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


Review

Excellent handling capability BUT Not fun to drive. Try down shifting with the steering wheel button and then figuring out what gear you are in while watching the road at the same time. Every service is a multi-day ordeal and there have been too many. Uneccesary complexity, the radio is basically non-functional outside of the pre-selected stations.A real problem if you are routinely in different reception areas.


Best Features

Handles like a BMW


Worst Features

One day service or get more help Make a usable radio I know how to work the computer and Simplify-don't like the multiple manipulastion to access the controls. Give more control to gear selection. The GPS system is not as accurate for directions as my previous 740.

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


Review

The voice activation doesn't work well and the electronics seem to need constant updating as the phone and navigation system don't always work properly. The steering has a vibration in the steering wheel until the low profile tires warm up, which takes about 8-10 miles of driving before this goes away. This is not what you should expect in a $70,000+ automobile.


Best Features

The car handles exceptionally well on all types of roads.


Worst Features

BMW needs to simplify the voice activation system and correct the faulty electronics as it relates to the phone and navigation system.

Review

I love this car and everything about it. It's fast, nimble, tracks around curves like a monorail,looks great,has lots of interior room and the seats are very comfortable. As for the iDrive, I learned those functions that I want to use, like the audio controls, in minutes, and I'm one of those types who still hasn't learned to set the clock on a VCR. I drive just fine without using the techno features I don't need or want to use.


Best Features

Power, comfort, great ride, quiet interior and tos of leg room, front and back.
