Yes, please answer Michael. Are you a 16 year old new driver, or even 40 and now learning to drive...or experienced driver asking if there is anything different about the BMW 7 series about driving one? Automatic transmission or manual? The more specific you are the more help we can be Shadidan

I bought my 1988 BMW 7 for $900- I sold it for $1200- nice car- but who would want to steal one? Nice that we get these "mystery" questions- then we can all get together and visit! Can someone grab me a beer?

am afraid to get out of the car to close the gate, and find myself turning the engine off and taking the key with me so that anyone cannot simply hop in and drive off...with MY car~

Read the owner's manual. If you don't have one, they can be ordered from BMW. The electronics in that car are complex enough, and the ZF transmission intricate enough that you don't want to take any chances. Do NOT shift it manually to a lower gear until you are sure that you won't over-rev the engine. A new engine is about 10,000 Euros, or $15,000. Before you go that quickly in a car that age, make sure it is all gone through and working correctly. There are many items that can wear, or simply deteriorate with age, and 200 km/h is not the time to find out.

Thank you Michael .. I don't have manual book . may you please send me electronic file to read it please in case you had one.


I don't, I'm sorry, but the BMW dealer should be able to get you one, or you may try google and find it that way.

I really don't OWN a Tucker....there are like four in existence....saw one personally in 1981 near the Milwaukee river in "pigsville" if you know the area sorta close to the County Stadium~

hey don't abuse your car....just getting from point a to b in style and hot with the ladies~


One thing. You have a tachometer, so just be careful that you don't go past the redline and you will be fine. You might try experimenting with speeds while you accelerate and hold gears manually until you get a feel for what speed is redline in each gear.
