  1. The magnificent seven

    Hello everyone, I am suren from Hyderabad n new to the forum .am starting this for starting a discussion on the pros of buying, owning n restoring 15 yr old cars n why people should not be scared of owning these luxurious cars.i am restoring a 735il BMW E38 it's part of the limited edition batch of total world production of 391 cars only during 1998 - 2001.i am more of a person who believe s in used cars r value for money.the choices u make should suite your needs.anyway back to the car I got to be lucky to get my hands on this facelift bond ,transporter movie car which was tucked away and did only 49000kms when I took delivery n drove it from Chennai to Hyderabad .there were abs n traction lights on I drove without them ..scary but after a few miles was confident about the build of the car n drove on .the car being a 3500cc V8 engine has 235 bhp n to my surprise delivered a 11kmpl for the approx 900 KM's used only 1 full tank umm don't get Ur Cal's right this has a 85 litre fuel tank.now that the car has reached Hyderabad have started restoring the ultimate driving machine.this car has a BMW M options to get the tech to u the basic 7 series comes with a 2.92 final drive ratio the sport comes with a 3.15 and my car has paid option final drive ratio of 3.46 and with a high stall tourgue converter gearbox which gets a quick 0- 100 n 1/4 mile around 8 secs n 15 sec n delivery of full tourgue at lower rpm throttle.will keep updating more meanwhile n like minded people who care about these value Buster's fell free to ask.
