What were they thinking????

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


I went from a 740 to a S430 and needed
to get back to the performance of a 7,
if your a real driver the S class won't
cut it. I was the first on my block and
the dealership for that matter to pick
up this car and loved it UNTIL the
problems started. Remote problems,
telephone keypad went, Nav. system from
5 years ago which stopped working all
together. The dealer can't fix all the
problems just patch them for now, all
in all the i drive system stinks. BMW
rushed this car to market before fixing
the bug and are lucky loyal customers
are still around. BMW's lucky it drives
like no other or they would certainly
loose market share to other companies.

Best Features

What knucklehead thought up the electronic shift system on this car,NEUTRAL WHERE,Why did they make it so you can only down shift on the wheel,USELESS,that genus should be fired. However this car drives like no other in its class. Hands down it's AWSOME to drive.

Worst Features

Thank goodness you don't need the i drive system to operate the car. BMW should stick to driving and performance and leave the fancy computer crap to the Japanese.
