New BMW 7-Series: First observations by a previous gen model owner
Every single thing oozes quality and is miles ahead of the S-Class.
BHPian Turbanator recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
A close known picked a day before and is mighty impressed. I will update you a few days after his initial euphoria has settled.
From my short experience with the car, this is entirely different from the earlier generation or even the current 740. As I have previously observed during an event of BMW, where one side of the trip was on 740 and returned via i7, suspension on the i7 is more like an S class (Maybach) level. The additional weight (600-700 difference), especially in the floor (batteries), explains this.
Every single thing oozes quality and is miles ahead of the S-Class. Seats are soft and highly comfortable, with tons of controls. The kind of interior lighting has to be experienced; pictures do not do justice.
And that Rear screen, finally, dealerships are delivering the cars after the 8,5 upgrade that takes care of the setup. I can’t even imagine how the new Diamond system with 35+ speakers that will come standard on the cars from next month will sound. I won’t be surprised if this beats S class or 740 sales by a margin.
