1996 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 740 used with 65k mi. Have had two years and have loved car. Amazing comfort on highway. Huge back seat. Good handler. Amazing ride. Great seats, precise steering. Engine is quiet and smooth but could deliver more power. Car still looks great after 11 years. However if you buy one of these, be pepared to spend a lot of money to repair and keep it going. I've spent $3000 on maintainance and repairs in the past 30 months. I've purchased 2004 Lincoln LS V8 to replace BMW because tired of the big repair bills. Even though my BMW is 11 years old, it still is in many ways a nicer car to drive than the almost-new Lincoln.

Review

After trading a fairly new GS 430, I must admit I'm quite taken w/ my used 740IL. It handles every bit as well if not better than the Lexus. It accelarates smoothly coupled with generous torque. My only concern is the higher miles/reliability factors. So far so good.


Favorite Features

Accelaration, handling and road feel.


Suggested Improvements

Radio is poor at best and the car has some strange sqeaks...not a big deal.
