BMW 7-Series (94-02)

Value

1 out of 5

Depreciation is horrendous at £600-£800 per month.

Costs

2 out of 5

Only use expensive BMW garage service to keep warranty up to date.

Driving

Amazingly chuckable despite its size! Must have Steptronic gearbox - a delight to use.

Performance

3 out of 5

Get it "chipped" and use super unleaded - this sharpens the car up!

Reliability

3 out of 5

Apart from heating/aircon problems, excellent. Drive 8,000 miles, service it, drive 8,000 miles…

Service

3 out of 5

Excellent extended warranty that cannot be bettered! But BMW dealer servicing is very expensive compared to BMW specialists.

Peeling lacquer on the bonnet.
