About BMW Alpina B7

There is no sweeter reward in life than vindication, which is why BMW's styling guru Chris Bangle must now be sporting a smile wider than the Mississippi river. Known as the father of the current 7 Series, Bangle's critics delivered him a horrible thumping after the car's unveiling, yet the same bulbous curves and distinctive bustle trunk that so offended five years ago has begun showing up on a number of new designs, most noticeably such stalwart vehicles as the Toyota Camry and Lexus LS 460. Vindication indeed! For its part, the 2008 BMW 7 Series continues to serve as the company's flagship and offers unparalleled levels of luxury, interior space and overall performance. Available with a choice of regular or long wheelbase, a V8 or V12 engine and, for the lucky few, the 500-horsepower Alpina B7 trim, the 7's appeal grows stronger as its once controversial design becomes the new norm.

"The 750i sport is one of the best cars ever made by BMW, for those looking for great cornering ability the 750 is the king. Bmw need to focus more on the quality of the materials and the software they use in the car. It could brake down a little more than a lot of people would tolerate. BMW's navigation system is worthless and not very user friendly. If anyone is looking to get one make sure you lease it."

"This is the best car I have ever owned. It is a high quality and high performance vehicle. Saw some bad review of BMW 7 series but I don't believe them. I recently drove my 745Li from Ohio to California, almost non-stop. Not one problem or issue. It was 104 degrees on the southern route and I was averaging 90-95 miles an hour for 10 hours a day. No problems at all and loved the comfortable ride. What can I say, a high quality high performance machine that is worth the price."

"I have owned the car for 1.5 yrs...it is a space ship inside beautifully styled and lit. sound levels LOW. engine levels nil! Available power ---space shuttle ...mi per gal about 25 hiway. Not an around town car..touring car for sure and makes the long trips enjoyable exactly like flying up front on a oceanic trip..first class vs. riding in coach.you arrive from your drive relaxed not exhausted! need a copilot because youll want to nap in the comfy seats .. i am a pilot , might be too many gadgets, idrives, dials for the average jo..if you dont want to read manuals..dont buy this! For the rest of us..no problem! the ultimate machine!"
