2002 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I was amazed on the power and smooth acceleration of this car. It has much more power than any lexus I have ever driven. The interior is very roomy and comfortable. I would not buy any other luxury car. The speed of this car is shocking...


Best Features

Performance, Handling, styling.


Worst Features

Larger trunk opening. Other than that it is perfect.

Review

I've had the vehicle for over two weeks, and it's been a joy to drive. The power is scary at times - technology is like nothing you've ever seen! Exchanged the 19 inch alloys for chrome and it sets it off!! Comfortable ride, although the Pirellis do not ride as comfortable as Michelins. Totally satisfied so far.


Best Features

Ride, power, attention getter!


Worst Features

Using iDrive can distract you easily. Voice activation makes the job easier.

Review

An old timer with BMWs, I have owned 7 series since 88. I love the car and enjoy driving it. I have taken different 7s on interstate trips and have enjoyed the "Ultimate driving machine". BMW is ahead of the time and has always had some "technical issues" with their "1st year" model on 7 series due to complex electrical systems and components of the vehicle. The dealerships are very aware of the adjustments and have always tried to repair the defect. Part of owning a toy like this is to understand it would need maintenance and some TLC.


Best Features

The controls on the steering wheel and "Auto Park".


Worst Features

Make the I drive easier to operate for setting the radio stations. Once all the features are set, then it is easy to operate, however to set the A.M and F.M station is a bit confusing.

Review

BMW should send this car back to
Microsoft. The i-drive is worthless.
In theory, it is a good idea, but in
practice it sucks. Do you know you
can't listen to the radio in the car
when parked for more than 15 minutes?
The whole computer system has to stay
on and it drains the battery. The CD
has almost no functionallity. It
forgets where it was the last time you
had it on everytime. The voice
recognition is useless as it takes so
long to do anything. The navigation
system takes you to the wrong address
by making bad assumptions (and not
telling you about it). Overall, it is
a disaster and I will never touch a
BMW again. (I bought this model when
it came out and have suffered with it
for 3 years.)

Review

Mechanics such as engine/trans response
is great. The breaking is also great.
The radio had be replace three times.
he sound quality is not what I
expected. The Lexus 450 which I've
heard and my S500 have a far superior
system for the money. Frankly, the I
drive is not good. Ease and function is
poor. The tilt/telscoping wheel could
come out further and down. Mercedes has
a much more comfortable seat but the
beamer is a rockect. Some of the
interior features are "cheap" for the
money. Much better in the cadillac,
lexus and acura. BMW should take some
hints from them. Overall interior look
is very nice compared to other models
in the same catagory.


Best Features

Like a rocket. Disengage the DSC, smoke the tires and away you go. What a rush. Almost no brake fade in corners. Excellent to drive!


Worst Features

Interior comfort could be improved. Update interior lights especially on sun visors. Mabe a wood steering wheel. Improve the radio sound. Improve the tilt/telescopic wheel.
