I have owned expensive, Mercedes and BMW's.... My favorite by far is BMW 750il.... I have owned one for the last 22 years. BEST car I have owned. Overall, the least expensive car to maintain per mile. Performance, safety, luxury, and Good looks,.. The best under valued/rated car on the road. What else comparable, can one purchase for such at today's low price?
This automobile is a real gem. 16 years old and 257,000 miles on the odometer and it still runs strong and smooth as silk. I too have the original exhaust system. The style of this automobile seems timeless. Frankly I could care less that this automobile does not have a cup holder. As with any well made German automobile, good maintenance is essential unless you wish to pay very dearly for parts. I expect to drive this automobile for another ten years.
Firm and comfortable seats. Limited slip differential (rear wheel drive). Lack of a lot of unnecessary electronics.
The 1992 7 series gives the owner classic styling that still looks good after 14 years. A little heavy on the gas, more than I'd like. The 6 cyl. auto seems reliable. Very solid, well put together car. Seems like it would protect you in a collision. Nimble, for such a large vehicle. Some people complain about the high price of repairs, but have they checked the price of repairs on any vehicle these days? Still, there are several things you can DIY to save a little money.
I've owned the 750 for over 5 years. It's been an exceptional car. The v-12 power and handling is awsome. Around town I get 16mpg 23 highway. This is great highway car. Fully loaded it climbs hills and passes with no effort. I've had minor repairs such as brakes, radiator; belts. If you do your own repairs there is a lot of informaiton on the web and an extensive manual by Bentley.
Ride; power; build; all the options that work consistantly.
