    Like Driving A Dream, Smooth, Quiet, And Comfortable. — I love the 7 series. I feel confident when driving this car. Car feels solid. It is comfortable to drive and ride in too. Wish there was more room in the front seat for my purse, you have to put it on the passenger side floor taking up space for their personal item and feet.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Very spacious backseat, wonderful to travel in. Power is strong. Inside is  very quiet when driving.

    Cons: Nowhere to put your purse in when driving except at your passengers feet in front. Hate having the CD player in the trunk. The seat control panel on drivers side always comes unattached. Second BMW that had this issue, design flaw in my opinion. The front of the car is low enough to just catch on a parking bumper or pulling up to a curb, pulling the bumper off when you back up, if you're not careful..

    Comfy Car For Those With Mechanical Abilities — I bought a 2001 BMW 740i as the last year of production had distinctive body colored trim, newly designed taillights (introduced in 2001), and for a half year only a 16:9 aspect ratio screen. Its a great car for ignoring the road rather than absorbing the experience.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Tons of room, luxurious, great condition!

    Cons: Not a drivers car - heavy, lethargic. Maintenance is terrible

    Stunning!! — Love it and will never leave it!!! It's worth every penny. I'm not sure if the newer models hold up to the 2001. The trunk holds 2 golf bags very easily. I have more room than a SUV or VAN which I never owned since it doesn't fit my style...

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

    Pros: BEST LUXURY SPORTY CLASSY car on the road. The last year BMW hit it right!!  I had my 740il for over 8 years and I still in love with this car at 120K miles.  It is the diamond in the rough..... I have had many wonderful high end cars and this is my baby... She is a prize possession, for a classy woman like myself. I feel safe and comfortable driving like no other car. It has the power to get up and go when you need the acceleration on the NY highways and LIE.  I drove this car from NYC to East End for years and have to say it makes the endless two hour drive a pleasure...  Can't go wrong with the "Ultimate Driving Machine".

    Cons: The on board cell phone harnass is expensive to change over. Can't seem to find a cell phone service provider to turn it on to use. If anyone know's a cell phone company without changing the harness please advisee.

    I Love 7 Series Bmw's But — Cheap tacky plastic components that fail for a car of this price range. Failing cheap plastic on the radiator, cup holders, internal engine components like timing chain guides, plastics in the display components were terrible thats why there are all these instrument cluster display issues, the quality of plastic sourced and used by Hella and BMW is sub standard on the electronic components, engine and sliding moving parts the list is endless. Also use of weaker suspension parts especially on the models with suspension assist options like EDC or SLS is totally unacceptable for a car in this price range. You're were better of with nThe only other luxury model with such issues was the Audi A8's. No such complaints from Lexus, Infiniti, Mercs or comparable cadillacs. I've owned a Lexus LS, a Merc S550, driven an Infinity M45 but never a cadillac or lincoln.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A++ for speed, power and agility. Both the e38 and e65 and F01 all are surprisingly agile for a car that size.

    Cons: Cheap tacky plastic components that fail for a car of this price range. Failing cheap plastic on the radiator, cup holders, engine components like timing chain guides list is endless. Also use of weak suspension parts especially on the models with suspension assists options like EDC or SLS is totally unacceptable for a car in this price range.

    Get It If You Can Afford It. — It's a GREAT car. I'd recommend buying one. The engine is amazing with the 4.4 liter V8. It helps to have a good job if you need to replace things, but when you do i'd recommend looking online for cheaper parts cause will find them over going to the dealership. The Build quality is great it's GERMAN! The looks of it are classic and inbodys the German fabricating at the time. When I was looking this car up before I bought it, most of the web sites i used said it would average about 14mpg, but that seems really hard to do to get gas millage that low. I average right around 18mpg. It's a very fun car to drive even being a a massive car, once you get going you can't even tell that it is.I love my car and I love BMWs. and they love me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: EVERYTHING

    Cons: maintenance cost

    Attractive Car — Performance is good and fun to drive. Quality built vehicle. Nice car inside and out. Gas mileage is OK. A vehicle that was a head of its time. Acceleration is there when you need it. Repair costs are high so go to BMW (European) certified mechanic - save $. Felt safe and in control of vehicle at all times.

    Pros: Sports model. Powerful V12 engine. Nice drive/ride.

    Cons: Cannot rotate tires (front/back tire sizes differ). Premium gas only.

    Bmw Rules — No dislikes, best body style of the big luxury vehicles out there, combines the best of all worlds. Luckily it is not my commuter and the gas prices are not affecting me as much. Though, if we would just get rid of the POTUS we could start drilling and increase supply, thus lowering prices. Economics 101.

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

    Pros: Pure Fun

    Cons: Premium Gas
