ReviewThe idrive criticisms are generally overblown. The items you use 90% of the time are simpler on the 745 than on most cars (ie big knobs, easy to see and get to). The other 10% even gets pretty easy after several months. The bugs are a pain. They are all electrical except for the sound system which is so powerful that it causes the interior to buzz at certain pitches. But the drive is sweet and is worth the hassle.
Best FeaturesThe ride, by far. I also like the auto-park feature that puts the parking brake on when you stop at a light and disengages it when you step on the gas.
Worst FeaturesThe SMG on the 2002 M3 would have been a nice feature as well as steering wheel buttons that shift up as well as down (The 745 only downshifts). The navigation system should use a DVD instead of a CD (this one baffles me!).
