BMW 7-Series (94-02)

Value

3 out of 5

Don't kid yourself still takes a beating - but get a private plate on it to hold some of that value.

Costs

5 out of 5

Two words - independent specialist.

Driving

It is true what they say about driving a Bimmer - Best handling car in its class.

Performance

3 out of 5

Got beat away from the lights by a Saxo VTS but left him in my trail. If you drive like your pants are on fire keep it in Sports Mode.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Goes without saying on this one - stick to the On-board computers warning to service when asked.

Image

4 out of 5

A beast - but tarnished with an old-manish Plutocrat image - takes the edge off Ultimate Driving Machine.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Flying carpet but you still get feedback from the ground beneath you.

Security

5 out of 5

Usual alarm/immobiliser, but with the added bonus of a manual keypad for immobilising.

Service

4 out of 5

Unless still under warranty and even then there is BMW Four Plus - independent specialists.

Problems

Bodywork
The odd scuff on the rear bumper - yes even with parking sensors, the wife couldn't tell how near the gatepost was.

Engine
2.8 borders on acceptable for the size/weight of this beast.

Gearbox
On steptronic in drive, push the lever to the left for sports mode.

Other
For a 2.8 - £40 of juice lasts me 1 week and about 120 miles.
