Classic BMW - 740iL
By Lord Zornes on


1999 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan


This was our first 7 series - our
other being a 2000 740iL.

Have been impressed with the quiet,
comfort and speed - not to mention
the "legacy look" of the E38 7 Series.

The new E60 series are too hodge-
podged on the exterior for our taste.
I doubt we'll be upgrading anytime

Only issue - the Nappa leather on our
green one (a butter creme colour) --
seems to reek of mustiness all the
time - especially when the summer heat
bakes the car during the day.
Replacing the airfilter, as well as
placing boxes of Arm & Hammer baking
soda doesn't seem to remove the stale
smell. *sigh* - time for
some "leather" spray I guess.
