I’ve known a number of people who were strangely obsessed with the E38 7-series. It is probably something to do with the fact that it was the last of stately styled BMWs before Chris Bangle wreaked havoc on BMW’s design style for years. Anyway, a manual gearbox wasn’t available n the USDM E38 7-series, the last 7 with a stick was the E32 735i.in the USDM E38 7-series,..but you could get one on the other side of the ocean. Today’s example isn’t just a manual gearbox, but it also has a turbo diesel engine. Find this 1997 BMW 725TDS offered for $14,900 in Grove, WA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
