    e38 750i / 750il

    Been for sale on an off for a while, pre-facelift and over 100k makes me think £5.5k is expensive. Comments like 'far from concourse' also make me wonder what the condition is like up close. Avus blue is a gorgeous colour and the interior is very nice but would be better if contrasted with blue carpets.

    e38 750i / 750il

    Looks good and the mileage is appealing but it is a very early car with incorrect front indicator lenses, incorrect rear lights, a silly spoiler and few other bits wrong. Makes me wonder if its been messed with . I'd rather a later and original car really.

    Same as you Luke I had a really good 750il many years ago I shouldn't of sold. Since then I have also had a SWB 750i which I bought off here, I sold that as I had a new lease car coming. I have now realised I want to get another v12 e38.

    Piper's E39 540i Touring

    Looks great on those wheels, are they refurbed ?

    E38 750il

    I think it was £1450 actually Piper! I ran N43 BRX for 9 months and 9,000 miles and it was a good car. I had the wheels refurbished - twice, had some tyres put on, a service an MOT and some replacement of some suspension bushes. Think I spent about £1000 in the time I had it. I sold it for £1850 and the next chap sold it for £2850! Prices have certainly firmed up since then. I am in a E65 750i Sport now.

    Piper's E38 Story

    Consequence of a much more stringent MOT (TUV test?) meaning cars cost a lot more to keep on the road and those with current TUV commanding a higher price Plus second hand cars are cheap here, due in part to the deals on new ones I guess. And people perceive e39s and e38s as big and expensive to run. Having had 3 e39s I can remember and 3 x e38s I would also agree the e38 is a far better quality item than the e39 - e38 is one of the best BMWs ever in my opinion.

    E34 M5 collection for sale

    Thank you, looks good. Just needs amber indicator lenses at the front to be like my old '93 car. What are the miles, known issues with the car Is it black leather. Would be interested to know what you are looking for for the car. I am in Bournemouth so not too far from you.
