Best bargin on the road!!
By edh8 on


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


This is one amazing car!! for what you can pick up a nice clean 01 740i for today everyone should try it out.
The motor is bulletproof the trans is the weak link, however rebuilt it and the car will run to 200-300k easily.
Getting there might not be cheap, radiators, water pumps, expansion tank, suspension parts will break down and random sensors and gaskets will leak.

Despite all that this car is tight as a Drum at 125k miles, handling is amazing for a car this size. I installed some 18 M- Parallel staggered wheels.
The power delivery is fast and linear, only 282hp but feels faster than my friends 550i. Car is a beast, a tank call it what you will, no body roll on highway!! Buy one

Best Features

Power, handling, comfort, seats, awesome stereo, still looks like a Boss rolling on M-Paralles! Where else can you get all this refinement and driving pleasure for $6k, I had Audis, Lexus(GS and LS400) Cobras, corvettes, Z28s. This car is a 4 door Cobra, my 01 had 320hp but this car with 282hp feels faster and handles just as good with way more comfort and room for 5! only if it has a manual trans it would be perfect!!! everyone cries about parts $$, don't take it to a dealer. There are many vendors on line that sell parts that are no more expensive than a part for a Camry. Find a good indy mechanic and you can enjoy this car for a long time for little money. Easy to work for DIYers!

Worst Features

Manual trans! easier HVAC controls
