While I was at the "Ultimate Drive Event" this past thursday, I had the chance to test drive the 745i, and boy did i drive it. I'm not bother by the looks so much as the noisy engine when you floor it, unlike the old 740 which was much smoother. Then, there are the controls, for goodness sake, it'd be easier to fly a 747, lemme just say that it takes a rocket scientist to figure out the controls on this piece of S**T you first time around, and last but not least the the car did not feel as quick or handled (maybe it needs the SP) as well as the old 7. One last thing, the interior feels like you are in a someone's living room or in the middle of the forest, you pick, too much wood. Well that's all folks!
On a side note, the car that i couldn't get enough of, was the 540i wagon. What a piece!
