2000 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan


Review

This is an awesome road car. I've
driven it about 5,000 miles on 6 trips
in 4 months and am very pleased. This
was a BMW certified unit. So far, no
problems, but the Service Engine Soon
light comes on intermittently; service
center says it is likely something on
the emissions systems.


Best Features

14 way power seats on the Sport model. Power to spare.


Worst Features

Navigation system is clumsy; cup holders could certainly be improved; gas mileage is not as good as on my previous 740 (attribute to the Sport package with the step-tronic tranny and a slower rear end ratio).

Review

As a prior owner of Infiniti and Lexus,
this car is definitely not Japanese.
Like Q45 it's performance oriented and
does it in a style. Like Lexus it's
luxurious yet rugged. Even though it's
interior is not as a sophisticated as a
Jaguar, it's still very uptown. It's
the Drivers Car. On a twisting road it
lets you know it's a BMW.


Best Features

Performance - Performance - Perfomance


Worst Features

Can we get another cup holder please?

Review

This is my first BMW and so far in
over a year it's been fairly reliable -
the only problem was a battery that
failed about 2 months ago. I expected
a competent sedan - but realize every
day that this is a performance sedan
first, that also happens to be quite
luxurious. I can't imagine having
more fun driving four of my full sized
friends in exceptional comfort...


Best Features

Powerful, stable driving, without giving up comfort


Worst Features

Cupholders - but the aftermarket has provided some good alternatives

Review

After careful, detailed research for a
high performance car that is safe and
big enough for my family and 3
additional adult passengers - I decided
on the 740i SPORT. The SPORT is the
key to add the performance and fun to a
great automobile. This car is better
than I had hoped it would be.
Extremely fun to drive (auto or
manual), handles great, and extremely
comfortable for long trips.


Best Features

Performance, handling, fun, safety, passenger space, exterior and interior design (with the "M" additions).


Worst Features

Cup holders require extremely short beverages. Gas mileage is not good, but we are talking about a V8.

Review

This car is absolutely fun to drive.
It handles extremely well. We had
looked at the Lexus and Mercedes. The
Lexus was more of a softer ride and the
Mercedes was in the same ball park with
the Beemer, but the cost was extremely
more. Even if the Mercedes was priced
around the same, we would have still
went with the Beemer.


Best Features

Look, features, quality


Worst Features

Cup holder placement
