New here '97 BMW 760il only 30k on the odo

Hey just found this forum on Google and decided since I am on many other forums for my subys I'd join for my BMW now. I got a 1997 760il. Looks great and runs amazing. It has the red leather package from the dealer and every option you can imagine. I have some pictures but they are not very good I will get some better ones for here.

760il 1997 there's only one 760 e38 model I know of and thats the Alpina, are you sure its a 760 and not a 750,you may possibly have the only Alpina import in the U.S, some pics would be great....

The E38 generation (1994–2001) had a five-speed automatic. The engine variants in Europe were 725tds, 728i, 730i, 730d, 735i, 740i (4.0 and 4.4 L), 740d and 750i (with a 5.4 L V12 322 bhp (240 kW; 326 PS) engine, as was used in the Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph).

In the Americas, the models were sold as the 740i, 740iL and 750iL. The 740i and 740iL shared the same 4.0 L V8 engine in model year 1995, but the next year the V8 grew to 4.4L while stated power stayed at 282 hp (210 kW), though torque grew from 295 to 310 lb·ft (400 to 420 N·m). Then again coinciding with the 1999 facelift, the V8's power again stayed the same but now torque grew further to 324lb-ft, due to new variable valve timing. The 740iL is essentially a long-wheelbase 740i (hence the "L" in the model name). The considerably rarer 5.4 L V12-powered 750iL was only available as a long-body; there was no E38 750i in the US lineup. The 750iL was BMW's flagship sedan.

Hey totally think you might be right in saying its a 750il. Sorry got mixed up with something else. New to BMWs, my knowledge is all Subaru. Pics up soon from my long drive this weekend.

Beautiful, you must be really proud of it. I would love a 2001 E38 some day for an everyday family car for running around town with however many it ends up being. Welcome to the Werkz!
