The drive is best of all the cars I
have owned and I have owned MB,
Infinity Q45 and Accura Legend. No
other car on this planet can compare
to the fun driving this car. After
this car I dont want to drive my MB
420E as it is so primitivr to & series.
Th i drive which is very intutive and
easy to use if one uses common sense.
The yellow caution flag unfurled
shortly after I took delivery of a 745i
in May, 2002. The clock lost time, the
sound system developed a roaring hiss
and the navigation system intermittenly
stopped working. The clock module, the
computer screen, and the navagation
system were replaced. The car lost
battery power once. Last autumn, an
engine malfunction developed. The alloy
coating the valve stems flaked off. One
cylinder was scored, so the ENGINE was
replaced! Did I mention a defective
ignition coil after 9000 mi? I think
the dealer did as best as possible. No
matter how much sugar you put on a
lemon, you are still left with a sour
taste in your mouth.
The iDRIVE concept, road-handling,
More attention to reliability of
hardware and software. More padding of
the driver's seat-bottom.
This is my 8th BMW. It is by far the
most unreliable one I have owned. Today
I had to drop it off at the dealer
after the ENGINE MALFUNCTION light came
on. The one thing I didn't expect to go
wrong in this car was the engine. I
guess the suspension is next.
