I'm looking at buying a 98' 750iL with 97k showing. I am leery about what maintenance has been done since it has 3 previous owners and the Carfax doesn't show any dealer maintenance other than "oil change" and "service electrical system/battery" (the latter being done 4 times in a 2-year period of time. How's your car holding up ... how much has it cost you out of pocket so far?Report it
Well, it's been almost 2 years since I got my 750...honestly, it is VERY expensive to keep! very, I needed an extra key BMW charge $280.00 and the fools couldn?t even program it. Needed tune-up, $450.00 just for diagnostic that AutoZone can do for free. Oils change light can only be re-set by BMW dealership, fuel economy deteriorates fast when driven in city, $95.00/per tank of fuel = 14 mpg!!! Minor damage in bumper cover and fog lamps $3800.00 etc. If you have an electrical problem you will be better off selling the car than fixing it! So, if you have DEEP pockets go for it because it is worth it but if you are an average dude and want a commuter vehicle, do not get it! I am trading it for a Honda or Toyota. I still love it and hate it too!Report it
