1998 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan

Review

Over the last 12 years I've owned a 528i and then briefly owned a 2004 M3 (what a machine that was) and for the last couple years I've owned a 98 740i with a Dinan package. Amazing deep blue car that is a joy to drive. The problems just started after about 106K miles...oil leak, spark plug issue, heater quit working, power steering leak...ugh. Just got a call from the shop wanting more than $4K to fix it all. I feel the car is a beautiful car but freaky to spend this much all at once. I just put brand new tires and brakes 6 months ago as well. All in all...I haven't driven a car I like better except for the M3...another story...just make sure you are aware that the big 8 cost more to fix.

Favorite Features

I love the look. It's stately while sporty.

Suggested Improvements

The wrap around plastic around the seats are ridiculous. I've had luck with the cup holders on this car. Just wish it would grow old gracefully.
