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