This car has been my indulgence for the last 6 months or so. I now have my smaller runabout and now this beautiful car has to go.

This is the last year of the gorgeous E38 7 series luxury sedans. They actually went up in price when BMW announced the newer model E65.

This engine is the 2.8 litre technical upgrade M52 engine. It replaced the older 3.0 litre V8 and delivered the usable torque lower in the rev range making it easier to drive and more fuel efficient without having to make the engine work too hard. It can take 91 octane petrol but I recommend using 98 octane.

0-100 km is quoted as 9.3 sec.

This is no prius, but a beautiful car to drive and super comfortable on long trips. I recently did 2 trips from here in Auckland to Tauranga and Whakatane (return, including some town driving). Fuel consumption was 9.3 ltrs per 100km and 9.0 ltrs per 100km. Not bad for a BIG car.

The boot is huge and has a 6 disc changer in a protected compartment in the boot. The spare wheel is a full size spare.

This car can take 4 adults easily. It has numerous compartments for stashing (losing) stuff. The windows are double glazed and the back seat windows have built in retractable sun blinds. The rear window has an electric blind that pops up and retracts at the push of a button.

Other flash stuff:
Cruise control (of course)
Towball
Cruise ctrl and stereo control on steering wheel.
PDC (parking assist beeps)
S-EDC (sport suspension)
DSC (traction control)
Leather memory seats

If I think of anything else I'll add it to this add.

If you're interested in coming for a look/test drive please call my cell phone during the day and my landline after hours.
