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


Review

Have found that this 740I has all the pleasures as the 740IL has to offer but with less bulk to handle. Have been driving it for over three years and been trouble free with 50M miles plus and the handling the roads in the mountains have been what BMW noted for on curves etc. The gas mileage on long trips avg around 22 to 23 miles per gal. I have found that the 2001 is the last of the old style and possibly most of any problems they have had been cleared up. I have noted that you do not see many resales for 2001 and they have been holding up in value. Would I buy another BMW 7 Series, Yes.. A Good 05 or 06.


Best Features

The seating is correct. Park Distance Control is very helpful and a must to have. The rear & side sun shades are nice to have when in the south.


Worst Features

Need to improve the vision for the dash and computer screen when wearing polarized glasses.

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


Review

COMFORTABLE, safe, reliable (thus far!) roomy, untouched by Mr. Bangle, almost quiet,and a bigger trunk than the S, but not the dazzling interior or tech goodies of a A8 (we owned one--it saved me form a 55 mph moron). The 7 is more fun to drive than the A.The Ultimate .... you know.


Best Features

exterior styling handling, personality, acceleration, stopping, the Bimmer stuff....


Worst Features

boy, the Audi guys do interiors well.the & suffers only by comparison.but it sure drives better!

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


Review

You need to remember that you are buying a luxury car and with that comes very expensive repairs / diagnostics. I have the 740i sport and the top of the line tires cost $300/each to replace. The cost to replace a battery is over $300. Synthetic oil changes cost around $200. Prepare to spend a least a few thousand dollars on upkeep of this car and also, be very aware that it's rear- wheel drive. If you live anywhere that is prone to ice/snow, think twice about this car! Fun to drive / nice looking car did not outweigh the costs associated with ownership for me. I seem to be one of the few dissenters on how great these cars are.


Best Features

Looks great, heated front seats, memory seat positions, NAV system.

Review

The 740i - sports package 00 or 01 is "the" car to drive. Speed, handling, cornering and road grip is unmatched. No other 4 door car can come close to the 740i - none. Too bad BMW ruined the 7 series and soon all series with that bulky, ugly, bubbly design. Shame on BMW for pulling such a stupid move. If you're looking for a great vehicle; try to find a 00 or 01 740i - sports package; miles 40K to 60K in the $28K range You will love it. Again, 740i not the IL


Best Features

comfortable, roomy front and back fast, impressive, A true BEAST.
