Last weekend, in Maryland, in a borrowed Explorer on my way to my niece’s Bat Mitzvah, I heard once again your Car Talk call about the BMW 745i (the CD was in the center console). Later in the day, I saw one of these beasts – white, rusting, and in need of a rear suspension.

This made me wonder about yours. Is it alive? Did it bankrupt you?

And wasn’t there another car sold to you by 3 guys, all named Mike?

Daniel replies:

It was a 735i, pictured somewhere on this website, and a most enjoyable car. It finally continued on its journey without me--plenty of life still in it at c.100,000 miles. And it was five guys all answering to the name Mike, as I recall.
