1989 BMW 750iL – REVISIT

After two months on the market, this clean and low mile 1989 750iL remains for sale. The “Buy It Now” price has been lowered to $9,750 – while these E32 V12s are known for expensive repairs, this one looks to be one of the best that’s been for sale lately and offers the buyer a lot of car for the money.

The below post originally appeared on our site January 24, 2014:



I’m not alone in my preference for the E38 7-series; its minor updates over the E32 seemed to really take the design to a new level of cleanliness and aggression. Relative to the well cared for E38s that still roam the streets looking amazing, most E32s look beat up, frumpy, ridden hard and put away wet. All that changes today though, as this is hands down the best E32 I have ever seen. Rocking lowering springs, M-Parallels, and a nice front lip, this black V12 beauty is the business. It’s not just a pretty face, either; it’s covered just 37k miles in its life and has had tiny issues tended to. It takes a really nice E23 for me to be more attracted than pretty much any E38; this is the first E32 that’s really ever required a second, third, and fourth glance.

Here is the story on this excellent example of the BMW 750IL. I was messing around one night looking on Ebay at vehicles. I noticed that this vehicle was from a local seller. I went to look at it, and was stunned at how beautiful this unit was. I bought the car on a whim. Unfortunately, I now need cash more than this car. I have only put 35 miles on it, and then stored it in my warehouse. The previous owner being a perfectionist, had put at least 10k into upgrading certain items, as in replacing the headliner, which at this age tends to sag. This car is very fast, and gets excellent gas mileage considering that it is a V12. If you can avoid lead foot, you get around 22 mpg. Here are other features:

Bluetooth stereo/hands free phone. New V rated low profile tires. Dual mode suspension replaced: new struts, new springs. Have papers for work done. New battery. New emblems. Interior perfect. Will include original BMW phone that came with vehicle. BMW M wheels no curb rash. New hazard switch. Original paint, body 10/10 shape. All glass excellent. New A/C compressor and freshly recharged with R-12A Freon. New rear trunk shocks. All body rubber replaced (i.e. rubber around door handles, rubber around sun roof, etc.) Dash is in perfect condition.

There are plenty of reasons NOT to buy a V12, or an E32, or a 7-series, or a BMW in general. But if you happen to like all of those things, I can’t imagine a better example. Low-mileage and dead sexy, I will henceforth compare all E32s to this.

    I’d say the people that want it don’t have the money and the people with money don’t want it. What are you going to do?

    My dad sold his ’90 750iL with 63K miles 2 years ago. It was a fantastic car and contrary to popular belief it was quite reliable. The few issues it had in over 20 years of ownership were not wallet busting in any way. The funny thing is that he only sold it because of the weak headlights (he’s in his 80s now) and horrible gas mileage plus he wanted something smaller with a warranty and modern conveniences.

    This one is gorgeous but as much as I love E32s, the E38s do drive better and with the sport package also look better than most sedans on the road today.

    This is a monster! the ground effects package is really, really well done, tasteful and very rare. I’m glad they lowered the price, it makes a little more sense now. Somebody will buy this, do the big oil changes every – what, 1k-2k miles, drive it carefully and it could provide a good more duration of power, comfort and style. Always been a fantasy of mine to have one and take friends out to a steakhouse on a cold winter night.
