110K miles of first owner experience.
By Peter Judar on
1999 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan
Purchased this vehicle new at 74 miles with sport package and I can tell you everything about this car. You will replace the radiator like a clockwork every 35K miles, about $400. Transmission failed at 73k miles. Extended warranty covered all but $100. While I loved the sport package wheels, I got sick of paying $250 per tire every 17k miles, put 17 inch BMW wheels on with Michelins for $150 each now get 35k miles per tire with a way better ride, less the look, oh well! Still get 14/21 mpg city/hwy. Recently replaced both front rubber mounts/arms for $400. Car tracks and steers like new! Rear/right window regulator replaced $600. Fan blew up at 80k miles and went through belt/hood
Best car seats in the world! Awesome classic black interior. Quality leather. Heavy doors, makes you think you are in a tank. Smooth perfect ride/handling. Still enjoy a road trip even after 110k miles and look forward to another 110k miles with her. no current new car I am interested in.
Better aftermarket radiator that someone should bring out for all similar BMW vintages. Factory cracks every 35k miles. Cheap materials
