well first off i live this car best experience yet drives great for having so much mileage on the car had the car a few months maintenance was kept up to date. very fast car never have problems going around people on the high way.
I couldn't resist discounted price of 12 cents on dollar compared to new price for 12 yr. old BMW in almost perfect condition in/out, & only 106K miles on clock. Yes, gas is a downside with avg. of 16/22, but car makes you grin every time you drive. Handles like a dream, lane changes at speed are a trip!!! I do my own work on it, manual and multimeter in hand. Wish I had small hands, only minimal space under bonnet. Devil of time tracking cooling leak (hole in the coolant resevoir); A/C went 1 year after purchase; torque conv. crashed after 3 years, otherwise very few problems. Aftermarket parts abound with research, but still PRICEY. Styling is timeless. Luxury and POWER!!
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.

This is an excellent car for the price
in today's market. It has numerous
features that are shared with few cars
today. The fuel economy (14/20mpg)
is decent for a car of this size
(4,800lbs.) and motor (304cid V12).
This is certainly one of the most
entertaining cars I have owned thanks
to it's OBC and electronic-hydraulic
transmission. Unfortunately my car was
totaled from flood damage about a
month ago with 183,000 miles on the

What a car! Here is a chance to
purchase a car that went for over
$70,000 for 10 cents on the dollar.
The features this car has rivals
current luxury cars and it's 12 years
old. The pickup is tremendous for a
car its size, and it is the most
comfortable car I've ever owned. A
pleasure to drive on multi hour trips.
A must buy!!
