Great ride but I-Drive needs work
By Klaus is in the Haus on
2004 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
I test drove them all and the BMW won
the ride derby. No complaints there
but the I-Drive interface needs work.
The controls are not intuitive and this
from a computer programmer! Be
prepared to spend hours figuring this
out. Audio controls are really
minimal - e.g. no CD track titles, no
fast forward, no random across multiple
CD's. Page numbers in index of owner's
manual are almost all wrong!
The ride and the looks. Best seats of
any luxury sedan I've tried. Tall guys
will be comfortable. Great audio
Improve the icons and instructions on
displays for I-Drive. Upgrade the CD
control features beyond bare minimum.
Proof read the owner's manual. GET THE
SIRIUS SATELITE RADIO INTO THE 2004's!
