FS: '99 E38 740i w/ sports pkg

'99 BMW 740i E38 7 Series w/ Sport Package - $3500

I'm located in Oakville, ON.

Selling as-is, but it just passed full emissions within last 6 months and should pass safety just fine, was my daily driver for 3 years and was religiously maintained. Black leather and walnut interior. Lovingly cared for, but it's just time for me to move on as I can't give this beauty the attention an older vehicle needs. Just over 250k km mileage. Needs a tiny bit of cosmetic work (gas cap hinge, simple repair of internal hinge).

LOTS of new parts installed within last few years including (newest first):

- front grilles
- hood latch + release cable
- thermostat
- minor bodywork, paint, rustproofing
- brakes all around including turning front rotors
- rear wishbones
- front ball joints
- radiator
- water pump (metal internals, not the cheap plastic ones)
- alternator
- accessory fan
- valve cover gaskets

Summer times ~2 years old, winter tires have 1 season on them (continental) - there are only 3 of them, one was damaged and not replaced.

Additional addons:
- DICE kit (iPhone/iPod audio + full wheel controls for track change, etc)
- iPhone ODBII cable for diagnostics (runs with any iOS device with free software download)
- tinted windows

$3500 OBO, located in Oakville. Looking for someone to keep giving this car the attention it deserves. Lowballers will be ignored.

It's automatic (they all were AFAIK).

No rust, it had almost $2k of body work and paint done < 1 year ago. It had a bit of door skin bottom repaired and around gas cap and trunk latch (common places for this car). It was done at Luxury Auto Body in Etobicoke (I think they might be members here too).

I don't have interior pics (yet), but I will try and take some tomorrow. Interior is in excellent condition aside from the cup holder which is functional but semi-broken (again very very common with this model).

At $3500 asking it doesn't come close to the parts in it alone, but I need it gone and to go to someone who will take care of it

Oh sorry, it's got the Steptronic transmission as well (part of the sport package). Here's the info from the wikipedia page on it:

Yes but don't you think the seller would have mentioned that in the ad?

I did a manual swap on my e34 525 wagon, I mentioned it when I sold it.

Seems like a solid deal. So "the bad" list is repairing a gas lid assembly? Really?
