2000 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan


Car now has 95k miles. At 85k mi nav unit in trunk failed; replaced with used unit/upgrade ($250). At 93k car developed minor leak - valve cover gasket. Put new Mich Pilot Sport + after 30K on the Kumhos. At 94k air mass meter failed along with PCV valve; fixed valve cover gasket at same time totaling $1400. Car averages 15k mi between oil changes, though I will start doing it substantially more often now. Still the most fun car I've ever owned and can't get excited about anything else out there. Overall, I have not had that much trouble with the car. I don't see much in the way of keeping it another 25-30k miles; after that, we'll see.

Best Features

The power, the ride, the handling. Comfort sport seats are better than any other car I've driven. 23 mpg highway; 15 city

Worst Features

Nav system totally outdated now and too expensive to maintain or upgrade. This car has the sport package, so tire wear is a downer. New Michelins are supposed to be good for 50k; we'll see.
