The 7 series has all the bugs worked out now. I work at a BMW dealer. The first year cars were a nightmare. They actually didn't buy that many back, although BMW did spend alot to keep customers happy. If you have never driven the new 7 series , you owe it to yourself to do so. It is an awesome car. Also the new 5 series will be out soon, and it has an even better suspension/steering system than the 7 and is incredible to drive.
