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


I really enjoy this car except for having to take it in to get the latest computer malfunction fixed every few months. CONSTANT computer problems and other little things going awry, fortunately it's under warranty but I'd hate to think what the maintenance costs would be if it wasn't. Definitely not keeping the car past the warranty. Amazing handling for a car this size, I love all the bells and whistles, ultra comfortable, but the computer system is garbage.

Best Features

Handling, all the gizmos and features (maybe too many for its own good... too much stuff to break!).

Worst Features

2002 especially needs a complete overhaul of the computer. Reprogramming it every few months doesn't fix the problems for very long. Very frustrating for an $80k car.
