PREMIUM LUXURY AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

As they say, you either love BMW or hate them. I so happen to love them. Want one? Make sure you have money for maintenance. Great car if you can work on them yourself or have a good BMW mechanic. I have both. The ride is second to none. The engine is just awesome. I have owned two Chevy Suburbans. One was a 1999 and the other 2000. I also own a 1998 Honda Accord. I can honestly say that the interior of the BMW 740il is cheap compared to the Chevy and Honda. Beautiful interior but cheap material for the price back in 2001. If you see one, look at the cup holders. The cup holders are usually broken and they are worthless. The B-Pillars (where the front seat belts come out of) start coming apart. Again, you will either love then or hate them. You can't beat the price for such a luxury car. Just make sure you pamper the car really well. Be gentle with it. I moved the sun visor on one of my 740ils and the latch on the visor broke? PAMPER the ride. Believe me I got lots of looks. Go for it!

Very comfortable and reliable, one of the best cars I ever owned. I just purchased 2013 328x, but still love much better older 7 series. I would recommend to have a good and honest mechanic who will work with parts you can purchase by yourself through online resources. I still enjoying this car and hate to let it go.

I bought mine certified pre owned and that may have made it so reliable. But the car is a tank. I call it a sled. Fast, stable and built for highway travel. Terrible in the snow however. Best part - the old body style is a classic.

After a 3 Series and a couple of 5 Series, I finally picked up my dream car; the 2001 BMW 740i Sport Pkg in Anthracite. I absolutely love it! The styling, the performance, the luxury, that indescribable feeling you get every time you take your place behind the wheel. Now if you're thinking of getting one of these cars, you must be patient! If you pick one up that hasn't been cared for, your dream car will quickly become a very expensive nightmare. The extra effort and (very likely) higher price you will pay up front for a properly cared for car will be well worth it in the long run. The odometer on my E38 now reads 165k, but the car looks and drives more like 65k miles. My next project will be to upgrade the Nav/Stereo system to the MK IV system from an '04-'08 BMW X5. The units are interchangeable, and the newer hardware comes with OEM Bluetooth connectivity and XM Sirius satellite radio, as well as upgrades to the navigation system itself. There are a lot of upgrades available if you want to improve or personalize a 7 series. To sum up, I love this car! And as long as you know what you're getting into when you buy it, you will love yours too.

I love the lines and features of this car. it's oem technology remains relevant compared to today's cars. though it lacks bluetooth and mp3 player capability you can upgrade to these features with oem or aftermarket options. the cabin is VERY spacious and gets good mpg on the highway for a v8. If you can do most of minor to medium maintenance on this car yourself you will get a serious value.

I have been looking at cars for over 2 months. This includes Porsches, M Benzs, the new pretenders (Kias/Hyundais) but everytime I test drive and get back in my 740I M Series,with the factory installed Dinan system, I know I have the best deal. By the way, I looked for this car for 3 years, I found it 2 years ago, it had 38k on it, I now have 51k on it, so many, many years of pulsating driving ahead. LOVE IT! I have a Lexus LS460 for my subduded driving moments.

When it came time to get a new (used) car I was ready for a change. In the last 15 years I had an Acura Legend, Jaguar XJS and a Mercedes E 420. I found a BMW 740 Il in great shape and a great price, so I rolled the dice. Best decision EVER. I love my car. The 740 drives like a dream, powerful and agile. It holds the road like the a much smaller "sportier" car. With a few small exceptions it is very luxorious, and is massive on the interior (the back seat has to be seen to be believed). I have had the car for almost a year, and it hasn't given me any problems whatsoever. The only issue with the car is a few interior faults. Worst cup holders ever. Cheap plastic around the seats. That's it. That's all that's wrong with this car. If you can get one at a good price (a 2001 with 95,000 miles for $7,400) grab it. You will be VERY happy.
