Overall, this car is in excellent shape and will not need any maintenance for many thousands of miles. The engine is smooth and powerful and the transmission shifts smoothly. While this car is in great condition, it isn't new, and of course isn't perfect. But it also isn't $80,000, which is what you'd have to spend to get one that's brand new (and perfect). For that $72,050 discount, you'll have to accept some imperfections. While very glossy, the paint has some minor flaws and dings. The leather interior shows some signs of wear, but there are absolutely no rips or tears.  

I'm a longtime BMW enthusiat and 20-year member of BMW CCA. I've always loved the E38 and consider it to be among the very last of the truly good looking large BMWs, marking the end of an era for BMW. The newer ones are of course great cars, but lack the timeless elegance of the E38 and will not be likely to age as gracefully. I have the title in hand and my asking price is $7,950. The car can be viewed and test driven at any time. For any questions, or set up a test drive, I can be reached at (478) 918-4375 - call or text - and by email using This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

If this listing is active, the car is still available - I will remove the listing when it sells. So if you're reading this message, there is no need to call or email just to ask if it's still available. I’m not really interested in any trades - except possibly for another BMW, but only with a manual transmission. And please, no dealer inquiries. If I were interested in trading it in, I would have done so already :-)
