BMW 7-Series (94-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Initial depreciation very steep, makes them a very good used buy. I bought at 3 years old with low mileage and enjoy luxury motoring for family hatchback money.

Costs

3 out of 5

Good buy. Not needed a service yet. 25 mpg average. All sounds pretty good though, I am not kidding myself it will continue to depreciate at higher than average levels.

Performance

3 out of 5

Ok the progress is more leisurely than rapid. Has a reaspnable turn of pace when pushed.

Reliability

4 out of 5

I have only had the car for about 7 months and about 8k miles and no problems so far. I bought from a main dealer with a warranty and wouldn't expect any failings at this stage.

Image

4 out of 5

Classic lines, the badge and the equipment tally help (I have the Comms Pack with TV etc.). I expect it to fade as the 'new' model becomes more common. Quite a few old tired looking examples on the roads doesn't help to maintain the image.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Very comfortable, very quiet all helps to enhance the luxury feel.

It has not needed a service as yet. The sale was handled well and was very efficient (very different a MB I bought recently!).
