hi guys

been a member for a while now, and i have always kept my cars on a very hush level. but i think its about time i show everyone what i have had and got now.

story time..

my family have always been into cars, really were a japanese car family, but we all know a nice car when we see one no matter what the make, so growing up we have owned civic's to skyline gtr's and still do have some :)

my First bmw purchase was a 1996 e38 740i, which was a very nice car but i never got to drive it, i loved everything about it, and i still do have it, but its much more on the side lines and will be up for sale soon,





then after needing a cheap car to go about in i then brought only a few months later an e36 318i




late last year is when i have brought my latest car.. my passion.. my lovely 740iL.. heres a quick spec list..

its an L first of all, longer wheel base
M Sports Packaged (factory)
Xenons
satnav
electric everything..
3 Tv's
rear table
blinds for all rear windows
PS2 (bringing back the old school gaming)
12" audiobahn sub 1000watts rms and there are a few other small things..

enough talking about her, here are some pics:






after it gets dirty..



Cleaned :)




and one night time shot



some interior pics:




more pics to come :)

hope you all enjoy it, any comments welcomed :) thanks

thanks for the comments guys :)

yep, your right mark, thats my brother R33 GTR. and thanks for the comment about the house, the driveway has changed a lot since then,

the car is very juicey but the main reason i brought the car after all the cool stuff was its been LPG converted, im the second owner, the last guy who owned it had it done, and he seems to have been some big time business man, i got soo much paperwork with this car, full BMW service history.. the car has the lot.. so unbelieveably greatful to own this car, :)

haha thanks mate,

i really doubt i will sell this one for a long time.. but if i do then i will definatly drop you a pm mate. but theres just something about these cars that just make them timeless.. if taken care of, they never feel or look old.

if you really want a 7, then the green ones for sale, for very cheap, i'll pm you about that. :)

yep its an E38 :)

thanks mate, i know its a project, but the car is near enough everything it should be, most of the work to be done to the car will take time but should make it a perfect cruiser (thats the plan)

thanks again, yeah my original intention was to get an e39, but when i kept searching i kept finding some nice e38's with a lot more things for a lot less money, so after i went and checked one out my mind changed completely, :)

right guys, time for an update, as some might know already the car has been having some issues, and it requires a huge amount of work done to the car, so i thought its a great way to keep some entertained and the forum updated about whats going on with this car,

the problem:


now working on the solution, which in basic words requires me to take everything off the engine and start from there,

will keep the updates rolling but work will be slowish as i have so much on my plate, giving myself a max of 2 months to get the car back on the road perfectly as i need the time to earn the money to get the parts and tools, if anyone knows where i can rent bmw specific tools please let me know :)

thanks
