2003 BMW 7 Series Review
W. Michael says:
Nice style, crunched up dials on dash, noisy engine and road noise. Not great resale and engine longevity compared to a Lexus. Short leg room in back seat and small trunk that the 2003 Lexus.

Family Car Ranked 2003 Lexus LS 430 better.
"I could go on and on matching each car, but there is a gigantic amount of appearance as well as interior size/control than BMW. Much better name related to the public."

Impressive — Car is very fast and handles very well even with custom rims. But this car has a lot of maintenance issues due to advanced technology that BMW was not ready for. This car is very well made for a 2003 model.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Super fast and aggressive looking

Cons: High Maintenance Costs

A Lot Of Electrical Problems And Very Pricy To Fix — Cost of Repairs and the fact that you have to go to BMW for every thing their labor rate is 100 hour can get price radio sunroof in the car when out in this car in a months period and over 2200 to fix

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks Good Drives Great When Working

Cons: Price of Repairs

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The best ever

Cons: much electric that can fail with time..

03 745i —

This car has a lot to offer. Style, fun, comfort, options and a lot more than you'd want out of a car. Being at the top of the BMW class it does not let one down after he/she had to dig deep (really deep) into their pocket to get one. Although, the one I drove was the lowest at the top (760Li being the 'best'); this one wasn't a let-down at all. Having features such as one-touch start, suction doors, LOTS of leg room, and the usual massage power/leather/wood and navigation (except bigger); I really enjoyed the interior. From the outside this car is a promised attention-getter. With it's bi-xenon, projector head-lamps you'll be sure to notice one driving down the road. As far as the ride goes, it was fairly comfortable for a luxury. (For a normal car it is very comfortable but luxury cars are supposed to go that extra mile for the comfort, which this one stopped at about 1200 meters). Handling and braking is something BMW could work on with this one. Expect cost of maintenance to be "up-there" with all it's German parts. However, to it's German counterpart (Mercedes-Benz), after much research and experience I have found that BMW's are far cheaper to maintain. Gas mileage isn't TOO bad with it's 4.4L V8. Picks up and goes, but if you're usually in a big rush, I'd recommend the 760Li with it's V12 and over a 100k price tag. Overall a decent car. I've always been more of a MB guy but I don't think anybody can say no to a 745...even Rick 'Rowss'. (See lyrics for Hustlin' by Rick Ross).

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Design exterior/interior, options, ride, gas mileage (for a v8).

Cons: Could turn the plastic usage notch a bit, handling/braking, power could be better.

Bmw 745 — I love everthing and hate nothing, quality is amazing, performance is amazing. The interior is luxurious. Girls love it. Ownership is expensive but it is worth it, the car zooms from 0 to 60 in a heart beat. The End

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Excellent Luxury Car To Own — >> acceleration is very smooth, but might be too smooth for drivers who likes that sudden acceleration feel. >> handling is great despite the large size of this car. >> iDrive is a bit outdated for the current tech, but that is a given for tech these days. >> long drives with this car is great, I've taken this car to Vegas several tmes, ranging from 3hr to 5 hr drives each time, drives were great each time. >> very spacious even with 3 adults seated in the back. >> trunk space is so-so as this car is not really for hauling a bunch of stuff from costco. >> steering wheel is light, auto trunk open/close button, car door sucks in..., i love all that old ppl tech on this car!

Pros: smooth accelration, excellent handling, spacious

Cons: drinks gas like crazy, motion sensor response lags 1 sec at times.

Speedy Tank — this car is loaded so full with electronics it is almost too much for a car. the sound system is excellently balanced and has enough bass to satisfy me (immaculate quality), the leather is awesome.

Pros: great turning radius for a car with its wheelbase and length. very powerful (i have the 325
horsepower engine) and it get up and go when you need it to

Cons: long car, wide car (hard to park), touchy gas pedal (because i have the 325 horsepower
engine in it)
