The new 745i with 19's

My friend brought by a 2002 745i the other night and we went for a cruise. It had 19's, and an ice cooler built in behind the fold down rear arm rest.

THis car is very impressive. For those of you who haven't been in one, it is like flying on British Airways in first class.

-Dim orange moodlighting showing off the peaks of valleys of the brushed aluminum of the console, door handles and any key areas that would need to be illuminated in a low light situation
-Massagers in the two front chairs. The massagers roll down your back and into the seat, the neck support also massages you.
-Lighted door handles
-I won't even begin to talk about the amazing i-drive system.
-Voice recognition
-An amazing 360 degree sensor system with active display
-The trunk opens and closes electronically and will not close on your leg.
-The doors if not shut all the way will shut by themselves.
-ice cooler behind the rear arm rest

And many more features but I just thought i'd name a few. OVerall, it would be the first car I would buy if I won a mil.

I've driven them before. Very impressive machine....Almost too much machine !
But I wouldn't buy one. There's too much chance that there will be so many problems with this car after 5 years or so.
->Too many gimicks....

I like simplicity. I like more old skool...hahaha

It's not an ICE COOLER... it's simply a compartment that lets the a/c duct keep it cool, not nearly enough cooling power for ICE. And 19's are too small for that bohemith! It definetly needs like 22" (see pic).

Why would your leg be in the trunk? Sounds like a Mafia-type option to me.....
