This next car comes as a tip from Matt V who writes: Big, shockingly nice for the miles, and very cheap. Next owner is going to ruin this thing for sure. (Coincidentally, that is also Kelly Clarkson’s tinder profile). Anyway, I think Matt is on to something with his appreciation for the long wheelbase BMW E38 generation 7-series, because these cars are build to a higher standard. They ride as nice as any Bentley from the same era, but are as reliable as a Volkswagen. Not sure if that is a compliment or not.

Pleased to offer my beautiful 2001 BMW 740i l to a new owner, hopefully an enthusiast like myself. I purchased this car about 2 years ago, and it’s been a great car. You wouldn’t believe it had over 200,000 miles on it! Drives like new and looks amazing for its age.
