.

Bigger Is Better! — Bigger is Better! We love the 7 Series, but our 2006 750Li has a much more roomy feeling on the inside, Compared to our 2010 750Lix, ride comfort and seats are probably more comfortable also, verses the firmness and stiffer suspension of the newer of the two.

Bmw 750li — nothing really... Its great, exept that the front ring headlights need replacing after a year again... Accelerates great and brakes fine aswell... If your smart you can get aa good price on it too... over all very fun to drive! Update 2/2013 Got rid of the car 12/12 because so miuch was going wrong with it. Car was smoking out of the tailpipe, and we were constantly adding oil to it. These issues started around 90,000 miles, and they wanted over $3000 to fix the issue. The heating core breaking was the kicker to get rid of it. Not ok for an $85000+ car.

Immaculate Luxury Sedan — This car is one heck of a machine, immaculate, powerful and clean. The car's performance is impressive, and it's looks are stunning. If you've ever dreamed of a top of the line BMW, this car is worth the money. Low mileage, garaged, well maintained.

If You Can Get It Prestine For Nearly $60k From Sticker>grab It! — This is truly the Ultimate Driving machine> If only on trips you do not fall asleep! I have taken much time to understand the endless seat settings for back,neck,sides,and bottom!> It is like being pilot of plane instead of car. I like all the I-Drive voice features(that I can master). It is like tank in quality>fast smooth acceleration/great breaking without whimmer'>I have not had to spend much additional during my ownership it had the 100K maintenance plan with it!>Everywhere you go it gets that extra nod!> I enjoy it with the top open and enjoying the open roads.Lastly it is as quite as church mouse" as far as rattles etc. that most other makes have problems with>But in the end I only wish it got better in town mileage(12-15)> Highways are very fair at nearly 25mpg(Actual 24.5)Best>
