Consumer Reports

Those looking for useful (and not-so-useful) equipment will not be disappointed by the 2008 BMW 7-Series.

ConsumerGuide reports that the 7-Series 2008 BMW lineup "includes the 750i, 750Li, Alpina B7, and 760Li."

Automotive.com challenges car buyers to "think of every luxury function a car could possibly be ordered with...The 7-series [BMW 2008] has it...20-way comfort driver's seat, pop-out phone keypad, column-mounted electronic gear selector, intricate climate control, Bluetooth, active cruise control, 6-disc DVD changer, LED atmosphere lights, and more." This source adds, "despite these features, the [BMW 2008] interior is not nearly as intuitive as it could be."

Cars.com states, "If the doors aren't closed all the way, a soft-closing feature pulls them the rest of the way shut."

One annoyance that continues to be a part of the 2008 BMW is the "iDrive control system, which uses a single knob to control the audio, navigation, and phone systems"; according to ConsumerReports, this still "causes frustration."

Edmunds informs that the BMW 2008 7-Series models "are eligible for a long list of options." Kelley Blue Book divulges that "most [BMW 2008] 7 Series options can be found bundled into packages...available features [include] the Logic7 premium Surround Sound system with 13 speakers and a six-disc CD/MP3 player, the Adaptive Ride Package with self-leveling rear suspension, power-closing doors, power trunk lid, Adaptive Cruise Control, rear side-impact airbags, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, Night Vision and rear climate control."

Conclusion

The 2008 BMW 7-Series offers all the comforts of home—a very well-heeled home.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
