2004 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Little things matter on a $70K vehicle and between the remote's slow response and poor range and the relatively poor snow and ice handling, I occasionally forget what I love about the car ...everything! ... I-drive requires some learning time but I disagree with the mags and Edmunds when they knock it. Driving should be serious work and instead of dangerous cell phone users and hair stylists wobbling all over the road, I'd like to see them focus on driving... which is what this car encourages, better than any of the 42 vehicles I've owned before it!


Favorite Features

responsiveness in every direction it can go .... perfect size ... sound system is superb


Suggested Improvements

improve cell phone, remote and traction control for inclement wather

2004 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

BMW seems to have a problem with fit and finish. I also own an 2001 x5. They have problems with plastic parts that fall off (small control buttons on the dasboard of the x-5, rocker panels on the 745) Also have a problem with paint peeling on x-5 interior door handles, and 745 rocker panels. The plastic is probably polyethelene if it is not heat treated poperly nothing will stick to it, that is probably the problem. However since I purchased the x-5 in 2001, and, the 745 in 2003 you would have thought that they would have fixed the plastic/paint problem by now.


Favorite Features

The only reason that I am still buying BMW is because of the ride, the fit and finish have really gone downhill.


Suggested Improvements

Pay attention to the little details!!!!

Review

I owned a 1994 BMW740i, and this car has given me some many headaches that i don't recommend anyone to buy it, and even less to buy it from VOB. Save yourselves a lot of aggravation and don't buy a BMW! My complaints were ignored repeatedly by VOB and by BMW of America.

Review

I have had the car for less than three months. The car has been in the shop for more than 10 days already due to electrical problems with the eye drive. THis is my 2nd 745i with similar problems.
