Going back would you buy your 7 again? If not what car do you wish you had?

Just curious, I was on auto trader and found some 2007, 2008 Maserati Quattroporte's. I love my 750li sport but I would not be opposed to a Maserati lol. Would you buy your 7 again or would you go with something else in the same price range? Personally I would buy my 7 again with the maintenance package and warranty I love the car.

I love the 7 and when everything is working properly, I couldn't think of another car as amazing in the same price range. Just for the sake of this thread, I would say that the only other cars I would consider are the new M6 gran coupe or the new Audi S8. They are of course WAY more expensive though.

I see you took your car to Red Rock Gotta love those windy roads with the sport package

That S8 wouldn't be a bad choice at all! Haha yeah I'm right by red rock so I drive up there all the time. It can be really fun the handling is great. I drove my 7 up to the ranch in northern nevada. I would get a big smile everytime I saw the caution windy roads ahead signs.

I would've waited a little longer and purchased an 08 S class or an 08 CL if i got lucky.

Love the 7 but getting bored seeing as though I used to drive a 745 before my current 750.

I was gonna buy a range rover before I got the 7 but then found out how unreliable range rovers are, but now I'm thinking about selling it and buying either an audi A8, mercedes 350 or lexus 460

I've wanted a range for a few years now. I know I was telling myself it was just from the older ones and they weren't that bad. It took my two cousins, who had the Range Rover Supercharged and Range Rover Sport and my moms boyfriend, who had HSE Range Rover to show me how bad they are. All three had major issues wether it be the air suspension, transmission issues and coolant leaks. But, honestly I think the 7 series is right there with range rover with my initial few months of ownership of my 750Li. Our 750i hasn't given us any issues besides a broken exhaust mount that causes a vibration and bad rattle.

I think the maserati is over hyped. I've driven it and it doesn't come close to the ride of a 7. The rear is literally cramped. The front looks funny.

If I could go back I would look into the S600

I would definetly look closely and I have at the Audi S8. I have a dealer here locally that has a 2009 for sale. I told myself I will not look at any other autos...this year. I love my 750i but I will say I look forward to test driving the S8 as I was impress with the S4. Which by the way I traded in for the 750i I presently own.

I would not. Only because I never purchase the same model of any car twice as I always want to upgrade to newer technology, design, etc.
