Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The biggest news for the BMW 7 Series this year is under the hood, in the form of a new 6-cylinder diesel engine. This turbocharged 6-cylinder offers up fuel economy that's superior to the ActiveHybrid 7 model, and it can accelerate to 60 mph in just over six seconds.
Changes for the 2014 BMW 7 Series include the addition of a configurable digital instrument cluster (except on hybrid and Alpina models) and an enhanced navigation/iDrive system with a new touchpad controller. The power trunklid gets a motorized open/close feature activated by running one's foot under the rear bumper, and 750 trims can be fitted with the smaller (and less easy to damage) 18-inch wheels at no extra cost.
If you're in the market for a high-end luxury sedan like the 2015 BMW 7 Series, then congratulations on your success. The good news is that you don't have to sacrifice driving pleasure just to convey your status in life, thanks to the 7 Series. While the BMW 7 Series is great to be driven in, thanks to the roomy Li long-wheelbase models with their extra rear-seat room, all 7 Series BMWs are even better from the driver's seat. Whether you choose the 6-cylinder-powered 740i, the V8 750i, the monstrous V12-powered 760i, or the high-lux Alpina B7 model, you can get your 7 Series in short or long versions with extra rear-seat room, and in rear-drive or all-wheel drive.View BMW 7 Series vehicles for sale near you.

"This car needs a major overhaul mechanically. Look at other reviews on line on other sites. My car has had a road vibration from the day I picked it up brand new. The vibration is from 35-50 mph during gentle acceleration, and it is extremely annoying for a car of this cost. It has been in the shop multiple times, and BMW cannot come up with a solution and has no explanation. Also, electrically, the battery has died numerous times and is not covered under warranty!! Over $700 to replace the battery in the first 12 mos of the car owned. My 2003 and 2006 7 series had no problems what so ever and I still own the 2003 model. BMW rushed this car out in 2009 and refuse to admit some of the problems and have no idea how to fix them. Stay away!! Lots of horsepower and comfortable, but car has been in the shop for more than 3 months in the first 15 months owned, at a clip of over $1500 per month on the lease. Service dept has become rude and frustrated because they have no solutions and want to wash their hands of this car. Car will be back on their lot the second this lease ends and someone else can have the joy of owning maintaining this car."

"Absolutely love my 750L. Striking good looks. I still stare when another one passes by. Performance is exhilarating. Passing and highway ramps are nothing short of an awe/jealousy inspiring feat. 80 feels like the perfect highway cruising speed so watch out! Downside: run flats scare me but I haven't had any issues. Yes, they are expensive but I'm most concerned that I'll need a replacement when I'm not near a big enough city to keep these specialized tires stocked. The second downside seems to be part of owning a German car... I have sensor lights go off and other gremlins that have put me on a first name basis with the service department. Granted, none have left me stranded. Its just life with a German car - sort of like a high maintenance spouse. Totally worth it - but frustrating when it gives you grief. Service department tells me 7's have more little glitches than other BMW's just because its always their newest technology. Third con: mileage is terrible - like its 1972 and gas is 25 cents a gallon terrible. Some tell me "if you can afford a 7, you can afford the gas." However, if you drive non-highway a lot, this car will fetch you between 14 and 16. Highway city combo pushes it up to about 17/18. I apologize for my carbon footprint in advance. All said, I would buy again. Nothing matches the driving enjoyment and luxury of a 7."
