The BMW 740iL sedan has lots of different features, such as iDrive controls for backseat passengers. This means that those sitting in the back will have access to the radio and the heating and cooling controls. This feature is beginning to pop up in many luxurious vehicles. The design of the BMW has always been very eye-catching, so the same goes for the 740iL model. The actual BMW 7 Series has various models to choose from; six to be exact. They all have different features and styles about them. The glamorous headlights and taillights give the appearance of gleaming eyes that is both exotic and captivating. Taking care of your BMW 740iL is very important, so doing your routine maintenance and repairs on the vehicle is necessary.

BMW 740iL

Based on the E38, the BMW 740iL was introduced in 1995 as part of the company's "7 Series." It was discontinued in 2001 in favor of the E65. Available with either a five-speed automatic or manual transmission the 740iL featured a 4.4 liter V8 engine. Other features shared with other models of the 7 Series included four-link integral rear suspension, electronic damper control and ASC+T traction control, making it an exceptionally well-handling vehicle. Drivers enjoy such luxuries as a power moonroof and a deluxe sound system featuring 14 speakers, four subwoofers and a 6-disc CD changer. An on-board navigation system is standard and automatic climate control. This model also features genuine leather seats and wood trim. Virtually nothing was overlooked when it comes to safety features, with a full range of airbags and optional shatterproof glass.

Although BMW abandoned the E38 platform in 2001, the BMW 740iL got a bit of a boost in sales toward the end after the vehicle was featured in a number of popular films, including the James Bond adventure, Tomorrow Never Dies. Ironically, series' successor, the E65 was not a big seller due to some styling changes and the new iDrive computer system, which had yet to be proven. This helped to keep the 740iL's resale value up over the next few years.

Three different engines were used to power the BMW 740iL over the course of the model's lifetime. Originally, the vehicle came with an M60 4.0 liter V8. In 1996, this was replaced by the larger M62 4.4 liter version. That was subsequently upgraded to a modified version of that same engine, which offered greater low-end torque.

Although German automobiles are well-known for their precision engineering and construction, there have been a number of BMW 740iL problems reported over the years. One of the more common complaints has to do with leaking in the valve cover, intake manifold and PCV oil plate. Drivers also report leaks in the cooling system, which can require the purchase of multiple BMW 740iL parts. Consumer Reports has rated the reliability of the 740iL engine as "worse than average" for model years 1998-2002 and 2003. The 2001 model has also had serious problems with the electrical and suspension system, as well as its power equipment. The primary complaint about that year's model was the radiator, which can fail altogether. 2001 BMW 740iL parts can be expensive, and the radiator is no exception; unless you can find a discount supplier like PartsGeek.com, plan on spending at least $1400 to repair the radiator.

The good news is that, while certain BMW 740iL vehicles have proven trouble to their owners, many of these problems can be avoided with proper maintenance. You'll also want to avoid taking the vehicle to just any repair shop. Dealers will usually charge top dollar, but a shop that specializes in German auto repair and maintenance will be able to do the job for a fair price.
