For as many options that are missing on this 750Li xDrive, it really isn't at a loss for it. If I were ever in the market for one of these vehicles, I imagine mine would be spec'd out similar to this. Sure, it doesn't have night vision, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot helpers, or a rearview camera, but it doesn't need it. Instead of relying on flashing lights and warnings, just use your properly adjusted mirrors; we all learned that once.
This 750Li xDrive example comes with more eye-catching styling and performance-oriented upgrades, which is a nice change of pace from our loaded-up Four-Seasons tester. The M Sport package comes with twenty-inch wheels, an aerodynamic kit, an M Sport steering wheel, and anthracite headliner trim; the exterior pieces, combined with the gray paint, really enhance the styling and bring the big, boring 7-series body back to life. And the larger wheels and 35-series Goodyear tires don't compromise ride quality at all.
BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system works just fine, although it eliminates the joy of easily drifting the long-wheelbase vehicle around corners, but who really does that?
