This is the best car I have ever owned
dollar for dollar. It is truly a joy
to drive and ride in, despite what has
sometimes been reported in the news.
The I drive is a challenge to learn,
but once you read the manual it is easy
to use. The cabin is spacious and
provides ample room for both the front
and rear passengers of various heights
Interior and exterior design is
execellent. The sound system is superb.
Under the hood is a wonder for the car
The alloy wheels hold a lot of break
dust, so the rims always seem to look
dirty. There needs to be an
improvement in this area.
This is the first BMW we have owned
and we love it! We looked at the
Mercedes S class as well, but after
test driving the 745Li, we knew this
was the car we wanted to drive for the
next 10 years. The Idrive system is
overwhelming at first, but once you
learn the commands you need most
often, it is a breeze. More commands
can be mastered as you get more
comfortable with the car. They
provide a great CD that goes over
almost every aspect of the car. It
provides "real life" examples of how
to work everything in the car.
We love the automatic sunshades and
seat massagers. The sound system is
incredible. The power this car has
when accelerating is impressive.
This car has been in service over 40
days due to various problems including
misaligned dash boards, loose
components and numerous computer
problems (needed new radio, needed new
navigation syastem, etc)
