Having owned a 750il and a 840ci, and
now with a '03 760 li, I feel I can
speak to BMW cars. I've owned S class
Mercedes between then. The '03 760 li
has been a near disaster since delivery-
- out of round tires,engine hesitation
and cut outs. This problem will show up
on most new 7 cars eventually. The pre
9/03 760 productions don't even have
the ability to have satellite radio
installation (or retrofit)-- an asinine
oversight in a car of this price. As
I've said with the V12 BMW's- when they
run right they are a dream, when they
don't they are a melting dreamsicle.
Cockpit features are absolutely the
best. The navigation system is
cumbersome to operate and unreliable.
BMW- Get your software engineers to
update throttle control modules
immediately. To date there is no
available software update. The euro
car settings are not working in the US.
