General Comments:

Luxurious and comfortable car with beautiful lines.

It is just the right size. I felt that the 745li was too long.

The 745 is an electronic wonder. Had the 6 year, 100,000 warranty which expired January 2008. No problems with vehicle.

I am considering a 2009 750i. I would even get the same color - Titanium gray. People constantly approach me and compliment the color. I have gray leather with dark ash trim.

I previously had a 540I and swore I would never own a 7 series. Never say never. I fell in love after test driving a friends 7 series.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
