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


Review

I extensively tested and researched the
Mercedes S500, Audi A8, the Lexus LS430
and the BMW 745LI. This car clearly
surpasses them all. Forget about what
they say that the command control is
confusing. I'm no technophile, but I
mastered it in less than 10 minutes.
This car comes with dozensmore features
than the Mercedes and is less money.
The Lexus is nice, but it is not a
beast on wheels like the BMW. I use to
teach Police Officers High Speed
Pursuit driving so I know performance
when I drive it. This car is simply the
best. It combines the best of
everything, luxury and high performance
into one cool package.


Best Features

Active cruise control, navigation system, command system, Logic 7 surround system, active headlights (great for curvy roads, awesome seats fit for a king,convience package...everything!


Worst Features

Make the A/C so you can control both driver and passenger temps with one control instead of individually.

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


Review

I've owned 1998 and a 1999 740il, an x5
SUV, and this 745IL exceeds all in
comfort, performance and luxury. It is
a fine driving machine. The i-drive is
a little difficult to get used to but
it provides all data and settings
required. If this were a hotel it'd be
rated 5 star..


Best Features

The door lock and flasher light switch has been moved onto dash from the console.. now the dog can't lock door or turn on flashers by stepping on them.


Worst Features

Simplify the i-drive.

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.

Review

Horrible experience. Salesperson did
not know her product. Car did not live
up to my expectations, check engine
light eternally on, engine misses at
25-35 mph. Service only temporarily
fixes problem then comes back within
days. BMW should be ashamed. Should
have bought a Lexus like all my
associates did.


Worst Features

Scrap it and start all over again.

Review

After driving all the contenders,
including the Jag XJ, Audi A8, LS430
and of course the Merc S, nothing
makes as strong a statement as this
one. Unbeatable drive and handling,
smooth, beautiful, kicks the hell out
of anything in its league. Only
qualms are there are still some
electronic glitches


Best Features

Looks, style, power, ride, make the statement if u have 75 - 85K to spend


Worst Features

in the first month I had to get the cell phone system fixed twice and the door window lock fixed once
