Performance BMW needs your help!

Hi guys,

First of all I hope you're all well. I have a bit of a dilemma and thought you'd be the best people to ask. I'm featuring an 1998 E38 730i LS that's been imported to Belgium (and Germany before that), the owner tells me it was only ever made in the US, and that it had a much longer gearbox and is a 336bhp 3.0 V8. Forgive me for my ignorance, but I can't find any info anywhere about this model and if anyone can shed any light (ideally asap as deadline is looming and I need to get something written!) I'd really appreciate it!
Please reply to lwoodhams@unity-media.com

Thanks in advance!

AFAIK, the European version would not have been built in the US. I'd look here

Thanks - I did look there but no mention like I said the owner is adament it's American import and only ever made in the US, hence I'm a bit confused!

I don't think so, and the horsepower figure is ridiculous.
