BMW 7-Series 740i V8 4d Auto (94) (1995/N) - Owner Review

Fantastic. Handles like a much smaller car and can be really pushed. However, eminently comfortable, quite and relaxing when needed.

BMW 7-Series (94-02)

Value

5 out of 5

Enormous amount of car for the money. Far nicer than equivalent S-Class and better ride than A8.

Costs

3 out of 5

Service using an independant BMW specialist and not a problem. About the same as my new 325i was through main dealers. But buy a bulletproof warranty from Warranty Wise. Bits done wld have cost me loads.

Performance

5 out of 5

The 911 C4 driver on the M4 was wondering why I was still right behind him from 70 to 110mph. Perfect if de-badged.

Reliability

4 out of 5

A few minor gremlins, but with warranty peace of mind. Get brake arm buses changed after 60k miles to really tighten up steering feel.

Still classy next to new model (and better looking) as well as old S-Class. In fact, has not dated anywhere near as quickly as one might think.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Superb. I do lots of business miles and nothing comes close to this.

Was quite poor at times and expensive, hence switched to an independent specialist… they are brilliant and cost 40% less. BMW send some cars to them!!
