2003 BMW 7 Series Sedan 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I also got one of the early models.
Had tremendous number of problems. The
dealership could never fix them. I
just traded it in on a Mercedes S class
and they gave me $50K trade in due to
all the problems...they know noone
wants the car.


Worst Features

Don't bring a car out with half-baked technology.

2003 BMW 7 Series Sedan 745Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is our first BMW and we really
love it. We previously drove a 1998
Jaguar VDP and while it was a good
performer it lacked comfort and was
totally useless in the snow. Before
purchasing the 745Li we looked at the
new Jaguar XJ and the Mercedes S500. I
liked the style of the Jag and the
Mercedes better than the BMW but for
handling, features and comfort the BMW
came out leaps and bounds ahead. So
far it has been a great driving
experience!


Best Features

I think the the I-drive is fun and I also like the CD changer in the dash. The sun shades are also a nice feature.


Worst Features

I liked the sytle better when the roof line wasn't so rounded.

Review

I just leased a 745i and the interior
of this car is like nothing I have ever
seen. Although the exterior takes a
little getting used to, the car is an
amazing ride. The fuel economy is
somewhat of a problem as every time I
fill the tank it costs me $50. However,
overall,this car is great


Best Features

Navigation, comfort of seats, roominess.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage & exterior lights

Review

The 735I in grey insisde has problems
with the plastic trim on the doors. The
color peeled of for no aparent reason.
I recomend any new buyer to pay for the
extra special fornt seats. The standard
seats are not as comfortable and the
hight of the head rest cannot be
regulated at will.
The car drives beautiful even at very
high speeds 120mph+. However, I nted it
has a tendency to skid in very tight
curves, the type you found in European
mountains.


Best Features

The computer knob is fun to use and quite easy once mastered. Great conversation piece. However, the radio is cumbersome to use.


Worst Features

Front seats are not as comfortable as previous 735. An altimiter and compass can be useful. Glove compartment too small. Air conditioning knob inside arm rest compartment should work the other way around. When you insert bottles you risk moving the knob and turning off the air flow.

2003 BMW 7 Series Sedan 745Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The much maligned iDrive is a marvel.
It has a learning curve of course. It
combined with the active cruise control
make for a pleasant and SAFE vehicle
with performance and handling to set
the standard for all other cars.


Best Features

Interactive speed control


Worst Features

Exterior styling could be improved, but it looks just great from the inside.
