1999 BMW 7 Series Sedan 750iL 4dr Sedan


Review

A great car I am sure when new. Bought in 2009. 10 yrs old. Main module computer replaced, radiator, air-cond, headlight, deadpixels, worst, unfixable petrol smell, told a leak is there and the seal replacement is expensive. Great to enjoy it but when comes to maintenance, well, you know... I make sure I get the best out of it before my bankruptcy if I keep it. Once in a lifetime experience, may even get another one when the right encounter occurs. What a love-hate relationship!


Favorite Features

All the standard features normally classified as option in the other 7 series.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability, reliability reliability!!

Review

Bought @ 50K miles for $29K out the door. Needed major service, thrust rod bushings & sway links. After $2,100 all good. Since then: battery x 2, climate control fan motor, radiator repair, tires, repair hood latch, replace oxygen sensors, new front pads & rotors, new electronic thermostat, 2nd major service, added new center armrest & ashtray coin tray, replaced cup holder & console wood trim, replaced outside mirror pass. side, replaced map light rear pass. side, replaced two side windows pass. side & rear driver side, several scheduled maintenance visits & replaced one ultrasonic parking sensor. I may be missing a few things, grand total $13K. Present mileage 100,400. BMW: Break My Wallet.


Favorite Features

Seamless power delivery, phenomenal suspension, handles like butter, snob appeal, great creature comforts, still rivals cars 8 years later, little details in the programming and options too many to mention.


Suggested Improvements

Make parts that last. Electronics & mechanicals should last longer on a $92K car.

Review

Great, great car, big comfortable, gets 23 mpg at 75mph. Problems have been with the cooling system, mostly raditor and associated parts. Next problem is the double-pane glass that discolors from separation between the two panes. Company will not replace, even though all had been replaced under warranty the first time. Expensive to maintain, hard to work on the engine because of tight spaces.


Favorite Features

Speed, handling, quietiness, comfort, sound of the exhaust, classic looks, stereo sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Improvement in the windshield and side glass, especially the side double-pane glass (the fog and air bubbles destory the looks). One size larger (wider) tires.

Review

What a smooth, quite ride. Although I purchased used, it feels and rides like a brand new car. If you can find a well maintained used one, go for it. Suprisingly, I get more than 20 MPG on highway driving fully utilizing its V12 power.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride quality, excelleration, and creature comfort. It come with every possible options we can imagine in a car.


Suggested Improvements

None so far.
