BMW has updated website with range of accessories for 7 series , good thing is that even prices are mentioned and some of these looks competitive & generic which can be used in any car

Test drives reviews are out.

http://overdrive.in/reviews/2016-bmw-730ld-road-test/

This could be an irritant:

Did I mention, one has to charge the key? That’s right, the main car key features a display that’s also touch operated and offers a slew of features like the car’s door, windows lock/unlock status, engine status, total range etc. One can also precondition the air-conditioner before entering the car. However, these features only work when one is in close proximity to the car. It would have been nice if it used the cloud to control these functions. The key could have featured inductive charging by placing it in a dock rather than manually charging it every few days. Over two-days, the key battery went from full charge to critically low.

Motortrend does a comparison of German super saloons.



Well not the top of the line. But at least one step down from the top of the line.

BMW sure does get a harsh review and BMW might think twice before lending their cars to Motortrend in future.

The take on the over the top design with hockey stick was unexpected. Actually saddened when you actually remember the simple lines of the E38 7 series.

Not sure if this info has been shared here, didn't come up in search.

BMW India website now has the specification sheet mentioning the 740Li variant.

Here is the link:
http://www.bmw.in/content/dam/bmw/ma...et_October.pdf

Further, the price list has also been updated:

http://www.bmw.in/content/dam/bmw/ma...ice%20List.pdf

There seems to be an additional variant of the 730Ld called DPE Signature with laser headlights and Sky Lounge roof as standard. 'Executive Lounge seating', upgraded leather, seat ventilation, and remote parking also appear on the feature list. Exterior colour choices seem to be limited to 4 on the Signature variants and 19 inch wheels replace 18 inch wheels.

The larger wheels plus the air suspension, I am unsure of how well that would go from the ride comfort / reliability angle.

Yes, for a while. Check this thread.

Apparently, this has been received well by the customers and is in demand though it's still missing rear trays which can be a boon to highway travelers when they launch. I think MB is simply not doing enough with S class and must have taken a hit. They have only taken off features from launch editions and there is practically nil change in past Year and a half.
