1999 750iL - 30 month review
By Scott on
1999 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan
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.
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.
Make parts that last. Electronics & mechanicals should last longer on a $92K car.
