Thanks! Share it with your friends!

The BMW 7 Series is their flagship sedan. As you’d expect, it’s quick, plush, and quiet and the controls are complicated. But unlike previous big BMW sedans,…

Finally, a review that is honest and doesn’t idol the BMW. Thanks.

I didn’t notice that the 3-series interior showed up by accident. Looks
like BMW did a great job designing the 3s interior based on the 7-series.

You haven’t driven a car with epas, have you? It’s horrible.

anthony cooper says:

I happen to like the 7 series, heat/cool seat,night vision,lane departure,
heads-up more than enough technology than anything on the market, built
like a tank and will last for 10 to 15 years, I’ve made up mind, I’ll get
another one, this time the 760li with about 40 to 50 K miles and about 6
or7 years old it will last me 20 years, Heated rear seats with message the
entertainment system sold me on one, A car the whole family could enjoy.
140k dollars new and about 50 k used. The price of a Cad.

After I finish my studies and get that job, I will buy this car for my
parents. Of course I will take it out for a spin from time to time.

timogden4 says:

I think the fact that’s it’s a long wheelbase leads to these issues, it
wasn’t designed to be a long base, it’s just something they built for
demand.

mbrwn25 says:

nice to know it’s not only american car companies that totally miss the
mark once in a while. That transmission is idiotic….if bmw listened to
customers they would of scrapped that crappy I drive system years ago….oh
well I wouldn’t drive a 7 series if it was free….

bestattitude says:

The 7 Series is unquestionably the most fun to drive car in its class.
Don’t tell me the Jaguar XJ does a better job, ’cause it just doesn’t feel
as responsive, and the steering doesn’t give you any feedback. Of course,
the 7 Series is a limousine, designed for taking care of it’s rich driver
and passengers, so over time, it’s become more comfy than sporty. But
still, it remains the most pleasant and exciting to drive vs. the A8, the
S-Class, the Lexus LS and the Jaguar XJ.

Versillio Jones says:

I’m a huge BMW fan but I have to admit their recent efforts lack
inspiration.

Alejandro Hidalgo says:

Rubbish

Aaron A says:

should have tested the 760Li ;)

counkev says:

Wow you guys actually read the comments. Kudos to you. But you should
answer our questions.

consumerreports says:

Thanks goes out to our loyal viewers for catching the 3 Series dash footage
that snuck into our original piece. With terabytes of video files, things
can (apparently) happen. We have since corrected the footage. For more
information on the 7, including correct interior photos, check out our
complete road test.

0HOON0 says:

Thank you for correcting the mistake.

mouse u can use this

Luka Torque says:

THE 7 SERIES HAS LOST ITS MOJO. SERIOUSLY, THE 7 SERIES IS LOST IN A POND
FILLED WITH HIGH END LUXURY CARS. LEXUS LS 460 AND MERCEDES S550 PRETTY
MUCH HAVE THE GRIP ON THE PREMIUM LARGE LUXURY SEDAN. LEXUS LS460 IS THE
BEST SELLING PREMIUM LUXURY SEDAN IN THE USA. BMW HAS CLEARLY LOST ITS
PURPOSE IN THE AUTO MARKET AS EVIDENCED BY THE POOR PERFORMANCE OF THE 7
SERIES. IT HAS LOST ITS IDENTITY—-NOT SPORTY, NOT SMOOTH, NOT QUIET, NOT
COMFORTABLE–BMW 7 SERIES DOES NOTHING WELL.

dekster14LP says:

I know it’s not a perfect car, and I wouldn’t buy one new. But it’s very
pretty to look at, it’s better proportioned than a 5 and from what I read
and the most fuel efficient in the segment. The 50i isn’t the best engine
BMW makes, but in general I haven’t read of much problems with BMW’s F01 7.
Looking at the second hand market, a pre fl (which has better steering
feedback) looks cheaper than it’s rivals, even cheaper than most 5 series
for sale, that makes it a lot of bang for the buck.

jamviator says:

You say its a “big shame” the 7 series doesn’t drive like a sports car,
well it shouldn’t. It should be agile but certainly not like a sports car.
Also while I’ve never driven the new 7, I’ve seen many many many reviews
that say the 7 handles and drives in ways a car that size simply should not
be able to. But you guys say it feels big and heavy and itsn’t fun to
drive. All I’m saying is sometimes that great disparity can make some
people wonder how unbiased you guys really are.

simplyadiktive says:

Audi has nailed this car segment. the A8 is a dream in every way.

Mercedes S class, nuff said
