I genuinely think this is best 7er, fuck hideous M760iL.

Nice video, very detailed (as always) and voice is soothing

Too bad i can't afford it

Alpina wheels that show the lug bolts look so much better!

Well I suppose you could say that if you're trolling for skin deep entertainment to tickle your pleasure sensors requiring little to no mental effort; on the other hand if it's information you're looking for that serves an important BMW niche market segment, then I personally find his review good, dare I even say age-appropriate?

Still after a while it's unbearable. I stopped watching couple years ago. Too repetitive. I like Doug DeMuro because it's pretty random. U

Doug DeMuro is by far one of my favorites, he has great humor as well as honest reviews on vehicles saabkyle although super informative I feel like everything is way to scripted I prefer Doug

Chances are they would suck anyway. Let them stick to what they're best at: hating.

I love Saabkyle's reviews they're so detailed and informative. If I wanted humor I'd watch standup comedy or a movie.

I actually like SaabKyle's reviews. Staid as some folks play it out to be be, it's fairly technical & straight to the point. Not much of a fan of Doug De Muro reviews as it's just too comical & I personally don't learn anything -- & I'm an engineer & designer who moonlights salsa performances & amongst other interests.

I love how he sticks to the exact same script every single time, down to honking the horn.

Agreed! I had to fast forward thru much of this video due to his obnoxious voice.

I still can NOT get over the tablet sticking out of the dash. It looks like a afterthought! And I have never been a fan of the underwhelming stick-on bodykit Alpina has always used. The stats are impressive no question! I would like to have seen more aggressive and unique bodywork. Also never been a fan of those fugly wheels. Love the chunky steering wheel and unique instrument cluster!
I want to see a head-to-head with this and the S63 and S8+...

Not hating, just stating that M looks hideous for big bossy saloon. Alpina is way more elegan and subtle (minus stripes).
