      Thanks, I just wanted to have fun with it and doing an E24 in this style was something I've always envisioned. And I did fix the steering box (it was broken when I got the car) using the Mwrench kit....

      You shoulda knocked on the door! My friends and I would have loved to check out your 1 series.

      Thanks for the pics and the kind words everyone!




      Hahaha, I find it amusing that you think I...

      I think it's just a human thing. When I'm selling something on craigslist I don't ever plan on them actually showing up until they tell me they're on the way. Don't go out of your way to reschedule...

      My post from the other E38 thread:




      ^^ If you don't feel this same way I can't trust your judgement as a person.



      This one weird trick will annoy the hell out of forum members.

      Maybe it's a California thing (less extreme heat/moisture in the air), but I have literally never had any electrical issues (modules failing, batteries draining overnight, random things not working)...

      This a-hole got called out for posting pictures of his girlfriend, then he felt the top 7 kinds of awkward. I couldn't BELIEVE #4.

      Anyway here's the deal with E38s. Find one with good paint and...

      The valley pan started leaking shortly after I bought it, so I did that myself, and when I had the upper timing covers off to replace rock-solid gaskets, the guides looked original as well, so I know...

      I wish, maybe then it would at least have fresh paint!

      The guy was just some "car flipper" who didn't know how clean this thing was compared to the average E38. That, and it had a cracked...

      We did stop in Nashville on the way back (didn't take many photos of it) and it was much more inline with what I was expecting. SO MUCH FOOD.

      Come on, this is clickbait country! I know it's not quite representative of a $1000 E38, and obviously I have a few maintenance dollars into it. Probably around $2500 including purchase price. ...

      Thanks! I wanted to take fancier light-painted photos but didn't really think of it.

      It has 167k miles after the trip. It had 147k when I bought it 8 months ago.

      Well yeah for $1k it was a definite steal, BUT, there are nice ones out there for very reasonable prices!
    13. He drove a $1000 E38 7,400 miles across the USA and back. You won't believe what broke.

      Nothing.

      Nothing broke. That's what I've been trying to tell everyone.

      As long as you buy one that's been taken care of, everything will be fine.

      Through the fire and the flames of 105F...

      I drive this about 80 miles per day because it was $1100 and I spend all the money I saved not buying or financing a newer "reliable, sensible, economy car" on gas. I don't care about the milage...

      I've sold several $3000-$5000 80s BMWs in the past, and every time without fail, someone makes a ridiculous lowball offer.

      I had a '91 E30 convertible listed at $3000 (it eventually sold at that...

      That's not how it works. If you want an older "affordable" V12, it's a full-time commitment. You have to research and learn how to work on it yourself, and where to find parts that aren't 1000%...

      The E39 is superior in every way. Although if it were me, I would get the nicest E34 540i 6-speed you can find, and then spend what you need to in order to bring the cooling system up to date, as...
