Not quite a new member but back into the world of BMW ownership

11 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I happened to come back to the side of car ownership after nearly a year without(the joys of company cars).



Saw this gem of a 740il on a Facebook for sale page and after realising what wheels were on it, I knew I had to have it. Booked in a viewing for the Saturday and took it away that afternoon. Unfortunately the registration has lapsed so the car needed need recompliance before it was ready for summer cruising.

It's now re-registered and road legal. New battery and wheels fitted. Brake fluid and coolant done. Brake rotors and pads all round.

Yet to do:
Oil service
Cut and polish
Interior clean
Rear tyres

Bonnet struts

Centre caps for wheels

A/C regas

Paintless dent removal



It drives so nicely for a car with over 200km's!

New wheels

Thought I'd leave a couple pics of my old static E36 here too. Miss that ruined POS every now and then

The wheels in photo one suit the car far better than the ones in  photo two.

I 100% agree with you there. However, they have been removed for a refinish. After that I will look into what to do with them.

Cool they are getting a fresh up put them back on  please. It is a personnel choice thing in the end also your vehicle. That said being a 7, body style, so called prestige and being the so called flagship model of  BMW calls for certain standards to be upheld or so I'm told  yea right ;).

Looks great with the BMW BBS wheels in the first picture.

E32s are a nice car, much like an E34. Classic BMW motoring.

Yeah BBS's look good. What rims and tyre specs you running on those other rims, they look a bit odd to my eye.

Here my old E34 on 17" BBS RN's which are similar

They do look very good too. Was looking at them.

Most likely selling the car when I've finished cleaning it up however so no more cash to be sunk into it other than servicing costs at this stage.
