730i V8

Finished in ULTRA RARE Navarra Violet Metallic (The only one I can find in this colour in the UK!)

Additional Spec':

22" Dynamic design alloys with good tyres all round

Quad Exhaust System (Very expensive & makes the V8 sound even better! However, is quiet on the motorway)

Lowered on FK coilovers

Graduation tints (Gets darker more toward the rear of the car to keep the feds happy!)

Multi-Function ///M Steering wheel with all controls, including Cruise settings (From M5)


This car is fitted with all the toys....

Full Black Leather

Electric Front seats with Memory (Even the headrests operate electrically!)

Electric Windows

Electric Sunroof

Electric Mirrors

Remote Central Locking (BMW Alarm & Immobiliser)


Dual Climate Control

On-board Computer (OBC)

Cruise Control

Headlight Wash System

The car drives brilliantly, is nice & smooth plus has lots of power on tap. The 5-speed auto gearbox has an adaptive mode, which alters itself to how you drive in order to get the best economy. It also has 'Sport' mode, which improves performance & gives excellent response in 'Kick-Down'.

At night, the dash lights up like an aircraft! All lights work & there are NO missing pixels from any display. (This is a common problem with E38's)

MOTED 12 months

TAXED 6 months

Mileage is 139,000 & there are 3 green lights on the service indicator. But as you will know on a BMW its nothing, the engine is so smooth with no tapping noise and knocking. Im even willing to let the car stand from cold and warm up with you there just to prove this engine is genuine and nothing wrong with it.

BAD BITS :eek:(

The only issue is the OBC needs replacing. I think it's called the 'Check-Control' unit, basically when you switch the car on it performs a load of checks. In this case, it says to check headlights, side lights etc...Etc... Then after a few seconds it goes away! If you want to fix this or needs a new Speedo cluster what can be bought form eBay for less than £50.

When the steering wheel was changed for the M5 item, the airbag light came on. It basically needs a reset. Any BMW specialist can turn it off for around £10. I just haven't got around to doing it.


I have bought the parts to sort the OBC out so that will be included in the sale to (SPEEDO CLUSTER) also there is a pioneer touch screen DVD player in her if the car reaches a good price I will leave it in the car anyway thanks agen for looking

The car is located in Swindon & can be viewed any time
