    Best Bmw I Have Owned, Bmw 750il 5.4l V12 — This car is huge and its a long wheel base model (limo) but I must say it has the same 0-100kph performance as the same age M3 :). It was the first 4-door Super car in the world but not to be confused with its little brother the 740I V8

    Pros: Awsome power, 100-200kph is unbelievable, the V12 motor is one of the most balanced motors ever made, The motor was used in the same age Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph when BMW Bought Rolls-Royce in 1995

    Cons: Rear seats don't fold down as they are 4 way electric rears, so no extra boot access but damn comfy for the kids lol

    My Two-tone Beemer -- Gretchen — This is the second "older" BMW that I have owned and I've enjoyed both. They have their issues, after all they are over 20 years old, but they are still fun to drive. This is a big six cyliner with an automatic and gets 26 mpg on the highway. Not bad for a "big" car, which it really isn't. Ride quality is excellent as is build quality. Back when these were built they were exceptionally expensive, the sticker on this one was over $35,000 in 1987. I love the appearance of these cars. My first was an '83 733 with a 5 speed. I added aftermarket wheels, Dunlop tires, a rear spoiler and dropped the front an inch and a half. Wish I had pictures to post.

    Pros: Ride quality, appearance, build quality

    Cons: it's old and needs tlc

    Good — Bought it used from a party, have served me very well over 5 years, but it is aging and the age is now showing even though I try to keep up the maintenance. Undoubtedly, it is fun to drive, especially long distances. Driving from California to Colorado was a breeze.

    Pros: FUN TO DRIVE, QUITE DURABLE

    Cons: COST OF OWNERSHIP IS HIGH

    1988 Bmw 735il — Its a BMW. No matter what year it is, Bimmers are classy cars!!! Runs like a dream and handles the same. Has a six cylinder but doesnt give up power. For an average person this car would probably cost a bit for repairs but if you are mechanicaly inclined it is not hard or expensive to do the work yourself.

    Pros: Has every little gadget you could ever hope for.   Plus power reclining rear seats.

    Cons: Has 215,000 miles but that doesnt really change a thing.

    A Cargret — Worst car I have ever owned. Its regulator busted a long time ago. The engine, transmission, and interior all had issues. The car took too much gas. I can't rag on this car enough. Never buy this car unless you plan on investing thousands of dollars to repair it. Not a car to buy.

    Pros: Luxurious Interior

    Cons: Everything went wrong in it

    You Wont Find A Better Car — WHAT CAN i SAY, A true animal of a machine, with style and performance to match. True luxury at its best, and its a 98 not 96. Fun fun fun out on the road with a smile from ear to ear !!

    Pros: Smooth and pure luxury to drive

    Cons: Bit heavy on fuel if using the sports box option ;-)
