    hi, my name is lee.
    I just got my E38 728i 2 weeks ago and love the car. It has a few niggles, like the battery is nackered i think as if you have the radio on when engines off the car wont start but its ok if you dont. Im going to order a new one next week (payday), I checked the alternator output and thats ok. I think the battery is the original so its lasted well!
    The car only set me back £10! yes im a good swapper! it went like this:

    March 2009 bought MR2 no test for £230, tested it so cost me £260 OTR, swapped for pug 306 convertible, swapped again for ford cougar v6 + £250 cash, swapped again for celica GT4 then swapped again to e38 728i! bargain!

    To be honest...i was going to swap again for a van as i need one for my work but i have been trying to sell it for cash for 2 weeks but no takers oh well, i may end up keeping this one!

    If im keeping it i will do a couple of mods (which i will post up for help) so i will keep you all busy!

    This isnt the first 7 series i considered getting. back in 2003 i nearly bought a 740i 't' reg from a local bmw dealership, loved the car but the reason i didnt get it is i was going through a mad stage and bought a 300zx instead! never mind!

    Im a part time car valeter by trade (i also have my own handyman business) so the car is now spotless and machine polished. took me 4 hours to clean the beige mats! some people think i go over board cleaning my cars, ie engine completly de-gunked, even took out the centre console to clean underneath! but i take pride in my cars.....also got a shogun and an impreza sti ra.

    hers a couple of pics of her:






    well thats it...thanks for a great site!

    lee
