What a great forum - quite organised and lots of technical guidance. I have just purchased my first ever BMW, an E38 1997 740I and what a wonderful car she is - all electrics work and engine is absolutely smooth running without any sign of rough idle and starts every time. and WHAT A BEAST.
My previous 'other car' was a 1999 Omega which was a great car to drive - they simply do not build cars like they used to. My 'practical car' is a Vaxhall Astra.
I am rather cluless on many aspects of the '7' and look forward to figuring these out - like parallel M rims for example which look great but what does 8J and 9J mean(??).
