Are you getting the 7 series cause it's a 7? Or do you need a large sedan like this?

Keep in mind that the 2012 has a 6 speed. Get a 550i, in my opinion it is better than the 7.

Lighter.
Smaller.
Quicker.
Nimbler.
Big Enough.
Better mpg.
Looks better.
As luxurious as the 7 if equipped with individual package.
Has all the tech of a 7.
Cheaper.
Slower depreciation.
2012 550i has an eight speed ZF.
Cheaper insurance.

I personally wouldn't even buy a 550i. 535i is perfect.

AMG C63 done deal!
i Love how this thread goes from a guy asking for help on deciding between 2 very specific 4 door sedans and this pops up. To answer you question 2012 750 over the 2008 B7. if you are looking into other options I own the 550 and have driven the 750 multiple times, never a B7 though and would assume the driving experience is on a whole different level, but for me 550>750 in driveability, looks, mpg, IMO looks, and yes they can be very well equipped. I am just not a fan of buying a 6-7 year old car that is rare that it sounds like you would be driving daily. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions regarding the 550. I personally love it and don't have the need for anything bigger.

Yeah but he stated that his interest is in 2 specific cars. A C63 is way different then a 7 series..

The Alpina is a special version of an older generation car. Do you have any idea how expensive the Alpina wheels are? Just get a new 7-eries and enjoy the ride, because if you don't know whether to get a base 7-series or an Alpina, you're probably good with a base car. Maybe go with the LI if you're feeling particularly frisky.
