1994 BMW 7 Series Sedan 740iL 4dr Sedan


Review

I drove this 94 old body 740il from 130,000 to 170,000 with no issues. The body and finish look new (thanks BMW). The chrome perfect. Body rubber is pliable. Plastic door handle seals and BMW badge aging are the only blemish - both cheap replacements. Fuel economy is still 24 mpg on the highway - unreal for a 14 y V8. Build product quality on this 740il is superior to the 200x year MBs I shop for. I run 10% ethanol without a problem at 148 mph - no problem - it was in its element. Starts immediately - engine is smooth and quiet. Parts prices are not high and low maintenance you can do all yourself. Best car ever made? It just might be.


Favorite Features

Durability, economy value for price, build quality, quiet ride, power to pass, smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Replace the flex drive cable system for the power seats with something that does not shorten up. Only an $8 repair but takes time.

Review

I bought my car used with a mileage of 75,000. This is the best car I have ever had. I love to drive this car especially on freeways because it have a lot of power in it. It's very comfortable to drive no matter how far your going. I love the engine its very reponsive, have a lot of power and very quiet. I love the looks, the projector headlamps to the roller sunblinds. This is the best BMW 7 series ever made.


Favorite Features

Every feature it has I love it from the projector headlamps, autoadjust sidemirrors when you shift into reverse, heated seats, servotronic, raintronic, to the roller sunblinds.


Suggested Improvements

It doesnt need any improvement.

Review

I like the car a lot, but this one (year and model)is susceptible to an engine problem created by certain additives in US gasoline. The additives pit the cylinders. The engine needs to be replaced and is not fully covered by BMW.


Suggested Improvements

Add cup holders

this is the most awsome vehicle i have ever owned. Its a bit slow off the line but onece its moving (hold on) drives and handles like its glued to the road If you can afford to maintain and repair this beast it is truly the ultimate driving machine this one has 145000 miles and still looks new


Favorite Features

smooth engine and transmission drives and handles exceptionally well


Suggested Improvements

extremely high maintnance costs replacement parts must be made of gold for what they cost
