I have had my 2002 745i for a year and and half and I must say I enjoy it more and more each day. Handling is precise, ride is firm but smooth, looks - it still turns heads! The iDrive is fun once you get used to it - it can be a showpiece for passengers not used to computer oriented commands. No mechanical issues, full warranty until late '08 - I couldn't ask for more!!!
Interior, color (Jet Black), ride, strong engine, wide rims and tires, attention getter!
Telescopic steering wheel needs to adjust automatically when you turn the car off. I have to manually move the steering wheel in order to get out of the car comfortably. I'm a tall person, so that would help.
