2002 BMW 7 Series Sedan 745Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

If you don't own one get one. The 2002 745Li is the best BMW that BMW has built. Technology is great but get the computer reprogrammed while still under warranty. This car is better built than the new ones. It turns heads like you would not believe and is one cool machine to drive.


Favorite Features

Interior is like a command center and conveniently engineered drives. Like a dream with plenty of power when you get down on the gas. Blows the hinges off a Lexus and a Mercedes.


Suggested Improvements

Kick panels for the doors have a tendency to get dirty from shoe marks would be better if they used black instead of tan for the tan leather interiors.

2002 BMW 7 Series Sedan 745Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I have a BMW 745li that the transmission was replaced at 20000. If I drive it now and turn the car off it may not go in gear for at least an hour. It will start but not move. BMW dealership could not tell me the problem. The car is still under 100000 but no longer under warranty because of the year. I would like to know if anyone else has this problem. Any repair suggestions?


Favorite Features

The car is beautiful and roomy. It runs smooth when it runs.

Review

IDRIVE IS IMPOSSIBLE. NEEDS REPROGRAMMING EVERY FEW MONTHS AND THEN VERY DIFFICULT TO OPERATE. INTERIOR TRIM IS CHEAP PAINTED PLASTIC AND PAINT CONTINUALLY PEELS OFF. HAVE USED TWO DEALERS TO SERVICE AND BOTH ARE WELL BELOW PAR FOR LUXURY DEALER. HAVE ALREADY GOTTEN NEW 2004 JAG VANDEN PLAS AND LOVE IT. NO COMPARISON!!!


Favorite Features

INTERIOR ROOM NAD ROAD HANDLING


Suggested Improvements

GO TO INTEGRAL COLOR INTERIOR TRIM AND GET RID OF IDRIVE. ALSO IMPROVE DEALERS.

Review

I expected to be driving a 2001 S600 or maybe a Lexus two months ago. But after test drives I found nothing comes close to the 745Li in comfort (luxury seat pkg w/ massage), and sheer pleasure to drive. The car does everything I ask of it. The iDrive is not as intuitive as it could be but there is often more than one way to do something eg change radio stations/CD to radio by voice, a/c by dash buttons, etc. Once I got a couple of free hours to read the manual w/o the usual kid and other distractions it was fairly easy. The 6yr/100k mile warranty was appealing as well. I do wonder why BMW discontinued the infinitely variable intake manifold in the 2006 745s.


Favorite Features

The sheer joy of driving it


Suggested Improvements

More seat adjustment and climate options/controls for rear passengers, rear cooler and steptronic in US 745s
