Can't wait to try this car out. My GM ordered a 750xi with every single option box ticked off as a dealer demo, so I can't wait to try all of the new features and see how the car handles!

I think its the right choice that they went with an I6. A twin turbo V8 would make the car a lot more nose heavy and would make turn in grip worse, and the new M3 and M4 are often praised for the great turn in. If only they would have tuned the exhaust properly, the I6 S55 would have been a masterpiece.

And even with their V8 AND hopped up C63S model, it still can't beat the M3/4 in reviews.

Have you even driven the new M3? I had two e92 M3's and never looked back once going to the M4.

Hi 7series-freaks,

I took part in the int. press presentation of the all-new 7series in Portugal, and made some videos. Sorry for the quality.

Here you are:

Auto-Remote Parking with BMW Display key:


Test-Drive with the new Driving Assistant, testing lane control assistant:


New generation of surround view:


Executive Lounge in the long version:


Some of my pics, you find on Facebook, more later.

Greetings from Germany,
Chriss

Unless there's some other option, my 2016 750i xDrive seats do not fold. I have a 2012 528i xDrive that does have folding seats, but the 7 only has the passthrough door.
