1999 BMW 7 Series Sedan 740iL 4dr Sedan


Review

The ride is excellent but too many gadgets have had to be repaired: rear and front cup holders, rear glass window up and down, car phone electronics still do not work, glove compartment latch. I could go on, but the smooth ride is still the best.


Best Features

The seats are very comfortable and the ride is great.


Worst Features

The inside components: cup holders are not secure enough to hold drinks, even when they do work. Telephone worked very short time. Decided my cell would do just fine when BMW Service couldn't fix the intergrated phone.

1999 BMW 7 Series Sedan 750iL 4dr Sedan


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

None so far.

1999 BMW 7 Series Sedan 740i 4dr Sedan


Review

First Europen car I've owned. The last 3 cars we Lincolns(Two Mark VIII's and a 2001 LS). All had V8's but nothing to compare to the Beemer's performance and handling.I have the 740i with thw Sport package.


Best Features

Handling is super and gas milage is great for a 4400lb. car.


Worst Features

Tires? How do you keep the right ones on for the different seasons. The summer ones are bad in the winter and the winter in the summer. BMW needs manufactuer their own brand.

Review

I bought this car with 72k on it. Can honestly say that it is the greatest sport sedan land yacht around. The power plant could use a little more punch but is more than apt for the application. The DSC is a true lifesaver. I am 6 foot 6 inches and I can sit in the driver seat with my legs completely straight. Comfort is available in every seat. The rear seats are more like a nice leather couch. One thing that was added were wheels from the new 745. The 18" wheels have helped the performance around corners.


Best Features

Comfort, stature and true driving pleasure.


Worst Features

Premium sound is too light on bass to be called premium. There is more than usual interior body panel sound. Seems like radiator issues are common.

Review

Best option BMW NA made available is the Sport Package on the 740i. With a short wheel base, tighter springs, bigger tires (vs. L), etc; this is a big car that feels much smaller. Never a problem in corners, this car inspires confidence at speed and has a standing still presence that is hard to match.


Best Features

Acceleration from a stop or at highway speed. This car is not drag racer, but delivers smooth and instant speed on request. The 740i is also the safest car I have ever experienced. With DSC you can't get yourself in trouble.


Worst Features

The BMW standard, better cupholders, not enought bass for a "high end" system. AM reception. Many nagging little problems; O2 sensors ($$), sunroof motors, PS hoses, hood alarm sensor. If you buy a used one, pay for the Certified Pre-Owned Warranty. You will use it!
