1998 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan


I've had the car for 4 months now and
have put 7,000 miles on it already,
including a 3,000 mile cross country
road trip. Ran flawlessly, in the
flatlands, in the mountains and in 115
degree desert heat. Never changed the
temp from 72 degrees and was
comfortable no matter the outside
temps. I've had some work done since
owning, but all under warranty. This
is my second 7 series. My first was
an 88 735i. It had 150,000 miles on
it and I put another 85,000 on it.
Never had drivetrain problems. I'm a
huge fan of these cars. I'll probably
get another in about another 100,000

Best Features

Ride, power is available in all rpm ranges, great sound system, very good looking car. I get looks every time I drive it.

Worst Features

Cup holder is weak and not in a good location. Can't work temp controls with drinks. Needs a hand brake vice the foot emergency brake.
