2004 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is my 4th BMW and by far the best.
I also own MB E class but I like the
745i better. The computer display could
be improved to a more logical layout.
It has too many things all over the
place and could be organized in a more
meaningful way. The parking distance
and navigation system did not appeal to
me that much. The performance and the
head turning factor is tremendous.


Best Features

Performance and head turning appeal. Great sound system.


Worst Features

Pass on the parking distance and navigation system. XM or Sirius should be standard.

2004 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I was hesitant to trade my 2001 740iL
for the newer model (E65) after
reading about all the issues with the
2002 and 2003 model years. The
leasing incentives were just to good
to pass up so I made the move. In a
word, I'm thrilled. This car is more
nimble, quicker, handles better,
brakes better, and rides better than
my 2001. I'm still not crazy about
the styling, but I'm willing to live
with it to get all the other
improvements. My 2001 was in the shop
5 or 7 times in the first 6 months for
minor issues. I've had this car for 2
months with zero issues and I'm really
picky. I think they have the issues
resolved for the 2004s...joe


Best Features

Brakes, transmition, active suspension, and the performance


Worst Features

I don't care for the dash, the silver painted plastic in the interior.

2004 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased a 2004 silver metallic 745i
with a phone that won't activate. The
dealer give me a new one and it works
now. Stereo is great but don't have XM.
Haven't tried Sirius yet. Seats are
very comfortable and am finally getting
used to all the controls. I like this
car.


Best Features

Body style and mechanicals


Worst Features

XM or Sirius should be standard feature on a car like this.

2004 BMW 7 Series 745Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

When my lease on my Mercedes S430
expired I wasn't sure on whether or not
to get another one. I drove the 745Li
and fell in love. It handles like a
dream and extremely powerful. But I
cannot compare the comfort to anything
I have ever sat in before. I got the
comfort seating package and I almost
want to sleep in this car.


Best Features

Many features. Comfort seating is a must.


Worst Features

Just plan on keeping the Owners' Manual next to you for the first two weeks.
