1983 BMW 7 Series 733i 6 cylinder Gas
An excellent long distance cruiser
Sunroof needed realigning.
1 of its 2 fuel pumps needed replacing.
Added new more powerful headlamps.
This is an excellent car. So good that I've decided to drive it in Canadian winters for the first time in its 20 year life. Very stable on snow and ice. I used to drive this car only in summers, depending on our Chrysler and Acura during the winter. When I'm not driving the BMW I miss it immensely and as soon as I get back into it for a long cruise I immediately understand why. Very comfortable and reliable as long as you stay on top of small things that crop up due to the cars age. Still drives and handles better than a lot of new cars I've driven.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Mine is an 82 733i. Very nice car which I bought to replace my 320i which was too worn out to start anymore. This car is much more solidly built, a true BMW ultimate driving machine. AC & heat don't work, but I knew that when I bought it for a song in 2004.
Mine had 134,000 miles on it, now has 143,000. Super nice freeway cruiser. About 20 mpg. Very safe handling, and feeling car.
I had to speed up the idle to get it to run smooth. Probably a bad idle control solenoid.
The best thing about this car is it's classic good looks. It seem to be at least 10 years ahead of its time. Of course being a low production car, parts can be a little hard to find. I would recommend this car 100% if you can find a really good one for a reasonable price.
