2001 BMW (E38) 735I SPORT

KEY FACTS

  • A rare low-mileage facelifted example of the iconic E38 generation 7 Series saloon in Sport trim, presented in good condition.
  • Powered by a 232bhp M62 3.5-litre V8 petrol engine, sending power to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic gearbox.
  • This E38 was originally registered to its first owner in Japan in March 2001, before being imported to the UK in August 2017. The current owner acquired the 735i nearly one year ago.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • The exterior is finished in Titan Silver with the factory Sport body kit, and features black Nappa leather upholstery with Amaretta suede centre panels.
  • As a genuine Sport package car, it features the firmer suspension, lower-ratio differential, and anthracite headlining.
  • The cabin is fitted with contrasting dark brown wood interior trim inserts, electrically adjustable sports seats, heated front and rear seats, air-conditioning, folding mirrors, electric rear blinds and a factory BMW stereo and satellite navigation combination system.
  • Original factory fitted equipment includes a sunroof and mobile phone preparation located in the centre armrest.
  • It sits on a set of Style 37 ‘Parallel’ five-spoke alloy wheels in staggered fitment, measuring 18x8 on the front and 18x9.5 on the rear.
  • The car is accompanied by its original BMW handbooks, its original factory tool kit in the boot, a full-sized spare alloy wheel and two ignition keys together with the original factory supplied BMW plastic wallet key.

CONDITION

  • The Titan Silver paintwork is in generally excellent condition with a minor amount of stone chips on the front chin spoiler and nose of the car. There are also a couple of small scratches on the bonnet itself.
  • It is known that a front wing dent was previously repaired under insurance in 2018, but there is no other known bodywork damage. The car is HPI clear.
  • The cabin is in great shape, with no significant wear marks on the seats or interior surfaces and trim. The headlining is in excellent condition, but is sagging in the rear of the car so will require attention at some point.
  • No mechanical or electrical issues are reported with the vehicle, and there are no warning lights on the dashboard.
  • The car passed its most recent MOT test in July 2020 at the first attempt, with no advisories noted.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • The most recent service was performed by Vines BMW at 47,707 miles in July 2020. It was also serviced by Vines BMW in April 2018 at 43,781 miles.

SUMMARY

This facelifted BMW 735i Sport is a low-mileage example of the E38 saloon in the desirable driver-focused specification. It is very well presented and benefits from a BMW main dealer service around 500 miles ago. As smart, unmodified examples of the E38 are becoming harder to find, this stylish modern classic would make a very usable daily driver or weekend cruiser.
