Bang for your buck, luxury on a budget.

Extremely comfortable and roomy. Smooth riding. Luxurious. Lots of power. Plenty of trunk space. Cold air conditioning. Very reliable. Great value. I enjoy taking this car on long road trips as well as just cruising around town. Decent gas mileage for a v8.

- Kevin C

It drives really well and will get you where you need to go, as long as you take care of it.

I like my vehicle a lot. Before this BMW, I had another 740i, and it was my first BMW, and I loved it. This one is the sport edition, and I don't like it as much as the first.

- Samantha B

The overall comfort is the best thing about this car it has premium leather seats and luxury functions like back massage and lumbar support

My Bimmer is an excellent car for its age! It needs a bit of work here and there but overall a very solid car. It runs very smooth and can keep up with the best of them!
