This is an absolutely incredible
driving car, nothing can touch the BMW
driving experience. However, as
exceptional as this car is in driving
and performance it's equally
disappointing in it's reliability. My
car has been in the shop for so many
issues I can't recall them all. The
majority of the problems were fixed
under warranty but I had to have the
radiator replaced,new suspension
components, a complete new ignition
system ( this one was especially fun
since the car would not shut off with
the key completely removed from the
ignition,)along with just nagging
I have owned over 20 European cars and this is without a shadow of a doubt, the Best driving, most powerfull ball of fun I have ever driven. Elegant and sporty. The only thing I would do different would be to buy the "S" version next time... I will buy another. I have put over 150k on this one and things may start to wear out.
Power is extreme,, style is great handling is superior
Over the last 12 years I've owned a 528i and then briefly owned a 2004 M3 (what a machine that was) and for the last couple years I've owned a 98 740i with a Dinan package. Amazing deep blue car that is a joy to drive. The problems just started after about 106K miles...oil leak, spark plug issue, heater quit working, power steering leak...ugh. Just got a call from the shop wanting more than $4K to fix it all. I feel the car is a beautiful car but freaky to spend this much all at once. I just put brand new tires and brakes 6 months ago as well. All in all...I haven't driven a car I like better except for the M3...another story...just make sure you are aware that the big 8 cost more to fix.
I love the look. It's stately while sporty.
The wrap around plastic around the seats are ridiculous. I've had luck with the cup holders on this car. Just wish it would grow old gracefully.
This car is an amazing performer. It outshines many of the newer BMW'S . Mine has 204000 miles on it . Ive replaced the water pump , changed the oil , and thats about it !! WHO CARES ABOUT THE CUP HOLDER!
I love my 7. just about the funest car ive ever driven. Big , luxurious, sexy body lines,responsive v-8. I get an average 22-23 on the highway, 21 all day in the city.
nothing comes close to the beuty of this car. It is silver with grey leather. Smoked lenses complete this beuty. I wouldnt trade her . Shes a keeper . I'll probably drive her till'
the wheels fall off.
:) Scoop one of these up
. . .if you can find a decent one .
I seriously considered a used lexus
before driving the 7 series bmw. This
98 had only 25K miles and was garaged.
However, it needed some deferred
maintenance and since has been
terrific. Elegant and muscular, it is
the perfect car for highway driving.
Power, handling and classic styling.
