"This is my second 7 series BMW. The first ran like new at 260k + miles! when we parted company due to an accident. Any less substantially constructed vehicle, may not have preserved my life. Built like a tank, glides like 747 jet, and does 120 mph with intrepidity. Were the new model more affordable, I'd try one...unfortunately, the $120k is not within my current budget. Perhaps, a certified pre-owned vehicle is my destiny...."

"Purchased my '97 740IL with 50K and have put 190K on it. Still a great-looking, great-running car. Repairs have been minimal--new catalytic converters the most expensive item. Great handling, comfort and power. Front and back seats extremely comfortable with spacious leg room. Very happy with purchase."

"This car has been a double edged sword. It's cool to "have" and fun to drive. However, it has been the most expensive car to own and maintain that I have ever had - and I have owned 44 cars. Now, at 14-years old, it is unreliable. I have spent over $1000 trying to find an intermittent electrical leak that causes it to drain the battery overnight. Sometimes it's fine for months. Then all of a sudden it's dead in the morning. this makes it practically useless as a daily driver. Conclusion: I loved it, but now I hate it - and it will be worth almost nothing if I try to sell it with the electrical problem. Good Will, here it comes..."
