At the time of its introduction to the automobile market, the BMW 7-series car in the E65 body has revolutionized technology and design. The BMW 7-series began production in 2001 and was given an excessively avant-garde body design as for an executive sedan, so some began to consider it very attractive, while others are more cautious in their statements.
It's no coincidence that BMW, always apart in class and often overshadowed by its eternal rival from Stuttgart, has been the most sought-after car on the aftermarket, when it was driven not by hired drivers but by fans of these cars.
Steel body, completely traditional forms, and very stylish design. Three wheelbase variants - standard, iL-machine with a 5-inch addition to the base length, and an even longer L7, already stretched out as much as 15 inches, but because of this, the car looks different. The insertion between the front and rear doors is visible, while the regular extended version looks much more harmonious - it just has a longer rear door.
Used BMW 7 series for sale can be equipped with a range of engines. The base modification is considered the model 730, it received a six-cylinder 231-horsepower inline three-liter engine. In terms of reliability mechanics call it reliable, on the market, this version has the lowest cost, but our car owners are not inclined to pity it. Therefore, when buying such a copy, it is desirable to have a solid sum for unforeseen repair cases.
The most in-demand on the secondary market is a BMW 7-Series with the E65 body designation 745 and 735, they are equipped with a 4.4-liter and 3.6-liter engine. Both units in the operation proved reliable and unpretentious, but still, mechanics do not advise buying a car manufactured in 2001, as their motors quickly wear out the cylinder-piston group.
The top is considered a model 760, it received a 12-cylinder six-liter 445-horsepower engine. On the European secondary market, the price of this version is often compared to the weaker modification 745, which is explained by the higher expenses of the top version, but we do not offer such a discount on the price.
Owners of used BMW 7-series with E65 body should better fill up with 98th gasoline, in this case, the expensive platinum plugs will last up to 40 thousand km. The need for oil changes is calculated by the onboard computer, usually, it recommends changing it at the mileage from 15 to 25 thousand km, but in our conditions, it is better to change it every 15 thousand km.
Today the prices for the used BMW 7 series with E65 body are difficult to put into a single denominator. They usually start from 18 thousand dollars, and it is the price for the cars with unknown maintenance and history of the first years of production. Usually, it is risky to buy such copies. And owners usually ask 70 thousand dollars and more for top versions of the car BMW 7-Series of the last years of production, however, here the price directly depends on individual performance and a complete set.
The reason the BMW 7-series costs much less than a slightly older model is simple. It belongs to the category of luxury cars. Car owners are not going to overpay for technology that is essentially obsolete in a used car, even if it is only a year old.
If you buy a used BMW 7 series with dyno-drive suspension, which includes anti-roll bars and shock absorbers that are adjustable in stiffness, then later on the operating costs of such a car will be much higher compared to conventional specimens. As for the shock absorbers, they cannot be called problematic, but they cost much more than the conventional ones. Stabilizers are considered to be unreliable, and in the rear one's supply tubes often start leaking, and the front ones are leaking on their own. If the computer begins to report errors related to the work of the rear stabilizer, the vehicle owner will be forced to replace the stabilizer itself, but in some cases, this does not help, and have to change the control unit stabilizers.
The steering of the used BMW 7-series has a peculiarity: the steering rack starts knocking, and it happens even with new cars. You have to put up with this knock and it almost does not progress with time. But a similar knocking can be caused by the lower steering shaft cardan, it has a service life of 25-40 thousand miles. Mechanics consider steering tips to be long-lasting, and they rarely fail until 60,000 miles.
Yes, the 2014 used BMW 7 series is a good luxury sedan. The 7 Series impresses with its soft ride, spacious and quiet interior, comfortable seats, and an abundance of standard tech and safety systems.
