could be so much better
By Art Kubach on


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


BMW seems to have a problem with fit
and finish. I also own an 2001 x5.
They have problems with plastic parts
that fall off (small control buttons
on the dasboard of the x-5, rocker
panels on the 745) Also have a problem
with paint peeling on x-5 interior
door handles, and 745 rocker panels.
The plastic is probably polyethelene
if it is not heat treated poperly
nothing will stick to it, that is
probably the problem. However since I
purchased the x-5 in 2001, and, the
745 in 2003 you would have thought
that they would have fixed the
plastic/paint problem by now.

Best Features

The only reason that I am still buying BMW is because of the ride, the fit and finish have really gone downhill.

Worst Features

Pay attention to the little details!!!!
