BMW 7 Series The Ultimate Starship
By 7 Series Owner on
1997 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan
This is BMW's flagship sedan and it does not disappoint in any way. Power, comfort, styling, safety and technology are all present here. One can easily go from 0-60 in less than 7 seconds, and at high speeds feel as if you are going half the pace with room to spare. More fun to drive than Mercedes, or Lexus combined!! The feel is rock solid and it handles like the 5 passenger sports car it really is. Plenty of creature comforts and cutting edge technology even in the older models. I have owned several hugh end luxury vehicles, domestic and foreign and this one is the best of all. It deserves the title "Ultimate Driving Machine" - I just can't see or imagine myself in any other car at all.!!
Driving performance, ergonomics, reliability and solid feel. Handles like a car half its size. Nimble, quick and strong! Quiet as a theatre inside, you feel the experience of driving, not hear it all. Refined and distinguished, with proper care should live a long driving and owning life.
More attention paid to small ergonomics, like the infamous cupholder. Quality could have been greater here. The engineers must prefer driving to beverage consumption.
