new 7 Series

I finally saw them and sat in the short wheelbase car.
Overall it's nice and the inside is definately much improved over previous generation, but damn 100k for a 7 series?!!! Let me not even think of the 760li

Prem. sedans I would get a s550 AMG pkg.

I will test drive one this week and will post driving inputs soon.

I went to training on the F01/02. Fantastic car! Drives much smaller than it's size.

The integral active steering is awesome, very smooth.

Plenty of power for something that weighs so much, great torque, and turbo lag is all but non-existent.

The nappa leather is very supple, and the interior updates are pleasing to the eye. I also like the fact that they moved the HVAC controls to the center stack, and tilted it back towards the driver.

It's really a car that you have to drive to fully appreciate! There are too many fun features to list.
