Timeless Classic — Great car, stereo could be better, well built, well designed. Maintenance costs fair, very fair compared to my wife's Mercedes R class. Traction control works flawless in all weather conditions. A big car that handles well in all conditions even when you push it hard in the corners its very stable and predictable.

Sporty Shorty — Semi-classic BMW. Originally purchased at the auction as a lot car intending to sell, but soon fell in love with everything about it. Have never found one that was in as good of shape cosmetically as this. I spent about $1500 in parts and my own labor doing preventative maintenance.

Pros

The car is a 2000 750iL V-12 360hp, not a 750Li, it has tremendous power.

Cons

The car is expensive to maintain.  Parts and service at a BMW dealership will cost you, a lot, but the service is guaranteed for the life of the car.

Even Though The Car Is 13 Years Old It Is Very Impression When Cleaned And Waxed. — What I like most about this car is that it is economical on gas consumption on long trips. I drove the car from Washington, DC to Durham, NC on less than a tank of gas. The on-board computer kept me abreast of fuel consumption at 65 mph and the remaining distance to my destination. With gas prices at $4.00 in the Maryland area this was a great benefit. What I don't like about the car is that it is expensive to maintain and consumes at lot of gas on short trips.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Ultimate Driving Machine! — Great car! Easy to keep, easy to maintain, Joy to drive! Had some issues when I bought it 4 years ago, fixed all of those, upgraded the navi, fixed cd player, everything works and its a pleasure to drive! Will buy another one when I decide to get rid of this one (if I ever do!)

Great! — BMW are great cars, the ride is wonderful.The leather seats with heat cozy! Sunroof perfect for breezy days! I wish it was less expensive for routine maintenance or minor repairs. Thinking about upgrading to a Mercedes, but same situation lol!!

Own One At Some Point In Your Life - Then You Make The Decision. — The only car I have ever owned that I miss in SF. The Alpina B12 version is the most perfect performance sedan made. The only complaint is the GPS interface. Regardless, its the only car I've owned that makes a 16 hour road trip not only comfortable, but something to look forward to.

Too heavy and hard to upkeep

Expensive — Heavy Car, Expensive Repairs but great for long trips. Weak timing chain , has decent acceleration but its a very heavy car. When topped off, its even heavier due to its huge gas tank. Very expensive to fill up. Looks amazing though, very elegant.

Find Somebody Who Has One And Become Their Best Friend, Drive Theirs. — At over 4700 lbs this car is a tank, but the 5.4L V12 means it still hauls! The interior is the most comfortable of any car I've ever been in and laid out in beautiful fashion with all instruments and controls right where you want them. This is also the most fun car I've ever driven, the V12 makes a sound unlike any other, snarling with power yet elegantly refined. This is by far one of the most impressive driving machines ever created in keeping with the highest BMW standards. Driving this car, however, is where the fun ends. Owning it is entirely a different story. With a 25 gallon tank and an engine that calls for premium gas filling up isn't cheap even in the best of times. Repair costs are astronomical and not nearly as uncommon as they should be on a car like this. One must remember that despite the luxury car comforts this is still a performance car underneath it all.

Pros

V12...V12....did I mention V12?

Cons

Repair costs enough to scare Donald Trump

65

Yep-it's A V12 — 5.4 Liter V12 (330hp/350lb), decent performance for a 5500 lb car, braking is decent, handling is relevent to it's weight, but still nice. Quality is outstanding but repairs are costly regardless how minor. Appearance is still decent for a car of this age. Ownership cost is not bad but definitely not cheap, definitely recommend getting a warranty with the vehicle. Fun factor is awesome, seats five with a trunk the size of a Prius and still does 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds, not Trailblazer SS fast but still matches power with an abundant of luxury items. Hard to believe this vehicle sold for 100k when new but nice that depreciation put it at a level the common man can afford. Must have M series rims, otherwise it comes off as your grand daddy's Beemer. Power everything spoils you silly and the Sport option on the transmission (also linked to the suspension) creates a whole different vehicle during "spirited" driving conditions. I love this car as I did when I owned one in Germany. Limited to 155mph stateside but I personally know this vehicle will do well over 175mph tuned properly.
