Love the ride, but hope it lasts

1999 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan
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
