1998 BMW 7 Series Sedan 740i 4dr Sedan


Review

I seriously considered a used lexus
before driving the 7 series bmw. This
98 had only 25K miles and was garaged.
However, it needed some deferred
maintenance and since has been
terrific. Elegant and muscular, it is
the perfect car for highway driving.


Best Features

Power, handling and classic styling. Heated steering wheel


Worst Features

Weak cup holders Sluggish dead stop acceleration

Review

I bought this car certified-pre-owned
with 36k miles on it. It is a blast
to drive and I get a lot of
compliments on its styling from
clients. I appreciate the fact that
it can hold three car seats across in
the rear. It has had two repairs in
12 months; new ventilation fan motor,
new fuel injection o-rings. This
would have totaled about $1,000
without the warranty. While this kind
of thing seems typical, and is
certainly not cheap, a used 740 has a
great overall value proposition.

Review

I have owned several BMW's, but this
is by far the nicest most pleasureable
one to drive. Maintaining it is worth
it since it has all the attributes of
a sports car and the accomodations of
a luxury sedan. Super for business or
family.


Best Features

There are too many! The CPT8000 phone and the integrated controls do it for me, along with the steering wheel controls.


Worst Features

Only thing I would improve on is dead stop acceleration. Otherwise it's a gem!

Review

It is an awesome vehicle, but it costs
to keep them going. I had the same
problem with the "check taillight"
alert. It is due to water getting in
the rear light assembly. Costs about
$300 to get both fixed.
This car really scoots and is very
fast and fun to drive. It's worth the $


Best Features

Handling: speed and sound


Worst Features

taillight assembly system
