LOS is an unknown quantity at this point
The 750il is rare because it has a V-12 if not mistaken. Not too many cars were built... knowing this, maintenenance & parts are not cheap. You didn't mention the miles on either car....
The 530i can be a daily driver, while the 750i is more of a weekend/long trip type of car, pure luxury. It comes down to the type of driving you do and if you can afford the maintenance on the 750il as a daily driver. From a collector point of view, the 750il wins hand down over the 530i.
Rule of thumb for v-12 engines is to keep 2K for maintenenance issues per year as the car gets older and miles add up.
I almost bought a '95 at one point... It was nice!

82k... Yeap, you'll start putting money into the car very soon especially if you decide to drive it everyday and the amount of miles you drive...
Some of the things to come to mind around 100k if you haven't done them yet are

Brakes
spark plugs
seal gaskets
transmission service
catylic converters (1k each if not mistaken)
water pump/fan clutch
alternator
Inspect struts (suspension)

Anyway, I'm not saying you have to do all that but those are things that will come sooner than later. Keep the car if you can afford the maintenance.
