2011 BMW 750 Review by David Thomas

As the 2010 7 Series ebbs into the 2011 with few changes, I spent some time driving the 750Li xDrive. That's BMW's long-wheelbase, all-wheel-drive version of its flagship sedan.

While I was impressed with the standard-length 750i with rear-wheel drive, the 750Li's added length and weight sapped any excitement from the driving experience.

Luckily, backseat passengers are cocooned in a level of automotive opulence you don't routinely find under the six-figure mark.

As a person who routinely chauffeurs and rarely rides in the backseat, I couldn’t recommend any car that so heavily favors the rider instead of the driver.
