1997 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan

Review

We bought the car used and had to sink some money into it right off the bat, for items not covered by the seller's warranty. Wondered about the choice for the first year. Then the car settled down and we've had routine maintenance since. It's a joy to drive, city or highway, and it's a joy for passengers. If you don't keep up with routine maintenance, and replace things at the first sign of trouble, expect to sink a lot of money into repairs. We do routine maintenance, and change the oil frequently, and we've been very satisfied. We plan to run the car for ten more years at least.

Favorite Features

Adjustable, programmable driver's seat. The sound system is a marvel. And room, room, room.

Suggested Improvements

Had to replace driver's console -- that was a bummer. The electrical system seems a little shaky sometimes - - lights burn out awfully quickly. Would be nice if the CDs were in the cabin, not the trunk, for changing CDs while driving.
