1994 BMW 7 Series 740il 4.0 L V8 from North America
Get yourself a GOOD ONE, and you'll love it
Crankcase vent valve wore out.
Windshield washers stopped working.
Right rear power window has a mind of its own.
Thrust bushings wore out.
Ball-joint bushings wore out.
Climate control faceplate keeps coming loose.
Rear electric window shade failed.
A very high-performing, comfortable car, and what a head-turner! But the little (and big) things that keep going wrong/wearing out are killing me! My old '85 325e requires far less attention, and is still going strong. The 740 il is a very nice car, but requires far more maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The old beamers do keep going strong. My 1986 325i SE ploded on for 14 years until it had a collision with a ford fiesta that wrote it off. Such a lovely car gone to waste.

Helluva handsome car. lots of problems. window regulator, drivers seat, 2 transmissions (used), air conditioner unit, but my cars Still shines as good as my new 2007 Toyota Camry. infact, both are black, but the Bimmers black looks much more sophisticated. did I mention rear shade? rear self leveling shock.
