Pros

The smoothest ride and most luxurious interior I have ever owned.

Cons

Maintenance is expensive, and you can't use anything but OEM.  Don't even get me started on the synthetic oil changes.

Great Older Sedan — This one of the most recognizable BMW models. The mileage is surprisingly good considering the overall weight of the car. The sound system is fabulous, however, the multi CD changer, not so much. A real head turner, most people will tell you, "that's my favorite model and year!"

Pros

Very good looking car, drives like a dream.  Very smooth. Very powerful. Very quiet inside.

Cons

Getting quite a few miles. You can count on doing some sort of repair each year.

One Of The Best Luxury Performance Cars Ever Built — I have loved owning this car. It is beautiful, fast, and is not bad on gas. 21.3 MPG. It drives so smooth, it is really the nicest driving car I have ever been in. Although it is 10+ year old it still drives better than most new cars on the road today.

Pros

Touring is a pleasure!  Car is in excellent shape and driven on highway for 150 mile commute, absolutely no problems!  Has not been a daily driver, used for occasions when we wanted to tour clients.

Cons

No much I can say sucks about this car, is is luxurious and a classy ride

Full Dinan Package! — These models are rare, the Dinan package makes this 1998 BMW 7 Series even more amazing! Driving is a pleasure, body style is beautiful, still turns heads and has an amazing amount of power for commuting or just pleasure driving. All maintenance current on the vehicle, taken great care with the body and original paint. Fully specked out.

It Is Very Big But A Very Comftable Drive — I love this car, it drives nicely and is very smooth. Its a very big car and feels it when you driving it. This has to be the best car i have owned but not very practicable for family use.

Fantastic Car. — The BMW 750Li, especially the 90s - 2001 model, was a fantastically built car, and a fantastically looking one as well. The car had an insane amount of grunt - you push the gas, and you're already there. It is, of course, a BMW, so repair parts are expensive, but then again, you wouldn't expect them to cost the same as a Chevrolet or Ford. You can pick one of these up for around $4K now, and it's still a very luxurious car.

Best car I ever owned!

Cons

If you can find V12 you'll have to pay the price for it.

Best Car I Ever Owned! — First V12 "nothing like it". I've had this car almost 5 years. I've replaced a window motor, fixed the power seat and replaced the fan. The total cost of repairs has been for a car that has 160,000 miles on it. This car is a pleasure to drive. It's comfortable and powerful. I usually get above 28 MPG on the freeway, and that's doing 80 MPH. I almost always choose it over my other cars (VW Touareg V8, F250 Diesel) due to the excellent sound system and handling. I've looked at the newer body style and I don't like it as much. Also the iDrive is a pain to use. I now have 160,000 miles on the car and I'm keeping it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Very comfortable.

Cons

Boring exterior, not the "greenest."

1998 Bmw 740 Il — Acceleration, braking, and handling are very good for it class. It has broken down before I believe twice. Once the engine, and the second time a brake caliper froze. The interior is really nice, comfortable, and "eye pleasing." The exterior is satisfactory but nothing special. Gas mileage is not great but not unreasonable. The car is very fun to drive. We happened to get a fantastic deal for only about 11,000, we drove off in a high-class, luxury vehicle.

Love The Car By xiiikn3ss

I love this car. I bought it 5 years ago for 500 dollars off of one of my friends. Its a very well made car and a blast to ride in. The suspension takes dips and turns like a true champ. Read More
