Edmunds' Expert Review

The 7 Series offers an impressive combination of space, luxury and performance. If you can part with some of the performance, the less expensive Lexus LS 430 is an excellent alternative.

vehicle overview

BMW's 7 Series seals power and luxury tightly together and throws a heap of style right on top. All this, added to the vehicle's reputation for sophistication and snob appeal, makes the 7 Series the pinnacle of prestige for those who desire the absolute snazziest ultra-luxury sedans.

The stellar 7 Series lineup consists of the 740i, 740iL and 750iL. Also available are the 740iL Protection and 750iL Protection models that feature bullet-resistant glass and run-flat tires. Powered by incredibly smooth V8 and V12 engines, these 7 Series super-luxury sedans are quite possibly the finest of their kind, providing exceptional comfort, rich appointments and rewarding performance. Those who must have it all will want to check out the amazingly appointed V12 750iL. Want a stereo that sounds better than a symphony hall? Check. Want an anti-theft security system that can put Fort Knox to shame? Check. Want a heated steering wheel? Check. Want 41 inches of rear legroom? Check. Shelling out nearly 100 grand for the supreme BMW will get you a fully outfitted luxury car with only two available options: side-impact rear air bags and break-resistant security glass.

Those on a budget (ha, ha) should take a look at the 740i. Tens of thousands of dollars less than its big brother, the 740i is geared toward buyers who are merely wealthy instead of obscenely rich. Nestled snugly between the 750iL and the 740i is the 740iL--a vehicle that offers amazing relaxation with its 16-way front Comfort Seats. The 740iL provides all of the space of the 750iL, but leaves enough money in the checking account to send your pride and joy to Stanford for one year.

The 2001 7 Series' long list of standard and optional features includes an integrated cellular phone, a navigation system, premium audio system with digital sound processing and a six-disc CD changer, Xenon headlights, all-season traction control, Dynamic Stability Control, Dynamic Brake Control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, eighteen-inch alloy wheels, rear side air bags and extra-thick window glass. Buyers interested in the 740i can take advantage of the optional Adaptive Ride Package that provides Electronic Damping Control (EDC) and a Self-Leveling Suspension. Personal safety features include double locked doors, coded drive-away protection, two-step unlocking, and front, side and head air bags.

It is always difficult to choose the "best" in a class of outstanding competitors and, with super-luxury entries from Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Lexus and Infiniti, it seems flippant to say that one of these vehicles is superior to the others. Still, we know which one we would buy if we won the Lotto. BMW has a tradition of improving on excellence and the 2001 7 Series cars are no exception. If you have the money and need an impressive set of wheels, this is the car for you.

This Used to be my Dream Car, became a nightmare..
I see a lot of great reviews about this car, and not surprisingly, most of them were written within 5 years or so of the car being born - the others must just be those really lucky ones (laugh). I bought this car in 2008 with 120k miles on it, it now has 210k. In that time, I've spent roughly $15000 on the various repairs and upkeep of the car. I'm not a wealthy man, and in short, this car has ruined me financially. I'm going to be selling it soon for a Camry or Avalon - I just want something reliable, first and foremost, after having the unfortunate experience of dealing with the expensive repairs needed to keep this beautiful car running. Update - I consider myself lucky as I did not end up needing to sell the car (which I think I would have had a hard time doing given the 210+k miles on it), someone rear ended me in a hit and run and totaled the 740. At that point the repairs would have been about $6000, about $500 more than what they deemed the car was worth at that point. Used the insurance money towards at 2008 Acura TL, has been great so far, only repairs that have been needed are changing out brakes and changing transmission oil.
Best in its class
I purchased my 740i the summer of 2007 with 122K, it now has 170k. Mechanically i have changed a suspension component ($250), brakes($1100) battery($150) and tires($1100) otherwise just oil service. Recently it has began to slowly leak coolant. The reliability has been excellent and it still feels very much like a new vehicle. Preformance is Great but remember it is a large sedan The interior is beyond expectations. Exterior is beautiful with the sport package!!! Overall it is a great vehicle to enjoy for many years. I would never consider trading for anything else of similar value,
THE BEST CAR ON THE ROAD
About 6 years ago my husband bought me the 2001 740i. I have put over 75,000 mile on it in 6 years and when I reached 210,000 miles I decided to give it to my son and go buy a "new" car. Not because I needed to as my "baby" still looks and handles and runs like a brand new car but I do alot of driving and thought a newer car would be more reliable on long trips. Well I looked at all the newer model Bimmers, test drove them, kicked the tires, walked around the outside, sat in the back seat....and guess what? Forget the new car. I bought a 2001 BMW 740iL with 85,000 miles on it! I loved the 740i...I adore the 740iL!
