Bought '06 With 14k Miles — Power - **** Speed - **** Amenities - ***** (I can't think of anything else to add to my rear entertainment system, rear fully adjustable and climate controlled seats, screens for all windows in back, suede headliner, fridge, massage for driver's butt, Sirius, DVD, CD for 7, just has everything. I would not add anything. Sport Mode is my fav. Seat settings are perfect. I have a speed limit setting at 85 because it's easy to accidentally being at 100mph.

Owner for 0 years, 2 months

Miles Driven per Year:10,000

Pros: V12 BMW with a ton of options, yet discreet

Cons: MPG around town about 10.5 :(

Absolutely Perfectly Designed. Very Well Thought Out. — There is virtually nothing bad about this car except for two things depending on how you look at it. First this car is giant. ANd second it has more computers and gizmo's than the computer has that i am using to type this.

Pros: solid, great pick up, unbeatable ride, very classy

Cons: long/big, too much technology

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

Overall:

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfort and Capacities,

Cons: Light colored carpets, require cleaning more than I like.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: FUN, great looking, handled well

Cons: Quality

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>

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: To enjoy one of the worlds finest automobiles> with maxum in "ooumph"

Cons: Not for the uncaring owner>take care of it or it will COST  you!
