1997 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan

Review

Love the car, hate the car. Most beautiful car I've owned. A joy to drive, when everything works. Replaced 4 window motors, 1 seat motor, a radiator, 2 water pumps, an alternator, a drive shaft, a CD player, and dash read outs. The other day the exterior door handle just came off in my hand. This car has been maintianed by BMW and certified mechanics, yet the build quality work against the owner. It's a shame considering the cost of the car.

Favorite Features

Style. Handling, interior comforts, and surprisingly good mileage for a car of this size.

Suggested Improvements

BMW should admit to common fails and reimberse owners. Some of the these repairs are completely uncalled for, when you consider that we paid >$60K when new. Old Nissans I've owned have had better repair experience.
