Review

I bought this car certified-pre-owned
with 36k miles on it. It is a blast
to drive and I get a lot of
compliments on its styling from
clients. I appreciate the fact that
it can hold three car seats across in
the rear. It has had two repairs in
12 months; new ventilation fan motor,
new fuel injection o-rings. This
would have totaled about $1,000
without the warranty. While this kind
of thing seems typical, and is
certainly not cheap, a used 740 has a
great overall value proposition.

Review

I have owned several BMW's, but this
is by far the nicest most pleasureable
one to drive. Maintaining it is worth
it since it has all the attributes of
a sports car and the accomodations of
a luxury sedan. Super for business or
family.


Best Features

There are too many! The CPT8000 phone and the integrated controls do it for me, along with the steering wheel controls.


Worst Features

Only thing I would improve on is dead stop acceleration. Otherwise it's a gem!

Review

It is an awesome vehicle, but it costs
to keep them going. I had the same
problem with the "check taillight"
alert. It is due to water getting in
the rear light assembly. Costs about
$300 to get both fixed.
This car really scoots and is very
fast and fun to drive. It's worth the $


Best Features

Handling: speed and sound


Worst Features

taillight assembly system

Review

This is an absolutely incredible
driving car, nothing can touch the BMW
driving experience. However, as
exceptional as this car is in driving
and performance it's equally
disappointing in it's reliability. My
car has been in the shop for so many
issues I can't recall them all. The
majority of the problems were fixed
under warranty but I had to have the
radiator replaced,new suspension
components, a complete new ignition
system ( this one was especially fun
since the car would not shut off with
the key completely removed from the
ignition,)along with just nagging
problems.


Best Features

performance, handling, stereo, styling


Worst Features

better quality
