What's not to like?
By Klaus is in the Haus on


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


My 2nd Beemer. 1st was the M
Roadster. The 745i is so much more
comfortable and almost as much fun to
drive. Most features well thought out
but some defy logic. (What were the
designers thinking when they put the
door lock/unlock switch in the middle
of the dash?) I-Drive learning curve
is steep but a wonderful concept. The
steering wheel controls and mode button
are all I need to shuttle between
Satelite, AM and 7 CD's without taking
my eyes off the road. I just wish they
would improve the navigation menus and
display CD track titles. The Sat radio
implementation is fantastic! I usually
leave this set to display artist and
track title. Hands free phone is nice

Best Features

I Drive. Handling and performance.

Worst Features

CD titles to display. Better data base for nav system ("Information" is incredibly weak.) and more intuitive menu setup. Move door lock/unlock outboard.
