2001 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


This car is one of the best cars of all time. It can be smooth and quiet on the highway , but when you put your foot down its 4.4L V8 surges forward with 324lb.ft. of torque and 282hp. The steering is heavy and responsive. The suspension soaks up bumps, but delivers sharp handling when you want it. In 5 years of owning this car the only problem was getting the handsfree phone setup. Our car had an outdated navigation system and the rear cup holders once broke, but there were no other problems. This BMW is in my opinion one of the best cars ever overall. This one of the last real BMW's from before the new bigger Bangle designed BMW. It has a classic look, but appears modern.

Best Features

Looks, safety, handling, steering, comfort, acceleration, 33mpg on the highway in our experience, and luxury.

Worst Features

As with many European cars it has terrible cup holders and the Navigation system in our car was hard to use and slow.
