Love the car, but hate the dealer repair capability. Must seek out and find independent quality repair site.

Review

Well I now own a '97 740 iL Artic Metlic Silver with 98K and really do like it. However, I had to put some money into it after I got it to fix a major problem: Cataly. Convertor which cost me $2,300 p/L. I also other repairs done that were under CPO warranty: Radiator, Elect.fan, new valve cover gaskets and a new int. sensor alarm. I hope I am done with repairs for a couple of years, other than oil changes. I am still happy I have this car because its my dream car and I think I have everything fixed that may go wrong in the future, but if I have any other major problems I will need to look else where.

Very fun car to drive, I always look forward to driving somewhere. It has a lot of power and a lot of options. It is the ulitmate luzury package. No car drive better than a BMW 740!

Review

While I'm impressed with the luxury, I'm not happy with the ongoing maintenance. This is the "Flagship" marquis of BMW. So then why so many problems? I've been an owner of Jaguar and I must say I've had fewer misques than with BMW. I enjoy the feel of the 740il, but think they could have done a better job with the overall quality of the vehicle.

If only it would start.

Review

What a dream to drive - if only I could get it started. I have only owned this car for 6 months and have had it in the shop 6 times. The battery keeps getting drained, the heater needed to be replaced and the cup-holder replaced twice. I know the service people on a first name basis. Not a good sign with a car that only has 28000 miles on it.

It has only been a short time, but from the first time with the car, my life has been improved. Not to mention the compliments from others. I am just completely taken with the car.
