BMW 750il 1991 V12
What's up guys, I have the opportunity to buy a BMW 750il and I was wondering what kind of things should I watch out for, is it a good investment, and would you recommend to purchase this car. The body is in great shape, the interior is in great shape and it is in working order except some few wear and tear from over the years. The car has 100,000 miles, and the car comes with history reports of the previous owners maintenance history and the purchase at a certified BMW dealership since he has owned the car 20 years. The carfax shows no accidents and everything seems to be intact. Is it a good investment?

great cars, but there's not much e32 content on this forum.

i had a 1989 and loved it. unfortunately i would have cost more than what it was worth to keep on the road in just parts. i am able to do most of the repairs myself, as i was in the automotive repair fields for many years.

i suggest, llink here:

there's much much more e32 specific content there.

They are great cars to drive, and are fun on the highways.

as an investment? definitely not. They are a mass production 20+ year old V12 powered electronic nightmare to most people. Very few cars could i recommend as an investment...

one thing that comes to mind is many of these cars had electronic/hydraulic suspension system. (EDC/SLS) these system even when maintained fail due to age and seals going bad. They are EXTREMELY expensive to replace, and many people ditch the systems for regular shocks. which still are not cheap.

If you love driving and want a super smooth highway machine then go for it! If you want a car to flip in a couple years and make any money then forget it.

@alexvaldelamar - What did you decide to do? I have a similar "opportunity" ... '91 750iL for sale. Looks good, 120K miles on it. But, I'm just not sure I'm ready to pull the trigger.

What has your experience been like? Did you find any additional info out on the web?
