BMW 7-Series (87-95)

Value

4 out of 5

Cheap to buy second-hand and SO MUCH car for the money!

Costs

3 out of 5

Not as bad as you'd think - fuel costs and servicing pretty high, but you don't buy these to save money!

Driving

5 out of 5

Absolutely superb to drive - handles well, quick enough!

Performance

4 out of 5

Not too quick off the mark, but always willing and completely unbothered by steep hills!

Reliability

4 out of 5

Takes a little while to fire on mornings, but never fails to start. Not let me down in any way yet!

Image

4 out of 5

Your friends will think you're loaded, but does have a kinda gangster/pimp image (or so I've been told!)

Comfort

5 out of 5

Mine doesn't have air-con, but I don't care. So very very comfortable in every other way.

Get an Insurance Quote

We've gathered the biggest companies on the market in one place to save you money.

Security

2 out of 5

Factory fit alarm on turn of key - no remote or immobiliser. But insurance company made me get one fitted to cover me against theft!

Service

1 out of 5

I use a local BMW specialist and I'd advise anyone else to!

Problems

Bodywork
Had a scrape when I bought it, but I've filled and painted it and it looks fine. No problems with rest of bopdyworl - still looks new!

Engine
A little slow to fire in the mornings, but uses no oil and runs at perfect temp.

Gearbox
None - silky smooth as the day she was born.

Other
Nothing. Leather still looks fresh, carpets are all excellent for a 16 year old machine, just a fabulous car!
