Sechs Geschwindigkeit: 2001 BMW 740i

The E38 BMW 7-series was the last BMW to be totally free of the Bangle styling that cursed covered the cars for a decade or so. Additionally the E38 was the last of the 7-series to come with a manual gearbox, but only in some markets….which I believe the USA wasn’t included.  Find this 2001 BMW 740i offered for $6,500 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.
