Matt Farah: BMW the new 750 is really a wonderful place to be, and I'm not exaggerating for the sake of exaggerating. Right now at this moment, I've got heated seats and cool seats turned over at the same time, and I'm getting a bump massage. Not only that, Tommy the cameraman, he's getting a bump massage. JF in the back, he's getting a bump massage too, and the more I mess up my lines, the longer they'll bump massage your ass. It is fantastic. I love it.
How does it drive? It's a 7 Series. It drives great. It's the ultimate driving machine when it comes to flagship luxury cars. Yet on a Lexus, you expect to be dead silent and float like a butterfly. Here in this, you get a surge of power from the 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8, you step on the gas. How fast it does 60, about 5 seconds, which for a 4000 plus pound car is no small feet. But it pulls with such smooth power delivery, that you don't even realize the engine is turbo charged. It's not that it is lag by evil or something.
Driving it, you can tell there's a lot of electronics going on. You can tell that there's active steering. You can tell there's active braking, active suspension damping. In fact, everything in this car's active. With a car like this, you want to be relaxed on your way to and fro from work, because odds are, you've a lot more important things to do with your day, than worry about your commute.
You want maximum comfort. And that's why this car has features like auto hold, which -- believe it or not, this really does this, I'm not making this up. When you come to a complete stop, with auto hold, you don't have to keep your foot on the brake, the car will just stay stop until you hit the gas again. It's pretty cool.
So if you stop in the traffic with a lot of red lights, you don't have to stamp your foot on the brake. Pretty cool! Also, if you're going to be sit in the traffic for commute, you've got to adapt this cruise control. It works on a radar off the front bumper. You can actually set it at 65, and then, you know let's say traffic comes through a standstill. The cruise control will slow the car down, all the way to a stop, all the way back up to speed or anywhere in between, depending on traffic conditions, without you having to touch the gas or the brake.
Let's say, you're too lazy to look down at gages for instance. No problem! The heads up display projects key information right under on the windshield, right in front of you. So you can have some really new trick features, that weren't on previous 7 Series, like for instance, 4-wheel active steering, which at under 38 miles an hour. The rear wheels counter steer up to 3°, for a better turning radius, in parking lots and other tight spots.
At over 50 miles an hour, the rear wheel steer at the same direction as the front wheels, which reduces load on all four tires, improves high speed handling, and gives the feeling that the car actually can perform way beyond its weight.
The 750 also comes with the front bumper mountain wide angled cameras that actually act as telescopes to help you see around objects that may block your direct vision. For instance, if I look through my left, I can't see around the red Toyota Matrix or any car that may be coming. But if I am interrupt, I have a camera that looks left for me. So even though my vision is blocked here, the camera can see very clearly the traffic is clear, and I can pull out.
The Last Generation 7 Series, engineers tested the concept of you iDrive. One knob controlling all the functions of a vehicle, which is certainly a great idea at the time, but, time's also have told us that it didn't work as well in practice. The new generation of iDrive solves a lot of those problems. It's a lot easier to use, because there's hot buttons that take you quickly to the specific functions like navigation, your CD changer, your iPod. Also your air-conditioning and heating functions around the dash now. So you've the menu surf to adjust the temperature a couple degrees.

Matt Farah: You know what, I want to relax for a minute. I'm pulling over JF, you drive, I'm hopping in the back. I'm going to pull over in front of this big mansion here. -- 4-wheel active steering. I'm hopping in the back. Time for a massage. The back seats of 750i are even better than the front. I've got four-zone climate control, independent audio controls, 2 cigarette lighters. I don't even know why it went bad. I've got this amazing automatic window shades that come up and cover, just seal me right in here.
And it comes at a price. What is that price? All these features in this car at $27,000 to the price of the base 750. Take a look at this. Here's the window sticker for our car. Look how full this is. Have you ever seen a bigger list of options on a paper? Look, we've got convenience package 1700, driver assistance package 1350, luxury seating package 2500, luxury rear seating package 3500, premium sound 2000, sport package 4900, instrument panel with leather 1200, active cruise control 2400, night vision 2600, heads up display 1300. And that's not even everything. $27,000 with the options that this car has, and they told me at BMW that you can add more to the point where this list goes off the page.
That is how many options are available on this car. So what a coin. What a coin indeed. Let me look at it this way. This car right here, as it sits, is really just as luxurious as a Maybach 57, and it's about 200,000 less than the price of that. Some people like call on value.
$100,000m is a lot of money to spend by anyone standard. On the other hand, you get a sporting car built by drivers, but equally comfortable for the back seat passengers. And if you can afford this kind of luxury, pick one up, money back here.
Male Speaker1: This weekend WEPC TV.
Male Speaker2: What if you race like FTRs identity. So it's like, there was a president here.
Male Speaker3: And it has the quote with a question mark?

Male Speaker1: WEPC TV is brought to you by associate Intel. You Dream it. Asus builds it, Intel Inside.
