Has Dinan software, Dinan intake manifold, window tint, Euro center armrest, license plate delete strip and Umnitza Orion V2 angel eyes. Car is in great shape, super clean, interior is incredible, leather is immaculate. Fully detailed often and parked in a heated garage.

All new BMW coolant
New Serpentine Belt and A/C belt

The Bad:

-Previous owner parked the car outside his garage under a cover while he was remodeling his house. The cover unfortunately created a hazy affect on the clear coat on the hood, it is only the hood, and no peeling to anything, the entire car shines up really well. In addition, there is a small dime sized rust spot at base of driver's door where the drain is, right on the edge. Planned on fixing this and respraying the entire front end just did not get to it, metal is all still there obviously. There are a couple tiny dings, but nothing ridiculous. On the plus, that is the only rust on the car!

-A wheel bearing is starting to make slight noise, checked them all and all are tight and no really odd noises

-Car has the MkIV Nav, I replaced the DVD drive(common issue) last year and has worked great since, the past couple weeks though, the GPS location is unknown. Checked the antenna and all seems fine. Other than that, the monitor works great with ABSOLUTELY no pixels burned or anything, same goes for the instrument cluster.


Planned on keeping the car for a very long time, and did all the preventative maintenance. Have gone on many trips with the car all over, including Canada and along the east coast and put a lot of miles on it in the past year. Car pulls very strong and seats 4 people in luxury. The E38 7 is arguably one of the last best 7s and this one is VERY rare being a true M-sport in Imola Red. Compliments everywhere you go. All records, manuals and both master keys. Hate to sell it.

$9,500 obo

Oh yes yes yes. I had a 01 740i m-sport in imola red with the black sport interior and rear privacy shades, about a year ago. Similar mileage but in PERFECT shape. Sold it for $12k .... Very hard to come across, so this a good deal!
