1999 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan

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.

Favorite 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.

Suggested Improvements

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!
