My 01 Big Bimmer 740i
By bigmikeG on


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


After 108K miles, the paint still looks great it accelerates wonderfully and the 18"-M parallel wheels still are timely. I recently change (6 liters) the tranny fluid and filter. No one could tell me what "life time fluid" means in miles or years. belts, O2 sensors and A/C blower have been replaced. Of course, you 01 owners know about the radiator and expansion tank problems (50k miles and death sets in). The display still has all the pixels and the Bose system still rocks. Try Toyo Proxos tire if you have a 7. They are the best tire I have bought. I love this car, costs a few bucks to keep going. But doing 79 on th highway and getting 25 to 26 MPG is pretty good for a 2 ton, V8 hoss

Best Features

Ergonomically sensitive, sound system, nav system. Service Engine Soon light is very sensitive. 9.9 times out of 10, it is the gas cap. It looks sharp in Titanium Silver. Last of this body style.

Worst Features

Cup holders really stink. Radiator and expansion tanks replaced before 50k (had the same problem on my 540i). 282 HP is a bit low for a heavy sedan.
