    Long shot I know but thought I'd advertise on here as well just in case anyone fancies becoming a chauffeur :D

    It'll break my heart to sell this, and I've been up and down about putting it up for sale for the past 6 months but I need to use my head for once rather than my heart, so here we are:

    It's a 1996 4.4l V8

    Individual model due to the Champagne Nappa Leather interior, with underbonnet chassis sticker to match

    Alpina wheels and front spoiler fitted by original selling dealer for the first owner, including matching Alpina tyre pressure sticker in the door shut

    3 owners
    140,000 miles
    Full service history
    Lots and lots of receipts from the previous owner, very well looked after car

    Interior is in extremely good condition with no bolster wear on any of the seats (seat cover used most of its life)

    Any exterior blemishes will be sorted before the car goes, and I also have a brand new full set of Alpina decals for the whole car for when the paintwork is finished :cool:

    Price is £5,000
    Located in Stevenage

    I think this is the best looking 7 series bmw produced a very sleek looking car where all the other 7 series are like barges in comparison.

    Lovely wagon.
    Just a few weeks ago I was debating whether to look for an e38 to scratch that itch or a hybrid F15 X5. Your car looks right up my street ( not literally, unfortunately) but I went the X5 route and am now wafting around in silence rather than V8 burble.

    Good luck with the sale.

    After my current modern 3 Series and as I get towards semi-retirement, I'm seriously looking at some classic BMW wheels as an everyday driver. And I'd be very happy with one of these. Not sure I could stomach the fuel bill unless it's a diesel though.

    It's worth the fuel bill when you have a V8 under the bonnet.

    I bought an e39 535i about 4 months ago as i sometimes need a 4/5 seat car, instead of the 3 zeds I have. It is 21 years old, done 104000 miles and is in great condition. What a great car! and I get about 25 to the gallon.........If I had the money I would have bought a 740 or 750.....now that is a perfect car!!!

    That was quick!

    You do realise that with the Z3 and 740 all you would have needed to complete the James Bond BMW collection would have been:
    1x Z8
    1x 1200rc motorbike
    !
