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


Review

I like top of the line large German sedans. For the part 15 years I have driven Mercedes and Audi. I wanted a car with performance, handling , and luxery that mede a statement - and was at the leading edge of design. This BMW fit the bill - no longer is it behind the big Mercedes in solidity, performance, and was ALWAYS ahead in handling. I love this car.


Favorite Features

Suspension. Overall feel; fit & finish; design is awesome (although I hated it at first)


Suggested Improvements

Would like the ability to unlock all doors from the driver's door controls. Please allow power to the garage door opener controls when the ignition is off. Fix computer bugs.

Review

This Car is amazing it handles like a porsche 911, (i have one, i would know...), is smooth and the power just seems to keep coming. Those who dont like it are just...not very sophisticated in their tastes!

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


Review

745LI ABSOLUTELY DRIVE LIKE A DREAM, THE CAR IS SO RESPONSIVE CONSIDER IT'S SIZE. BUT MOUNTING THE GEAR SHIFT BEHIND THE STERRING WHEEL IS WHAT REMINDED ME MY MOTHER'S OLD OLDSMOBLE. AND FOR A BMW WITHOUT THE ABILITY OF UPSHIFT IS NOT A TRUE BMW.


Favorite Features

ENGINE, TRANSMISSION, HANDLING, THE CONCEPT OF I-DRIVE


Suggested Improvements

MAY BE THE NEW SMG TRANSMISSION FROM M3 (CENTER CONSOLE MOUNTED LIKE THE NEW 5 SERIES)WILL BE A GREAT IMPROVEMENT FOR THE 2004 7 SERIES MODEL

Review

The new 745i Sport is amazing. Yes, the idrive takes a few trial and error experiences, but the basics like radio,cd,phone,navigator, etc. are all quite easy to use. There are so many additional things to do with it that you can continue learning some every day, if you wish. The performance, handling and comfort could not be better. I had a 740i Sport before and thought it was the best, and this has surpassed it by quite a bit. Not only is it impressive to drive, it's the most interesting and engaging car I've ever found.


Favorite Features

performance and handling. idrive convenience seats remarkable logic 7 sound system


Suggested Improvements

more pleasant sounding voice on the voice activation system

Review

I think this is a great car. Those who have whined about the iDrive in the reviews, either do not actually own the car or have never used a computer. The ride is great, comfortable seats, excellent build quality etc. This is my 2nd BMW.


Favorite Features

Great engine, easy to use controls, awesome ride with the sport package, great stereo.


Suggested Improvements

You have to buy it from a dealer...

2003 BMW 7 Series 760Li 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 6A)


Review

If youre having trouble with the 7 series you didnt get the right, I can see none of you got the AMAZING 760. The 760 is much much better than the 745. I have had no problems. The unique styling seems quite refreshing. I love the interior. The amazingly soft leather seats and the lusterous polished wood. Its amazing.


Favorite Features

The engine, interior, sound sytem.


Suggested Improvements

NONE, its perfect.

Review

Even better that my 740iL and Z3. Many previous reviewers scared me, but I took the plunge and the car is great - aperfect mixture of luxury and driveability.


Favorite Features

Premium sound system, idrive, quite ride.


Suggested Improvements

The voice response unit while very good, seems to misunderstand me sometimes (so does my husband, though)

Review

I've purchased a 2003 BMW 760Li in february, scince the first test drive, i have fallen in love with this car. I have driven many cars, including the mercedes-benz s-call, but none have proven to be as luxurius, as powerful, as reliable, or as great to drive.


Favorite Features

I really enjoy the idrive system. Everything about this car is perfect. BMW has really done a great job with the interior.


Suggested Improvements

I think this is a great car that only a few individuals will have the privlage of driving. I have no complaints about this car.
