I plan on adding another BMW to the family this week. I have access to a few different 7 series models.

I am hoping to get some insight as to which direction to go. I have 4 choices.

1) 2003 745 il 120k miles

2) 1998 740 il 154k miles

3) 2001 740 il 139k miles

4) 2000 740 il 109k miles

all 4 appear to be in good condition. Allegedly everything works on all models. So which of these has been known to have the least bugs / issues? Help greatly appreciated. Ifanyone has specific knowledge about what I should be looking for, please post.

there are also a few 5 series on the lot, but I think I want a 7 series.
I am trying to imagine a world where there are only four 7 series up for sale.
