About 6 years ago my husband bought me the 2001 740i.
I have put over 75,000 mile on it in 6 years and when I reached 210,000 miles I decided to give it to my son and go buy a "new" car.
Not because I needed to as my "baby" still looks and handles and runs like a brand new car but I do alot of driving and thought a newer car would be more reliable on long trips. Well I looked at all the newer model Bimmers, test drove them, kicked the tires, walked around the outside, sat in the back seat....and guess what? Forget the new car. I bought a 2001 BMW 740iL with 85,000 miles on it!
I loved the 740i...I adore the 740iL!
It is luxury to the max. It is roomy, quiet, it has GUTS, it handles like a dream, my favorite part is the way she takes a curve!!
I will never buy a new car...I am going to baby this one so I can keep it forever. My only complaint is the flimsy cup holders!
Otherwise this car is peerless! You get what you pay for and this car is worth every penny. New this car cost 65,000 and 12 years later it's still worth 10,000 and it still looks brand new inside and out. That speaks volumes about it's quality and workmanship
