I cannot find data on the QP's head room, knee room, hip room etc.. on the computer and the closest dealer is over 90 miles away. I will get in to drive one of these beautiful machines sometime soon, but I am curious what to expect inside. I drive a 740i now and the size is perfect. It's not an airplane hangar in the back like the Li or the A8. It is simply - enough room. I noticed the rear seats in the QP look very deep which would seem to equate to the rear passenger requiring less knee room (?). Is the driver's environment at all cramped?

Thanks for any input.

My curiousity is mounting...

Thanks for the replies

I failed to mention my 7 is a short wheelbase car with an M sport package suspension. It drives like a heavy 3 series. It can be provoked into oversteer in highway exit ramps. It really is something else. The E65 sport is not as viceral. BMW has (uncharacteristically) used the technology of hydraulic anti-roll sway bars in the new 7s to expand the comfort envelope without sharpening the sporting end of the pencil one bit. So, as much as I love BMW, I am looking elsewhere. Which is why I'm on this board. Can anyone comment on the rear seat ride quality. In my 7 the rear suspension is set relatively stiffer than the front to minimize understeer (and the rear tires are lower profile than the fronts). So the ride quality is noticably better in the front seat than the rear. Is this so with the QP?

Non car enthusiasts (about 95% of all people) expect an S class ride in my 7 and they often complain about the seat firmness and the ride. I wouldn't have it any other way. I have heard that the QP has a very tight ride on the rough stuff. Any comments on the sport package vs. non sport package QPs?

Regards,
DRP
