This car is a lot of fun to drive. It
performs like a sports car but has the
roominess of a large luxury sedan.
But, the reliability problems make it
difficult to justify owning. It's
almost at the point where I never know
when I turn on the ignition whether
the car is going to get me where I
need to go. Everything from body
mouldings that fall off while driving,
two failed catalytic converters, a
failed radiator, an airbag warning
light that comes on intermittently, an
intermittent warning that my rear
bulbs are out, and on and on and on.
Incredible performance, nice interior,
beautiful wood, lots of trunk space.
Old technology, useless on board
computer system, horrible reliability.
I have been very disappointed with this
car. I used to drive a 328 i and
absolutely loved it. Excellent
performance and exceptional
reliability. I assumed upgrading to a
740i would be a wise move. Was I ever
wrong! I've had this thing into the
shop at least 4 different times in the
past year. It also stranded my family
hours from home after the water pump
blew. Numerous electrical problems as
well. Never EVER again will I buy a 7
series BMW .
Luxurious and very stable comfortable
drive. Lots of power to spare.
RELIABILITY. When you spend this kind
of money you at least deserve the same
reliability as one gets from an average
priced Japanese vehicle. My old Nissan
MAxima was far more reliable than this
