740 iL - A Great Touring Sedan
By Chuck123 on
Vehicle
1998 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan
Review
We have put 120,000 miles on our 740 IL. It as an awesome car; fun to drive for such a roomy sedan, great performance. An....it's not boring! We have had some small but expensive repairs. However, overall it has run like a ..well like a BMW. All repairs are expensive on a BMW. So if you can't afford $1,000 to fix a cruise control(etc.). Don't buy one. But they have a good warranty and I would recommend getting the extended one. I am on this site because we are trading up to a newer 740IL.
Favorite Features
Incredible performance for such a big car. The rear seat is like a limo. Comfortable for long drives but still fun to drive.
Suggested Improvements
Hate the styling on the new 745iL! It looks like a Japanese imitation of a German car. Need to rethink that, but given the cost of tooling I don't expect it to change. Otherwise it is a perfect performance touring sedan.
