    Question is ? To keep the 2001 740IL Sport or Sell




    Greetings All,

    My 2001 740il Sport just crossed 117K here in Florida. This car has been great to me but I am at a cross roads on whether to keep the car and spend more on repairs, maintenance and fuel costs for the next 2 to 3 years. or sell it and get into a used WRX, Legacy, Audi or a GTI.

    I do not need a very big car as my needs are changed but certainly that is easy on the wallet. During the week the car is just used to short trip to the gym and grocery store and over the weekend I make 500 mile trip from West coast to East coast twice or thrice a month.

    Right now the car needs
    Tires
    Front upper and lower control arms
    Rear Ball Joints
    Front windows regulator
    Rear Window Regulator
    Speed Sensor
    Oil Change
    Front Brakes
    Fog Lamps

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated in helping me make my mind.

    Drive what excites you mostů

    You will still have to do most of the upcoming maintenance if you choose to you sell; so there won't be much savings there. Pick a car and drive what you enjoy most. If you are getting bored of the 7, one of the small cars you list will be a hoot... for a while.

    Funny, the stuff needing repair sounds very familiar. Reminds me of the stuff needed done when I still had my '01 740 Sport. Personally, I miss it but I don't miss the costly problems that arose almost every month. I'd recommend an Acura when you're done paying for your BMW mechanic's college tuition for his kids. :)
