The 2003's were most certainly a major headache. The first year of that body style, that engine and all new electronics. Combine that with technicians who have to learn a whole new system and that spells trouble. In 2003, there were so many weird problems with the 745 that even BMW's "masters" couldn't figure them out... even the designers were standing around scratching their heads. The first 745's out were completely shutting down on the highway, not starting, running rough... you name it and customer's cars were sitting in the shop for days, weeks and months.. resulting in many buy backs. I don't know how much that bmw has corrected on the 04's but from what I've been told, they are nowhere near as problematic as the prior year. I think only minor problems (as with all bmw's) are seen now. I would certainly buy the 04 over the 03.
