I would definitely buy it... I've come across a couple cheap e32 V12s but I'm still going to school and I already have 2 cars, nvm a third one lol. I would definitely consider one in the future though. The m70 I believe is 2 m30s put together. Its BMW's Frankenstein of motors lol. And yes it is expensive to maintain from what I've heard anyways. Then again they say the e32 V8 is expensive to maintain, yet its only cost me about $500/yr and I do all the work myself too. The only thing I would really advise to be careful with is the self leveling. That can be very pricey to fix, but there are delete kits for it too.

My e32 is an absolute joy to drove. Even for an old car, it gets a load of attention and it has that aggressive but classy look.

I like the V12, however be really carful pre 1997, they had some serious sulphur issues with that engine.

I never had an issue with my 1998 5.4l v12 (notice 5.4 not the original 5.2), Rolls Royce used the 5.4 v12 (M73?) in there cars as it was silent.

Not sure i would buy a car that old mainly due to the engine. I'm looking for a post 1999 (2000) 750iL.
Many Thanks
