Our second 745Li (dealer suggested buyback of the '03 has been superb. The seats are the best we have everr sat upon and offer heating, cooling, massage and adjustable support everywhere; 27 adjustments, I believe. The car has useful features most owners will never even discover! Indeed, cost of ownership is high due to depreciation. the iDrive took had a learning curve, but is as good or better than most systems developed since. It is the best system I have used while DRIVING. I dislike that the owner cannot program soem of the special features of the car, as the dealer charges plenty. The BlueTooth integration came about in march '05, and should be considered essential. The 745 is surprisingly fast while delivering excellent fuel economy for cruising in comfort. I have never found the handling limits, of this or any other BMW and recently had occasion for a radical avoidance maneuver at 75 mph that amazed me. I truly believe that virtually any other car would have rolled over or crashed somehow, but this big luxo-sedan gripped and recovered better than many sports cars would.
