Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview BMW's flagship 7 Series is a full-size luxury sedan that competes with top-line sedans like the Audi A8, Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The 7 Series comes in regular and extended wheelbases as the 750i and 750Li, respectively.
New for 2009 The 7 Series has been redesigned for 2009 and shows off new styling on the outside and a reworked chassis underneath. The previously available 760 model and the V-12 engine have been dropped for 2009; the sole engine now is a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8.
Exterior Styling changes includes a flat front nose and sculpted design similar to the 6 Series coupe. The 7 Series is also slightly larger for 2009.
Exterior features include:
750Li's wheelbase is extended 5.5 inches compared to the 750i
750Li models have a unique roofline
Aluminum roof, doors, hood and front fenders for decreased weight
Optional high-beam assist automatically dims high beams for oncoming drivers
Standard xenon headlights
Standard adaptive headlights move with steering wheel
Optional 19-inch wheels with sport package
Interior Up to five occupants fit inside the 750i. An array of available entertainment and comfort options can fit in the interior. BMW says it's revised the iDrive system that controls the navigation system, stereo, climate control, etc., and says it's made the navigation system more user-friendly.
Interior features include:
10.2-inch dashboard screen for iDrive
Four-zone climate control, including independent control for rear passengers
Optional rear Comfort seats on 750Li models have massage and ventilation features
Optional rear entertainment system with dual screens in headrests
Optional head-up display

Under the Hood The 750's 4.4-liter V-8 is a new engine and the only power plant available for 2009. The engine drives the rear wheels with 400 horsepower and 450 pounds-feet of torque, and is borrowed from the BMW X6, where it was initially introduced.
Twin-turbocharged V-8 with direct injection
Six-speed automatic transmission
Front multilink suspension
Increased chassis rigidity for 2009
Safety A newly added option is a blind-spot detection system. When changing lanes, the system senses when an approaching car is near the 7 Series blind spot and, like similar systems, warns the driver with a vibration in the steering wheel.
Standard first- and second-row side curtain airbags
Standard front-seat side-impact airbags
Standard knee airbags
Electronic stability system
Optional lane departure warning system
Optional blind spot detection system
