1998 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Incredible performance, nice interior, beautiful wood, lots of trunk space.

Suggested Improvements

Old technology, useless on board computer system, horrible reliability.
