I’ve tried to show off some great classic BMW M cars recently. The early factory M cars have so much going for them: great power, subtle but aggressive looks, rarity and cache. Like Ben, I am a big fan of the E38 7-series, but this example has none of the qualities that made those M cars great, and no matter how hard this seller will try to convince you, there has never been an M 7-series. His taste is about as good as his spelling, but I thought it was still worth sharing. If anything, just to point and laugh, but who knows, maybe someone wants the “CUSTOM SWEAD INTERIORS” and can appreciate that “LOT OF MONY HAS BEEN SPEND ON THIS CAR.”
There are good facets of this car, but it’s just too much. The red is actually a very nice shade, but doesn’t really suit the 7-series. The wheels would look good without the painted rim, the steering wheel is similarly tainted. The “red” (pink) roundels can go, along with the front winglets, the M badges on the door sills, front grill, engine, and the Pimp-My-Ride amplifier and speakers.
Once those basics have been taken care of, it’d be an attractive 7 series under $15k that somehow has “MORE HORSE POWER THAN REGULAR 740.” Until then, however, it’s just a good exhibit (Xzibit?) of what not to do to your BMW.
