1998 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan

Review

I've had the car for 4 months now and have put 7,000 miles on it already, including a 3,000 mile cross country road trip. Ran flawlessly, in the flatlands, in the mountains and in 115 degree desert heat. Never changed the temp from 72 degrees and was comfortable no matter the outside temps. I've had some work done since owning, but all under warranty. This is my second 7 series. My first was an 88 735i. It had 150,000 miles on it and I put another 85,000 on it. Never had drivetrain problems. I'm a huge fan of these cars. I'll probably get another in about another 100,000 miles.

Favorite Features

Ride, power is available in all rpm ranges, great sound system, very good looking car. I get looks every time I drive it.

Suggested Improvements

Cup holder is weak and not in a good location. Can't work temp controls with drinks. Needs a hand brake vice the foot emergency brake.
