Win ex­ec­u­tive sta­tus with the BMW 7 Se­ries

The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

DUBAI: They prowl around tele­vi­sion dra­mas like pan­thers ready to strike. Whether the se­rial in ques­tion con­tains high-level cor­po­rate wheel­ings and deal­ings, govern­ment of­fi­cials trav­el­ling from one meet­ing to the other, or spies at­tempt­ing to re­main in­con­spic­u­ous among the metropoli­tan elite, the 7 Se­ries is an en­dur­ing pres­ence. The car's great­est as­set - it strad­dles the fine line be­tween el­e­gance and func­tion­al­ity. It is nei­ther un­der­stated nor over-the-top. Much like an Audi A8, or Mercedes S-Class, the BMW in ques­tion is among the top choices for the pro­fes­sional con­stantly on the move. It is a ve­hi­cle not only to be driven, but to be driven in.

We have to say, this is per­haps not the most hand­some 7 Se­ries there has ever been, but it is cer­tainly not go­ing to make your stom­ach turn. The edges es­pe­cially at the front have been rounded off a bit too much for our lik­ing, but the large rims still set the whole ve­hi­cle off nicely. It is in­side, though, where the real magic hap­pens. There's a say­ing in the in­dus­try, that what­ever in­no­va­tions are added to a new EClass Mercedes, will be­come stan­dard in ev­ery other car in the next five years. We think the BMW 7 Se­ries may have usurped that ti­tle. This car is full of gad­gets, and com­fort and driv­ing en­hance­ments that make its Dhs385,000 start­ing price jus­ti­fi­able. To be­gin with - ges­ture con­trol. If you're too con­cen­trated on the road and think­ing about the next board meet­ing, there's no longer a need to scrab­ble around look­ing for a but­ton to an­swer that im­por­tant call. Sim­ply cir­cle your in­dex fin­ger in front of the cen­tral col­umn and you can pick up the phone or change the ra­dio vol­ume.
