Back in 2018 I took a look at a special package offered on the E38 – the Highline:
Unlike most BMW special editions, the Highline wasn’t full of M badges and didn’t offer greater performance; it was, effectively, just some really nice colors paired up for the exterior and interior. Today’s car is not one of those, but like the Highline it’s appearing here specifically because of the color – Criollo Metallic (446). Let’s take a look:

Criollo is a pretty hard color to find if you’re looking for it. The rest of the car is pretty much a standard E38; it’s got higher mileage but condition is above average, I’d say. It does appear to have non-stock exhaust tips (and perhaps system?) and the seats look a bit tired up front, and it was in an accident in 2007. But generally speaking it looks like a clean example of the model without the more desirable sport package items. The dealer has priced the car below $8k, which doesn’t seem like a huge lift for one of these. You can find them cheaper, but my understanding is that you don’t necessarily want the cheaper ones. If you’re a fan of the unusual all-brown color scheme, a call and some negotiations might be in order.
