What is it with people and their cup holders. In Europe it is illegal to drink and drive; yes coffee, as well as eating and driving. It is as bad as talking or texting on the phone. The sooner it becomes illegal here, the better.
I am thinking of buying a 2000 BMW 740i with 49,000 kms, GPS, loaded to the gills, no dings or scratches, seller is asking for 12,000 dollars... plus taxes... is this a good buy?
I am looking at a high mileage one owner 740i. The price is good and the car is tight, smooth, and the engine and trans are top. Air and all electronics work without a flaw. The only thing wrong that I have found is an easy fix; when one closes the front passenger door, the speaker cover in that door panel falls out of place.
I called the vin into BMW and got a good report. The service book shows regular synthetic oil changes.
Can anyone tell me if there is something else I should look for? This is theSport model.
I have had my 2000 740i for about one month now. It has just 77,000 original miles with the Sport package. It doesn't have the road-ride a large luxury car has, but that is not what is was designed for. It is a driver's car, and for that I have never driven anything that rivals it. If you want to enjoy your commute, BMW is the only way to go.
I have just purchased a 2000 740il with 69,000 miles on it. It drives like no car I have ever driven.
I love this car, it is in pristine condition inside and out.
