Ok so here is the NEW comparison test from Car&Driver for April 2011. This time the 750Li didn't do so well, ending up in last place. And yes, it did have the Active Roll Bars, Integral Active steering, and the 19" Rims.

Why is it that you have like 3 threads on the first page alone about how the 7 series rates so bad supposedly in certain articles? Maybe a little class envy coming from an entry level 3 series and a rather feminine X5? Jags are for senior citizens....Audis are played out and are slightly above VW in my book. Who the hell cares?

Trust me LOL NO Envy for a 7-series. Those cars just scream old man. I am not even close to that yet. When I am ready for Old man wanting to be young I'll purchase a Mercedes Benz SL ;-)

Nice job on the 1 month reply. I guess that would be the difference between you and I.....I am young and already did the SL thing 4-5 years ago. You'll still be old in your SL, friend.

I couldn't agree more. Not everyone that has a 7 is old I'm in my 20s. Why would someone post so much sh%$ about the flagship of the brand they drive everyday?
