Don't see the saving from the battery

by Moosszz from Diamond Bar, CA on Mon Feb 07 2011

Just leased this car last week for $1500 / month payment with $2800 drive off fees with 12,000 mile/year and 36 months term. It was fun driving on the freeway but I don't see the saving on gas during the regular city drive. The iDrive knob is very complex but I was told it was much better and easier to use compare to previous model. The run flat tires are expansive costing around $600 each.

Style, Class, Unique

by yahya from Philadelphia, PA on Thu Jul 28 2011

I bought the new one with almost all options, with a black and bone colored interior. Yes, inefficient with gas, top 18 mpg on highways even, but the driving style, comfort is very satisfying. And if you do the real math, if you're paying 100+, you really don't care about gas mileage. Yes, I replaced one tire with a bubble problem on 2200 miles, now for 475 dollars. But so far I feel that it's worth every penny when I feel like I'm driving my own personal jet. Way better than S550 and Audi A8

The car that commands respect

by nima53 on Mon Sep 04 2017

This car is designed for the person who likes to spend, show off confidence, and radiate success. It's more of a status symbol, but at a price that isn't actually prohibitively expensive. When you buy this car, you are not concerned that much about reliability or resale value or things like that. This car was designed to be enjoyed and was designed to provide a superb driving experience. And it does deliver. When you switch the transmission to SPORT mode, it outruns the competition. Neither the S-500 nor the the Lexus can keep up with it. It has both elegance and class and pumps adrenaline. This is literally the flagship model of BMW (outshined only by the i-8). But if reliability is big on your list, then buy a Lexus. BMWs were built for performance, not reliability per se. This is a German car, and German cars are notorious for having expensive parts. So the BMW 7 Series is a car you must care for and treat it very well. garage it, do the maintenance services on time, park in the pack of the parking lot, etc. In return, it delivers beauty and performance and tells the world you're on top of your game. How should I put it, it's like 'Trinity' in The Matrix. You have to treat it like a lady, but you will fall in love with it. This is not a LandCruiser where you can run it off a cliff and it still outlives you. When you drive a 7-series, youre basically telling the world "Move aside, I'm doing extraordinarily well in life". Also, there does seem to be an age thing going on with S class vs the 7 series. The BMW is more energetic and fits rising stars and the Top-gun profile. The Mercedes is on the other hand, attracted to business and exec types that are already well established. I chose the BMW because it had way more options for the price than the other 2 competitors, and also because it drives like a beast on the freeway while seamlessly maintaining class and elegance.

Fun to drive...comfortable as well

by jw33mine from TOLLESON on Mon Jun 19 2017

I feel that this is a sporty yet luxury vehicle that gets good fuel mileage for the power it has. BMW does not disappoint with this design.

Our Take on the 2011 BMW ActiveHybrid 750


CORNWALL, N.Y. Luxury has a conscience. It can be found in the 2011 BMW ActiveHybrid7 -- a gas-and-electric version of the BMW 750i sedan.

But it is not conscience with humility. The ActiveHybrid7, in the words of its maker, is "the world's fastest street-legal . . . most luxurious and dynamic hybrid."

All of which means you'll pay dearly to get it. The gasoline-only version of the 750i starts at $82,000. The ActiveHybrid7 model carries a base price of $102,300.

The price differential automatically makes something clear: Anyone with the wherewithal and will to pay a $20,000 premium for the privilege of driving a hybrid automobile isn't doing it to spend less on gasoline. Nor is that buyer overwhelmingly concerned... Read More
