Amazing for such a big car, although not ideal for twisty, unclassified roads, obviously.

BMW 7-Series (94-02)

Value

5 out of 5

Currently fantastic - look at what they cost new!

Costs

5 out of 5

Depends on condition, but isn't always as much as you might think. BMW parts are not generally dear with a few exceptions. (e.g.ECU's)

Driving

Amazing for such a big car, although not ideal for twisty, unclassified roads, obviously.

Performance

5 out of 5

Stunning in sport mode - Warp factor nine Mr Sulu! Commands respect and you don't have to prove how fast it is, coz it just looks it anyway.

Reliability

5 out of 5

As above for costs. Get a good one and you shouldn't have any trouble, after all this was the top of the range and wouldn't look good if it wasn't reliable.

Still a head-turner - put a special plate on it and only those in the know will know!

Comfort

5 out of 5

Seats a bit slidy if you try to throw it about too much.

Not many would bother to attempt it, as much easier pickings elsewhere.

Service

5 out of 5

Not worth going to BMW for an old car, as good but expensive, naturally - find a BMW specialist, though ideally a personal referral.

Problems

Bodywork
Still incredibly immaculate - was well looked after.

Engine
Fortunately had the later Alusil engine as a dealer replacement. Beware Nikasil engines - find out about this.

Gearbox
Adaptive/Sport Auto is far better than Steptronic in my opinion.
