Great ride but I-Drive needs work

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

Review

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!

Favorite Features

The ride and the looks. Best seats of any luxury sedan I've tried. Tall guys will be comfortable. Great audio sound!

Suggested Improvements

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!
