I miss my 2001 740

2005 BMW 7 Series 745Li 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


I miss the gear shift. I miss the easy controls. I miss the aggressive style. The 745iL is engineered well, handles great and is comfortable. Unfortunately I don't feel connnected. The trunk looks like I'm transporting a coffin. I'm a computer guy and the iDrive especially the NAV is annoying. The phone hears me...sometimes. The say it a software problem. Unfortunately it's hard to reboot on the freeway at 65. Unless things change, this is my last one. PS I love renting a car when I bring it in for service. At 80K I probably don't deserve one !

Start all over again with the design. Bring back the the gaer shift Simpify the the I drive. Go to a Lexus or Infiniti training class to learn how to treat customers.
