2002 BMW 7 Series Sedan 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
Purchased my 745i one week ago.
CONTINUAL battery problems (car left me
stranded twice in two days).
Nav system poor, phone has terrible
Dealer reported that the problems with
the nav system required a software upgrade.
Why didn't they check everything before
Maryland has a 7-day lemon law which I'm
taking advantage of ot of desperation.
Really bad for a $70+ car.
NO MORE BMW's for me.
A new Mercedes will be delivered to my
door on Thursday.
Maybe BMW should have waited one more
year beforw putting this engineering on
Sorry I didn't read these reviews before
wasting a lot of time hassling with the car.
Handling, styling, VERY bright
What the car COULD (and obviously is
NAV system, phone voice recognition
Multiple software bugs and updates.
A real loser.

I got the 745 brochure last year and
started to compare it against
s430/500. When the 7 arrived, my wife
and I spent countless hours test
driving the 2 cars. She was an MB
fanatic turned 745 convert. I suggest
test driving the 2 cars on the same day
(at least 3 times) and you will
definitely vote for the 7 everytime.
Glad we settled for the new 7.
- New technology (I really don't
understand the reported flaws because I
don't have any).
- Performance (a well kept tradition
- Imposing look.
DVD changer, TV at the back - just like
the euro model. This combination will
blow my kids away, while I enjoy
blowing my 7 into the wind.
