This is unusual for me but I looked at a 97 BMW 740i and it caught my eye being so clean even with 100k. I did some research and they had some issues..... and being a BMW can get expensive. The V/8 was smooth and no timing chain noise. Everything worked and the interior was in good shape with the leather seats not worn and cracked. New radials with oem BMW wheels. I only ventured out of the box with being a complete Chevy guy because it was priced fair and I never owned a luxury car. Also it could be registered as historic and with historic insurance. So I made a deposit on it and wanted to get as much feedback as I could about these cars. Researched the net and spoke with my son who works on exotic cars. At this point it sounds like a go but looking for feedback on anyone who has owned one. Thanks. Greg.
