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


Buying this car is an act of faith that
BMW is on the right track. The iDrive
gets easier with time, but there is no
excuse for the difficulty involved in
using and setting the radio (clearly no
person who was ever the driver of a car
thought this up). I had
the "disappearing radio settings"
problem that has, for unknown reasons,
corrected itself after six days. Car
is attention getter - it is much nicer
looking in person than it is in
pictures, and the extra length of the
Li makes it look less stubby in the
rear end. By the way, it is much wider
than the prior 740, need to watch

Best Features

Telephone keypad; center bin storage area; the cellphone is great compared to the one that used to come with 740. Ride is great although 19" wheels are a little "solid" on city streets.

Worst Features

Fix the radio so easier to use. Cannot stress enough what a pain this car is for valets and carwash - requires constant waste of time to teach strangers to use the car!
