This car is unbelievably good. Has
awesome power, excellent build quality,
wonderfully comfortable power
seats. iDrive is no big deal, but
setting radio stations a pain. Nav
system is behind the times (need DVD
system, which other BMW's except 7 will
get for 2003). Has been back to dealer
for software problems three times, but
dealer is really interested in fixing
problems and has always had loaner (7
or other). Overall, quite pleased.
Much better car than my previous 2 7
Seats, power trunk and door closers,
stereo, phone (big improvement over
other 7's), POWER and HANDLING
I got the 745 brochure last year and
started to compare it against
s430/500. When the 7 arrived, my wife
and I spent countless hours test
driving the 2 cars. She was an MB
fanatic turned 745 convert. I suggest
test driving the 2 cars on the same day
(at least 3 times) and you will
definitely vote for the 7 everytime.
Glad we settled for the new 7.
- New technology (I really don't
understand the reported flaws because I
don't have any).
- Performance (a well kept tradition
- Imposing look.
DVD changer, TV at the back - just like
the euro model. This combination will
blow my kids away, while I enjoy
blowing my 7 into the wind.
