Is this coolant problem only on 2016 models? Or do any of you have 2017 models with this problem?

Ignore him. He's from Boston with only 1 post on this forum. I would choose the 740i over a 750i any day. The 6-cylinder is more reliable than the 8, better fuel economy, and you most likely won't...

The 7 looks stunning on the road

Yesterday I saw the new 750i on the highway. It's probably only the third one I've seen on the road. Anyway, the car was a dark color and had an M-sport package with possibly 20" wheels.

The car...

To be honest, the more I look at the pictures the more I like the car. I love the fact that for the first time in the USA they are offering NON-RUNFLATS with a spare as an option.

I agree with you. It's a 'safe evolution' design. The F10 was the best selling 5-series generation ever, so I imagine they decided they didn't want to stray too far away from the old design and risk...

I don't care for your attitude. Waiting 2 days is NOT acceptable. Period. I don't care how many cars or options you have. A nail in a standard tire could have been patched in minutes. Instead, you...

YouTube: BMW 760i V12 commercial

Pretty good commercial of the new V12 760i.
(It's better if you have the volume on).

$5,000 Option Credit until Sept. 30

I saw someone mention on the "Ask a Dealer" forum that there is a $5K option credit on the 7-series (and 6-series) this month ending Sept. 30. That basically means you get $5,000 off the selling...

The credit means you basically get $5K in free options. The dealer will deduct $5K from the selling price. I noticed it listed the $5K credit for both the 2016 and 2017 models. I'm not sure if that's...

In certain states like Illinois (finally) you only pay tax on the monthly lease payment. Not on the selling price of the car. So the lease comes out cheaper.

In my opinion, the states that charge...

I guess we should be thankful BMW offers an OFF option for ASS. The newer Chevy's don't have an OFF option. I recently had a 2016 Chevy Malibu as a rental and there was no way to turn it off.

Oh, wow. I didn't know they did that with ASS. That's good to know that it stays in the off setting permanently without having to go to the dealer.

I agree. There should be a way in I-drive for the driver to choose a default setting, but unless the dealer can do it through coding I think you're basically stuck with the Comfort default setting.

DHP on a 5 series and X5 costs more because it includes ARS (Active Roll Stabilization). That reduces body roll in corners.

You can't get ARS on a 3 series.
