This is my second BMW. I have a '98 5 series which was the best car I had ever driven. Compared to the 740iL, the 5 series is very pedestrian. I have never driven a more responsive, agile and comfortable car. Its a true sports sedan. The interior, while not overly exciting to the senses, has a refined, rich feel. It has all the bells and whistles. The stereo is nice but not conducive to bass heavy music. Also, back up the Brinks truck when its time for repairs. If you can find a good mechanic, avoid the dealership. However, the real fun begins when you sit behind the wheel. A lot of power. I cannot describe the driving experience. You have to live it. Forget Mercedes, Lexus, Audi.
The power, handling, and suspension is impeccable. This car is a beautiful car thats great to look at. Huge trunk.
