Great driving vehicle the performance is superior. I have not experience any mechanical problems yet. Back seat has plenty leg room. On the negative side engineering improvements are needed to eliminate excessive wind noise when the sunroof is open.

My 2015 BMW 7 series has been a very dependable vehicle. I have not had any major problems with it since purchasing in late 2014. Maintenance was included with the vehicle for 4 years, the same as the vehicle warranty.

Fast, tons of options, very beautiful design. The navigation is much simpler. The engine is very smooth. The Hologram HUD is awesome and the drive settings from Sport + down to Eco Pro are just amazing.
