2011 BMW 7 Series
The 2011 BMW 7 Series , are the rocks on which large luxury sedan market have been built on. Each can be classified in its own manner – the S-Class as traditional luxury and A8 as contemporary sport.

Qualms over the complicity of its recent redesign and complex computerized functionality have cast a shadow over 2011 BMW 7 Series clearly charting a dividing line between those that love and those that loathe it.
Automatically guided by the direction of the steering wheel, the car’s enhanced headlight system illuminates the road ahead more clearly, helping the driver to identify objects or obstacles in the car’s path that could otherwise go unnoticed until too late. The other visible change is the jump to a larger optional wheel and tire package. Now 20-inch light alloy wheels with lattice-shaped ‘Y’ spokes wrapped in 245 width tires up front and 275 width in back.
BMW modified the audio interface too. Now it’s more intuitive, needing fewer levels to reach important functions such as radio presets, while making it easier to personalize sound settings. Beyond this, the onboard system remembers the last entered preferences before being parked. When restarted, for instance, the car automatically goes back into the sport or comfort suspension setting – which ever was previously selected.

Detecting the car’s relative humidity, the car’s air conditioning system is automatically activated to reduce the humidity.
