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.
The seats are very comfortable and the
ride is great.
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.
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.
Smooth ride quality, excelleration,
and creature comfort. It come with
every possible options we can imagine
in a car.
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
Handling is super and gas milage is
great for a 4400lb. car.
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.
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
Comfort, stature and true driving
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.
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.
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.
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
If you buy a used one, pay for the
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty. You will
