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


The 7 Series is a truly great car.
After owning 4 other 7s, I believe I
can speak with some authority. Whenever
a review is written, all aspects of the
car are praised except the styling and
the IDrive. The styling is a matter of
taste. But, for all the 7s I have
owned, this one gets the most positive
comment. It is the true definition
of "Road Presence". IDrive is an
initial attempt to provide extensive
information and operations into a "user
friendly" interface. True, it takes
some getting use to, but, once learned
it provides all the information and
control a person requires. One does not
have to access all its functions. But,
it is good to know you can.

Best Features

The soul of the car - 0-60 in 6 seconds, nearly flat handling, well weighted steering and truly linear braking. The comfort seats (optional) may be the most comfortable and supportive I have ever experienced. And yes, the styling. After owning it for over two years, I enjoy the positive comments.

Worst Features

Despite its cutting edge technology, BMW is still far behind in the integration of its cellular phones. It is time to go "bluetooth". Placing the CD cassette in the dash may be handy, but BMW has eliminated the "shuffle" feature. The remote key only works when you are right next to the car.
