Well my BMW car collection seems to be growing. A while ago I posted about possibly bringing up a 2000 740 that was.. Well really a parts car, but instead, now it is just that; a parts car. I took the 120,000 mile engine, put new timing guides and ccv with pcv in and put it in a PERFECT 2001 740il in silver. This car is truly amazing. 135,000 miles on it, but the previous owner absoultly loved it and from ferris bueler "just looks at it and rubs it with a diaper." Seriously. Interior 9.5 out of 10. No blemishes in seats, and they kept the floor mats in the bag they came in, while they had a second set on the carpet. The only problem is it has a broken OBD cover...I will fix that... Outside 9 out of 10. Just one single dent in the whole car, on the hood, and was touched up by them. They maintained the suspension. They did not know about the timing guides, and they ran it till it died. There is where I came in. Now I gained a silver 740il with sport package to go along with my daily grey 740il. Pictures soon.
