Exhilarating 740i M sport package
By AdrianA on
2001 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
Took delivery of a low mileage, (52,300) sport sedan, thanks to all the advise, blogs, concerns and messages from well-wishers who opined if I chose to indulge in the 7 Series cadre, I should pay considerable attention to the 2001, and more particularly the M Sport package. Being used to the size of the two 3er I own (90 & 94), the size is imposing and the MPG disastrous, to say the least. But once I sat in the "cockpit", which was a significant upgrade from the 3er, powered it on, quiet, and provided the ambiance to carry on a conversation at normal levels. I was impressed. The compromise for what it delivers in driving pleasure feels compensates for the not so good gas mileage. A delight
Bi-Xenon headlights, auto-rain sensing wipers, park assist, adjustable sport seats, 18" rims, lowered stance, black shadow-line, 282Hp feels like 400Hp. The Sports package is for the BMW enthusiast with class and decorum on one hand, thrill and control in the other in a well executed driving package
Cup-holders replaced with better quality, OBDII access panel be more sturdy. Other than that, a fine machine.
