A great car but watch out!

1990 BMW 7 Series 750iL 4dr Sedan
We purchased this car back in 2001 and it has been pretty good for us. Things have gone out include a bearing on the water pump a crack in one of the fuel lines which caused it to drip on the exhaust headers! And various electrical gremlins have plagged the car but other than those it has been a great car. Very fast for its size. Mine is a 90 and it has things like a 6 disc cd changer and all power seats and a completely electronic engine. Others have had a lot more things go worng so my adive is if your not a car person you'll become one. Dealer charges way too much and i have found many helpgul sites for making repairs. Overall do some research before buying.
That 12 is a beast. Hits 60 in about 6.5 seconds and that aint bad for its size. Things like intermittent wipers and a self leveling suspension are prett cool!
Reliability. I have not had as many problems as others have had. Gas mileage but i find driving in economy rather than sport will really increase your mpg's. i am getiing roughly 17.5-18 mpg driving in economy. Other than that this car holds up to todays standards for luxury.
