Well I meant mainly the older models. I can't necessarily afford a newer model, as they are $40,000+. But I like the older 7 Series cars too, like the early 90's models and the late 80's models. When I said gas guzzlers, those were what I was referring to. They only get something like 14mpg and 19mpg highway.
It looks good. I've been in the BMW factory back in 2003 when the new 5 series was just ready, but not yet shown in car papers. Was kinda cool to see them fully already. Further there was a 6 series in development. Front of 7 clearly, but wird at the back. (Only the chassis, no plate work was shown yet).
But in fact it was all about the production of the new 5 series and 7 series... I asked the guide about that 5 series but he didn't want to tell much, except that it was a new one. Later with the 6er I named the 6-series, and then he called me 'papparazzi'.
But yeah 7series is far too expensive in this country. Road tax is abmormal and the price is dysmal.. €121.000 for the 730d High executive..
