[Edit] The closest thing to Windows? The car needs to be turned off in order to reboot I-Drive? :lmao:

When it comes to cars like the 7, TD somehow forgets about the importance of driving feel. No other luxury car can match it.

Get the computer glitches solved, and this will be the best luxury sports car ever, if it isn't now. It drives incredibly and the seats are more comfortable than anything that I have ever sat in, bar none.

:thumbup:
I like this review-- its one of the most balanced, useful and fair reviews of the 7 that i've read. I like they didn't just overreact and make sweeping incorrect statements like "everything is controlled by the idrive" Good report. I still can't get past the interior and exterior-- and I'd never buy something w/ that much new technology in its first year.
Ok, I stopped reading after this paragraph:


Thankfully, whether one adores or abhors the 2002 7 Series from a visual standpoint, it only takes a few minutes behind the wheel to confirm that the car's basic BMW genes are intact.
AFAIC, enough said.

PS: DaveN323i, as you may know, English is NOT my native language, but even I know they misspelled "LUDITE"... For someone who seems to be into grammatical perfection, I thought you should know that... :rolleyes: :p (Needless to say: PLEASE disregard this PS and pardon my ignorance if "LUDDITE" means something else... I really wouldn't know).
luddite is a word, last I checked. :)

Well, I'm obviously wrong then. Thanks for enlightening me folks. I've been spelling it wrong all along... I SWEAR I have an English/Portuguese dictionary that spells it LUDITE though... I guess you can't trust something printed outside the US, huh?


Edit:

Too bad it's at work. I'd scan the page to show you guys... :(
Sure, use the dictionary as your scapegoat :rolleyes:

:p

In the interest of grammatical perfection, it's spelled "sure".

"Shure" is a microphone company.Builders of the venerable sm57, the mic that's recorded more classic rock guitar solos than you can count.

DAMN IT!!!

I always get caught by that. atyclb pointed that out last week, and I still do it :mad:

caught me before the edit :mad:

I've seen that many times, and saw it this time around too... I thought it was some kind of Internet Forum "jargon" - I must confess that I would find it RIDICULOUS (Nate, notice that it's spelled R I D I C U L O U S) if it were some kind of jargon. I mean, why spell something so trivial wrong?

Shure also makes very decent needles for turntables...

That's nothing compared to my gaffe... Dude, I'm gonna have to put up with a LOT of crap because of that one... That's fine though, at least now I know it's spelled LUDDITE... Plus, I don't have a problem "getting out of my own way"... ;)

Gee, go and watch Law & Order, and miss the hijack.

Don't worry Alex. English is also not my first language.

But guess what? I am also an editor for a publishing company.

ONLY in America :D

[Edit] Wait! I am into grammatical correctness? What gave you that idea?
Don't kid yourself. Bremo is still the emperor in this area. :lmao:
