Utilizing Susn Koman Foundation facilities, I drove the 750i yesterday. After reading (now I find) many false reports in a number of automobile magazines, I expected a 30 minute or more indocrination on how to operate this particular model. Within 3 minutes the drivers door was closed by the instructor and I started and drove off with no difficulty. This is a great car with many new inovationsand it is a damned shame this bunch of babies whined to the point of almost ruining the sales of this particular model BMW. Sure, it takes a bit of practice to use the I drive knob, so what, in no time at all I figured it out and I am no mental genius and am older than most of you guys and gals. My opinion, sorry writers.
