Bmw 740i — Well, I have to write 40 words here, otherwise it is not gonna count as a review but seriously, she's a BMW 740, an amazing car. Exactly what a BMW is supposed to be. Very fast, powerful, elegant, timeless and just extremely luxurious.

Pros: All

Cons: Should've bought her years ago

As Long As I Am At The Helm Of This Bmw, There Is No Where In The World Where I Cannot Be. —

The BMW 740iL is so good this is actually a second one I bought (after I traded in the first one a few years back, for an M5!). All you have to do is to sit in one to be convinced - apart from the top notch material being used (high gloss walnut wood trims with chrome accents, soft and durable top grain leather seating surfaces, driver-centric centre console design, etc.), it is the generous amount of interior space that seals the deal - carvernous! Space is a luxury quite often ignored - in this car, it is especially satisfying to be able to, say, reach for your cell phone in the pants pocket without having to bump into the door card or the centre tunnel, etc. The seat excels not only in the number of adjustments available, but, more importantly, is so generous in size you can be very deliberate in choosing how you like to shift weight wth you behind while resting your elbow(s) on the softly padded arm/elbow rest(s). All the buttons and controls are so inviting to use you just can't help but believe hours of research must have been put in to determine their locations and tactile feels to ensure positive engagement everytime! A few other fine touches such as one twist start, heated steering wheel, and soft close trunk complete the list of modern luxury I ever wish for. One pleasant surprise I have with this vehicle is the 6 extra inches of rear seat leg room (it is an "L" model afterall) - not only does it allow you to sit back there with your leg crossed in front without hitting the front seat back, the wide opening rear door also allows large objects to be easily loaded/unloaded into/out of the rear seat area (especially handy when transporting multiple sets of wheels/tires) leaving the trunk a permanent storage for our 3 folding bicycles, helmets, folded lawn chairs. etc. A perfect score cannot be had without considering the ride/handling/engine performance. This is the softest riding BMW I have ever driven and I can describe its as supple yet with extreme disipline in body motion control. And yes, it is a car that can be driven to limits and be equally amazing (as long as you are smooth with the controls). There are no pretend-to-be sport cars out there that can even dream of intimidating this 300 hp V8 beast, be it hot get away from the stop light or emergency lane change maneuvre! The 4.4L aluminum V8 mated to a 5 speeds ZF auto box delivers smooth yet positive shifts with a pleasant and sonarous induction sound. It has so much low end torque throttle response is always instantaneous (even superior to the Porsche Turbo!). This all makes this car sounded like the perfect combination of comfort, luxury, and performance, and it sure is. That's why I can easily pick this car as my most preferred ride over the other more exotic machines in my garage. PS. If you don't like spending money to maintain you vehicle, this is not the car for you. At 140,000 km, my car has new radiator, alternator, assorted suspension arms, heater valve, engine valley seals, and rebuilt transmission! The list will certainly not just end there, but, IMHO, there is still nothing out there that I would rather have.

Pros: I never felt tired of driving this car.  It actually relaxes me!  

Cons: Costs $20,000 in repair costs over the last 20,000km!

The Amazing 740ia — Great performance machine. Its fast, handles well, so perfectly balanced, It is as solid as the day it was new. All the interior materials and exterior body and trim has held up extremely well. Its just a comfortable great driving safe solid car. I am hoping that the new 2009 7 series will be such a car. The '02 generation while a great driving car, was an electronic mess.

Pros: Everything about it

Cons: None really

Lovin It! — great pick up. need to reprogram the transmission shifting points. great handling for a limo! built like a tank, a true master of the road! maintenance is pretty expensive on her, but you have to remember that this is a high end car and requires high end maintenance. gas milage is pretty decent for a V8.

Pros: very spacious and fast!

Cons: long wheelbase brings down the handling but not the fun factor!

Owner's Review - Bmw 740il —

Despite being a large car, it handles as well as a smaller five-series, and I get the same mileage (16-18 mpg) as a 530i I considered buying with the 3.0L V8. Has plenty of features: large trunk, massive back seat, and plenty of power. Highway mileage is good as well. I got around 29 MPG on the highway, and thanks to BMW active seat, I was able to drive ten hours without stopping, even with my bad back. The 4.4L V8 offers plenty of power, even for a heavy car such as this. The braking is acceptable. For handling, curves can be enjoyed at high speeds with little body roll. I've required one repair, when the radiator sprung a leak at the top. Repairs can be expensive, with my mechanic quoting radiator prices at upwards of 450 dollars. I found an OEM Behr radiator for 175, so with installation, it was still around the same as I paid for the replacement in my Ford F150. The car is heavy, and feels solid. The doors are quite weighty, and i've encountered no squeaks and rattles. On styling, i'm partial to this car because I prefer lines as compared to curves on autos. The interior's styling is comfortable and upscale, with BMW using the better rubberized dash and wood grain, as compared to many plastic-fantastic interiors on other cars. My well-maintained 740iL is a wonderfully fun car to drive, and i'm still in love with it, even after the honeymoon is over.

Pros: Solid, Luxurious, decent performance

Cons: Mileage, BMW service costs.
