I have owned this car since 1999 and still love driving it. After 140.000 miles I was having some leak issues but had it fixed. Only issues I had was changing break pads often and my tires every two years( Because of the sports package) the car still looks great and is very powerful when you hit the gas pedal. I think it was the best 740 they build. Today I hear horror stories about the new 7 series. Don't understand why BMW is having so much trouble building trouble-free cars. It might be that they are having trouble combining technology with BMW's engines and EPA's regulations. I own two BMW's and one Cherokee Jeep. Looking into maybe trading in my one beamer and the jeep for another X5 but the reviews are not that good. Oh well, just have to keep driving my 740
got this car in 2008, had to replace the engine in 2011, tranny gives a kick in the back had it rebuilt, and it still kicks in the back, love love love the car though, the driving is awesome, on the hwy, ohhh boy, you have to be very mindful, it luvvs the hway, and....it hardly eats any gas on the hwy, but locally, wow, terrible, the drive is awesome though, and ppl still turn to look, a beautiful car, but not cheap
the ride, the look, the feel, it just handles like a pro...luvv it
The overall charistics of this car are fantastic. I purchased this car 6 months ago for 8500.00 and it has 74k miles. Its hard to find this much cart for this kind of money. Great value. I own a Corvette and Hot Rod shop and have driven many many car of all ages and types. This 740iL is on my top 10 list of best overall car!
The back seats are incredible! This car has an unbelievable ride and seat comfort.
