The Best BMW ever Built?
By sfrei850 on


1998 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan


Had a 1980 528i-loved it. Had a 1989 750il-loved
it too but it was an expensive relantionship. My
current 1998 740il, bought used in 2000, has been
very reliable and loads of fun to drive to the store
or head down to LA from the Bay Area. The ride
quality on the 89 750 was a bit harsh in retrospect
while the 98 740 has that "feel the road" bmw
steering with a much more comfortable ride, and
more of a sports car feel. Hard to believe for such a
big car but it's true! Love it so much I bought
another one for my wife. The V8 has loads of
torque and reminds me of the great muscle cars of
the 60's.

Best Features

Loads of room with a sports car feel. Great power.
