New purchase

Asked by May 24, 2016 at 05:38 PM about the BMW 7 Series

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm torn between purchasing a 2004 745i and a
2006 750i. They are the same price and both have
just under 120,000 miles on them. I'm looking for some insight that would help me make a decision
because a lot of reviews express how expensive
repairs can be and that there are a lot of them that
will need to be done.This will be my first BMW.
Thanks!

Both are the same chassis, the E65. Drive both and see. You are right about expensive. 7 Series are expensive to maintain, that is for sure. If you DIY or work on your own car you can save some money. Here is a link to a E65 forum that you can frequent and ask questions...http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/forumdisplay.php? f=126

The 7 series is the good BMW platform. Just have the funds to afford it, like mentioned above if you can't do the service. Expect very high operational costs i.e. deep pockets.
