An expensive lemon
By VA BMW Owner on


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


I drove my 2002 745i for six months
before I finally was fed up with the
never ending updates/defects and traded
the car.

I quickly learned the iDrive system and
I have no patience for the whining
computer illiterate types who bought
the car and can't figure out how to use

This car had a never ending series of
bizarre defects and constant problems
that were repaired 2 or 3 times with
little success.

I also tired of the never ending series
of software updates and control module
replacements that required an average
of 3 days in the shop per round of

Best Features

Flawless engine, perfectly tuned suspension, excellent performance for a large sedan, extremely quiet ride on the highway, Logic7 sound system upgrade is worth the money.

Worst Features

BMW should do better quality control and test the car in Europe before they bring it to the U.S. full of software defects in a brand new, highly complex system.
