I enjoy driving this car, mainly because the horsepower is amazing and the ride is excellent. Had a 1984 733i and loved it. This one is a v8 and man is it like night and day between the two. Had oil change, wiper, air filter, tire rotated and radiator fluid and man you can feel the difference and power. Like the computer. Heated seats, phone and memory seats and lumbar support. I'm in heaven and loving it. Worth the time and effort to fix whatever is wrong with it. Last a very long time.

This car had the bad engine which was replaced by BMW at 40,000 mi. At 60,000 mi, I installed factory rebuilt transmission. This car is a dream to drive and a rocket ship. I plan to keep her for a long time.

Have owned Cads, Audis, Alfas, Fords, Chevys and BMWs - this is first 7 after a couple 3s and shares a garage with a 5. This is a great used car - solid, goood looking, well designed, driver's car. A real pleasure to drive, V8 power and still averages more than 21 mpg! No problems - except lack of OEM cup holder! Wife loves dual a/c driver/passenger temperature control - excellent interior legroom - trunk is big enough to rent out. No exotic engineering, reliable traditional design. Make sure the trans has been serviced properly and oil changed frequently.

I've owned many, many vehicles for the
past 45 years; new and used; foreign
and domestic. (BMWs, Saabs, Volvos,
Hondas, Toyotas, a VW Beetle, Fords, a
Buick, a Chevy, an Olds.. and maybe
some I've forgotten!).
The 94 740i I now own is by far the
best vehicle I've ever owned.
It looks good, drives beautifully, has
plenty of power (I outrun many a car!),
and has had no problems.
The Nikasil block was a problem; but
most have been replaced. Mine has the
Nikasil and has no problems (and since
sulphur in gas was the culprit.. if
your Nikasil is OK now... don't worry
since sulphur is now greatly reduced in
