Hi, I currently own a 96 318i, but I was thinking about buying a 7 series. I'm hoping that you could tell me your personal experience with them. Good or bad. I was thinking between the years of 91-97. Also what are some of the best upgrades to get under the hood. I would also like to know what to look out for. Thanxs
i did a suspension mod on an 740il,w/sports suspension, thats one of the differences with the 740 and 740il,,... the shocks are different...
but anyway, overall, i don't like the 740 much, i would go with a 540 or m3 or m5, i dunno, just my personal opinion... but if u insist, the go for the 740il..., next time ur in the car, watch what happens to the mirrors when u shift from park to reverse, its kind of cool....
If you wish a "7" series, look for a good, clean 735i (not il). These have great six cylinder engines, reasonble fuel economy, and lots of room. I did not suggewst the il as it has hydraulic shocks and they are pricey to replace. Again, as close to a 1994 as possible.
