Wish I Hadnt Sold It! — This car was trouble free for over 130,000 miles. Had plenty of power and rode very comfortably. It was even quiet going down the road and handled the curves well. The seats were very comfortable, and everyone was impressed with this car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good fuel mileage for a V12. I got 26 mpg on the freeway at 80 mph. Wish that I hadnt sold it

Cons: Thick windows leaked between layers. The heavy glass wore out the regulators prematurely.

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.

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.

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.

Pros: matronly

Cons: too long (5M)
