Cons

Own One At Some Point In Your Life - Then You Make The Decision. — The only car I have ever owned that I miss in SF. The Alpina B12 version is the most perfect performance sedan made. The only complaint is the GPS interface. Regardless, its the only car I've owned that makes a 16 hour road trip not only comfortable, but something to look forward to.

Ridiculous repair and maintenance costs.

Find Somebody Who Has One And Become Their Best Friend, Drive Theirs. — At over 4700 lbs this car is a tank, but the 5.4L V12 means it still hauls! The interior is the most comfortable of any car I've ever been in and laid out in beautiful fashion with all instruments and controls right where you want them. This is also the most fun car I've ever driven, the V12 makes a sound unlike any other, snarling with power yet elegantly refined. This is by far one of the most impressive driving machines ever created in keeping with the highest BMW standards. Driving this car, however, is where the fun ends. Owning it is entirely a different story. With a 25 gallon tank and an engine that calls for premium gas filling up isn't cheap even in the best of times. Repair costs are astronomical and not nearly as uncommon as they should be on a car like this. One must remember that despite the luxury car comforts this is still a performance car underneath it all.

Pros

The car is a 2000 750iL V-12 360hp, not a 750Li, it has tremendous power.

Cons

The car is expensive to maintain.  Parts and service at a BMW dealership will cost you, a lot, but the service is guaranteed for the life of the car.

Even Though The Car Is 13 Years Old It Is Very Impression When Cleaned And Waxed. — What I like most about this car is that it is economical on gas consumption on long trips. I drove the car from Washington, DC to Durham, NC on less than a tank of gas. The on-board computer kept me abreast of fuel consumption at 65 mph and the remaining distance to my destination. With gas prices at $4.00 in the Maryland area this was a great benefit. What I don't like about the car is that it is expensive to maintain and consumes at lot of gas on short trips.

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

Pros

Has a 12 cylinder engine which give the car a lot of power.  The car is very economical on gas while cruising at 65 mph.  Maintaining a regular service schedule eliminates many future problems.

Cons

Repair cost can be expensive.  I only use BMW certified mechanics, that guarantee their work and they are expensive. The car phone has to adopted to the new cell phone systems on the market, but it is doable. Finding and adopting the original phone, can be a challenge if not impossible.  The car has electrical issues which has disabled the drivers seat, so none of the features that adjust the seat work.
Also, the exterior is black but the interior is gray.  I much preferred black on black.  An adapter for satellite radio radio would have been nice.

Soon. — This car is a rare find on the east coast and none are for sale in Bowie, Maryland. I brought the car in Virginia, and had others ready, willing, and able to buy the car out from under me. Driving this car is an experience you won't soon forget, the classic design, smooth and aggressive acceleration is something I enjoy. Even though the car is 13 years old, it still turns heads.

Great! — BMW are great cars, the ride is wonderful.The leather seats with heat cozy! Sunroof perfect for breezy days! I wish it was less expensive for routine maintenance or minor repairs. Thinking about upgrading to a Mercedes, but same situation lol!!

Expensive — Heavy Car, Expensive Repairs but great for long trips. Weak timing chain , has decent acceleration but its a very heavy car. When topped off, its even heavier due to its huge gas tank. Very expensive to fill up. Looks amazing though, very elegant.

You Don't Know How Much I Miss This Car. — This is a '00 740iL, my first 4 door BMW. I chose this car so it can provide maximum safety to my then new born son. This was also how I accidentally discovered the best BMW I've ever driven! Back then, it was my wife who drove the car most of the time while as I still prefer the more engaging '99 M Coupe that I also used for track purpose. After 3 enjoyable years, I thought I traded in the seven for an '01 M5 and wouldn't miss anything - how wrong I was! I bought another 740iL ('01) a few years later. For review of this model, please refer to the '01 car's review.
