I'm totally in love with this car. Driving has never been such a pleasure - or
this comfortable. You could drive for seven hours straight, and still feel great.
The ride is incredibly smooth. BMW has made the 740i with no wasted
space - intelligent use of every inch. Car handles much better in 4th gear
(sports handling) - noted some rear end slip in normal drive gear (economy).
Managed to find a beemer with rear headrests (my kids are tall) - very rare
in most models. Not cheap to maintain, but neither were my last three
Volvos. Worth the money. I'm told this car will easily go to 300,000 miles, if
well maintained. Life is good.
On-dash computer with 'code' (lockout of engine functioning, even with the
key, until you re-input the code); plus avg. mpg/mph calculator. Rear
passenger air vents. Storage in every door armrest. Seats adjust beyond
belief. Tons of leg room, even w/ front seats far back.
Desperately needs cupholders. Rear seat could fold down when lengthy
storage is needed. Steering wheel is too skinny.
