When I tell people that I publish a website called Daily Turismo, they cock their head sideways — like a puzzled golden retriever — and ask follow up questions. To describe DT, I use words like “curated collection” and “used car listing aggregator” to describe these hallowed pages. But the truth is, I should just send them this next car, because it describes DT in a way that is unequivocally precise; a mostly modern and supremely comfortable BMW 7-series with a salvage title and 144k miles on a 4.5 liter DOHC V8 that is offered for less than four large. Yes, it will have strange random issues that you’ll need to search on forums and videos for solutions…but you’ll end up smarter and better by the time you can afford a better car.

If you pay attention on this website you might notice that we typically don’t feature cars that have been covered by any of the big players in the classic car blogosphere, such as Bringatrailer, Jalopnik’s Nice-price-or-crack-pipe by the always entertaining Graverobber (someday I’m going to hire that guy to write for this site!), autoblog, hooniverse, […]
The 745i was a turbocharged brute of a luxury sedan from BMW before it started building M-cars. It was only available in mainland Europe, so you can only get grey-market imports here in the USA, and price will be a premium. However, a few extra dollars gets you a 3.2 liter turbocharged inline-6 making 252 […]
The E21 BMW 7-series was a large upmarket sedan produced from 1977-1987. The hottest version (the 745i) was only available to continental European customers, but a few have immigrated to the USA. This 1985 BMW E21 745i Turbo Grey Market import is for sale in San Diego, CA for $3999 via craigslist. This small bumpered […]
