2003 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


The idrive criticisms are generally
overblown. The items you use 90% of the
time are simpler on the 745 than on most
cars (ie big knobs, easy to see and get to).
The other 10% even gets pretty easy after
several months. The bugs are a pain. They
are all electrical except for the sound system
which is so powerful that it causes the
interior to buzz at certain pitches. But the
drive is sweet and is worth the hassle.

Best Features

The ride, by far. I also like the auto-park feature that puts the parking brake on when you stop at a light and disengages it when you step on the gas.

Worst Features

The SMG on the 2002 M3 would have been a nice feature as well as steering wheel buttons that shift up as well as down (The 745 only downshifts). The navigation system should use a DVD instead of a CD (this one baffles me!).
