My 745i is a dream come true. Wanted a
7-series since 1986. Love it. Had a
problem with the autmatic trunk lock,
but that was fixed. Love the iDrive and
have pretty much mastered it after 2
hours of "playing." Did I mention this
car is now my hobby since I am devoid
of dough? It drives wonderful, handles
like my MGB from college days. I always
loved the new look. Everything I
expected it to be and more!!
Sport Package gives a super feel witht
he sport steering wheel and seats.
Sport suspension sticks to the pavement.
Picked the car up in Munich and it
founds its way through Germany, France
and Austria. Amazingly stable, smooth
and secure on the autobahn. Excellent
ride; quiet, comfortable. Very nble
for its size. Looked strange at first;
now looks stylish and distinctive, with
comments from strangers on what a
beautiful car it is. But mostly, the
joy is in the driving.
Navigation system, voice commands,
iDrive. These are fun gimmicks, but
the car qua machine is fantastic.
Make iDrive more intuitive; enlarge
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.
