Understated looks, a luxurious interior and impressive build quality make the BMW 7 Series a great limousine. It's not quite as comfortable to ride in as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but it's certainly better to drive. Two versions are available, a long wheel base model designed for chauffeur work, and a short wheel base car - which is targeted at those who are likely to do the driving themselves. Four engines are available, including two diesels and two petrols. Option lists are enormous, and even include internet access and large flat screen TVs for rear seat passengers. You'll pay handsomely for the privilege of buying this car new, resale values are very low too - particularly for the largest petrol engined cars.
