I have a 99 740il i almost bought a 00' 750il just check the water pump, a/c pump, aux waterpump, If the nav. glitches out (sometimes it is just the battery).

I sugest the m- Parallels 18"

If need any help with any issues just post them

I sugest paying a little more and get one with as low mileageyou can find(but not abused)

when you get in the car and start it on the gauge cluster hit the button on the right it will tell you the errors on the computer.

The 750 is quick for a 5,500lbs car.

you will love it..

A girl I work with has I think the 98 750.
It rides nice.

I wanted to warn you about the bulletproof package
as an option if you find one with that.
It IS super cool, dont get me wrong on that one.
But they are prone to having the
door hinge and window motors fail.

It is unbelievably expensive to have fixed.

Get a 740il. You'll be much happier because the maintenance on a v12 will kill you ... and it isn't really much slower than a 750, unless you're talking 100+mph.

Find yourself a nice 2001 740il w/ M-parallels, navigation, HIDs ... perfect car.
