2009 BMW 750i review


As I slid myself onto the soft premium leather seats of the all-new BMW 750i, I fearfully anticipated the embarrassment when I, a seasoned automotive journalist, might be forced to stare blankly at the dash of the new flagship Bimmer in technological confusion. Would the smiles on the faces of BMW's PR folks turn to snickers, as I struggled to even begin to operate a car that over the years has become known more for its incomprehensible iDrive system than for premium luxury and performance?

Not at all.

With the key fob still in my hand I pushed the Start button and the twin-turbocharged V8 came to life in a civilized fashion. "That was easy," I thought.

The ease of use doesn't end there either. BMW has vastly improved its iDrive system for the new 7 Series, making the many complex features on the luxury saloon simple to operate. BMW might like to call it "revised" but in actuality the system as it existed before has been all but eliminated.

Could this at last end the iDrive controversy? Oh, and that is a very big car!
