Hey guys,

I'm putting up my daily driver for sale. I recently took a new job which requires me to drive rather long distances and I simply can't afford the gas mileage anymore. This was the last model of the E38 body style, and the best of the 7 series bmw models IMO. The car has a clean title, never been in an accident, and very clean inside and out. Here's some info on the car:

*** Updated Pics 5/14 ***

repaired by paintless dent removal)

might even have this taken care of before the car sells)

Make sure you post pics of the interior as well. How does the car ride on the 20s and H&Rs? Also, what is the gas mileage like?

Pics of the interior are coming. The car rides extremely well for the setup, perfectly fine for daily driving. As far as gas mileage, I typically saw anywhere from 17 to 21 mpg. I've updated pictures at the top, and here's a link to my photo album so you can see pics of the problem areas on the exterior of the car. Thanks for looking guys.

This is a clean, professional, and great-driving car. I know from personal experience DD'ing for party boy Ryan. Feels smaller than it is and still pulls hard. This is a steal - I'll be sad to see it go!

As an added bonus, it has a definite humidity inducing effect on women - if it can help get Ryan laid, it can work for anyone!
