Exclamation LA 2008 Live: 2009 BMW 750 Li gets iDrive powered owner’s manual

The 2009 BMW 7-Series made its U.S. debut today at the 2008 LA Auto Show. The U.S. will get two variants of the new 7-Series including the 750i and the 750 Li. The outgoing 360-hp 4.8L V8 will be replaced by the 4.4L twin-turbo V8 from the X6 xDrive50i.

That makes an outstanding 400-hp with a maximum torque of 450 lb-ft for the very-large sedan. Mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, BMW says that fuel-economy was also improved but wouldn’t give us any specific numbers. What they did tell us was that the 2009 BMW 7-Series will be the first car to get its own “Integrated Owner’s Manual.” What does that mean?

That mean your 2009 750i or 750 Li won’t come with a physical book. Instead BMW will deliver the owner’s manual electronically through the iDrive. What happens when iDrive fails to operate? Well, you figure it out.

BMW and their stupid futuristic fucking ideas, an integrated owners manual? WTF!!! yeah thats a cool feature but at least leave the book that costs 2 dollars to make if the idrive fails... seriously like what are they thinking, just another good idea implemented in a retarded manner like the electronic oil dipstick.

ok, i went to the autoshow yesterday as promised and as i predicted it was PIECE of CRAP, i mean seriously i was so disapointed that i told my friends that (it was the UGLIEST bmw ever produced) and they all looked at me like a was a freaking alien, they were like (did those words just come out of your mouth) and i was like YEA. i mean from kidneys to the taillights and everything in between, i was so disappointed in the whole thing that i didn't even want to sit in the car, it was really that bad and those kidney grills should be BANNED from bmw history 4 FOREVER. i took one picture of it, and erased it later to take pictures of other cars i hope i will never do that again to a bmw car, but it was really that bad. btw i will upload the pictures later, other than that the auto show was pretty damn nice, MANSORY had the best showroom and cars IMHO, and lambo had the best girls !!!!
