what do you guys think? Is this a bad move?
I already gave you my honest opinion on this in the past!
The 745's all of them from 02-05 had major engine problems, electrical, tranny issues! Not just me but various friends and family I know went through this!
We had a 2002 745Li, that spent over 80% of its time in the workshop, with the engine, tranny, Differential, Suspension, Electrical Components all being changed on thar car. I sold that years ago, as I couldnt imagine the horror of owning the 745 after warranty ended!
The 760 has been really good to me so far

Why do you think BMW extended the factory warranty on 2002/2003 7 series? To retain customer loyalty, because of the problems with the V8s!
I would never touch a preowned 745 without warranty, despite the warranty I would chose the 06-750 or go for the 760 as its a V12, different car, engine from the 745.
