Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.

Why you should buy the 2008 BMW 750Li: You're a pop star, Eastern European mobster, an NBA player or a 40-year-old lawyer that hits on college girls. You want a status symbol. You have no idea what an E38 is.
Why you shouldn't buy this car: The only thing you use your computer for is checking your e-mail. You have a bad hip. You signed the "Fire Chris Bangle" petition. You loved your old E38.

At nearly what I paid for my house, it seems like a bad deal, until you realize that it has 360 more horsepower than my house. Then it seems like quite the value, no?
