View Full Version : 1997 BMW 740i MUST SELL ASAP

03-05-2009, 03:02 PM
Hey folks,
I have a 97 740i with 155km. Fully loaded -> xenons, rear heated seats, heated steering, etc.. Black on Black combination. Selling because I've had enough of it.. I've put close to 3000 in repairs since november and I can't deal with it no more. Maintenance done -> new MAF sensor, new intake manifold, new radiator, fan clutch and belt, complete tuneup with bosh plugs, brand new tires, oil change and air filters. Services were done at bimmersport, RMP, and Clarkson Fine Cars. It now needs a set of springs which I saw a few cars being parted out which have them for cheap. (kijiji and For sale section on bimmersport). As well, it will need new brakes and Rotors. I am asking 6500 for the vehicle as is.. Price is based on Listing on trader, kijiji, and craigslist. Very reasonable considering the major services have been completed in the past few months. I don't have time to put up photos, however serious buyers can give me a call to take a look at the car. Thanks Abbas 4167221512.

thx for the comments, few interests so far .. but no cash in hand :S just for clarification.. as I've had a few ppl ask.. The driver's side front and rear springs are cracked on the last coil. therefore, the car is driveable, however if your an enthusiast like me, I would have them replaced!.. Also stating that its decently priced therefore buyer has the ability to spend a few dollars, resting assured that he/she's done the replacements themselves. To be honest, If I had not mentioned them being broken, you would not have found out unless car was lifted, tire removed, and spring coils counted on both sides. For any other concerns don't hesitate to call and ask.

looking back at my Original post, I think I may have made the car sound like a piece of crap :S .... Anyone interested I would encourage to come take a look at this car.. its in really good condition, and I'm sure its a bargain and a good buy!

In fact, the repairs I listed are not costly, i have contacts for parts, and should cost roughly 600 dollars. I have Zimmerman brakes and rotors on order for 175 for etoplines.net and a set of used springs installed for 400.. encourage any interested buyers to get in contact with me !

*thought the penny would make a diff.. FTW

Maybe if you get those fixes in it'll sell faster.

03-22-2009, 12:55 PM
Springs have been repaired, looking for 6000 for the car.. any serious offers are welcome

03-22-2009, 03:29 PM
Just a suggestion but try harder to find time and post good pictures. Maybe start a new thread that doesn't sound so negative. The way you've described it would make most people not want to bother - you almost sound like you're saying "it's not that bad, come see it" and you really want to sell it but you can't find time to upload a few pics.

I was able to take the car out this week and take these pictures.. hope this helps..!
