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

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Cockpit features are absolutely the best. The navigation system is cumbersome to operate and unreliable.

Suggested Improvements

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.
