I would say don't buy a first year model, unless you are getting KILLER deal. THey always have bugs.

Stay away, 2002 is the worst year by far

My personal experience talking to a few 745i owners. Dont buy the 2002 - 745 lots and lots of problems computer issues. If you have a big bank balance and willing to go through lots of aggrevation then ok. Lots of recalls first year.

Go for the 2003 they had cleaned out most of the bugs. :)
