What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For It’s a fine-driving, hi-tech luxury car with a big interior and refined cruising abilities

Against Its looks are 'distinctive' at best, and the iDrive system annoys a lot of drivers

Verdict The 7 Series is powerful and refined, but its appearance isn't to all tastes

Go for… 730d

Avoid… 760i

BMW 7 Series Saloon
  • 1. Gearboxes and electrics need watching
  • 2. The air conditioning has a nasty habit of packing up, so check it's in full working order
  • 3. The cabin is huge and lavishly equipped
  • 4. The iDrive rotary control system can give irritating levels of trouble - check it all works
  • 5. The boot release mechanism is known to fail on some cars, so check it carefully
