This is the 7 series model with the legendary straight 6 cylinder petrol engine driving the rear wheels. This has the 2800cc, fuel injected petrol engine which some say was the best engine they put in these cars not just because of their reliability but also due to the improved fuel consumption over the larger engined models. This is a top of the range model with just about everything on it. This is a very nice example which has not been molested in any way and has been very well looked after by my brother who was the previous owner for 10 years and by the owners before him. It is totally original and has not been customised with chrome arches or low profile wheels or blacked out windows like many others I’ve seen. There are not many nice original ones of these left. The specification includes:

• Climate control
• Central locking
• Grey Leather seats
• Electric driver and passenger seats with memory
• Electric mirrors
• Cruise control
• 4 speed automatic gearbox
• Dealer fitted, car phone set-up

History
When buying used, I find the most important thing to know about is the car's history and previous ownership. My brother owned this car for ten years. He bought it from Millstream, a BMW specialist. He added this car to his collection of 4 luxury cars so it’s not covered many miles at all in the last 10 years as can be seen by the MOT and service history.

I bought it last summer as we needed a “stop gap” car till my wife’s Volvo XC60 arrived. I'd always wanted a 7 series but it's not been used since my wife's car arrived and as we have two other cars, plus a classic car in the garage (and a motorbike!) I’ve decided to pass this toy on to somebody who will use it. I've just had a new MOT on it, taxed it and am using it daily till I sell it, along with my XC90, so the miles will rise slightly.

The engine is a big straight 6 which sounds lovely and smooth. They say these are bullet proof and it should easily do twice the 124K miles it’s clocked up in the last 20 years.

Mechanicals
In the 10 years of ownership, the car has never let my brother down. It has always started and run smoothly without any problems. It is fast and delivers effortless power from its 205HP straight six engine. The engine does not make any strange noises and uses no oil. The gearbox changes up and down as it should and the kickdown works as it should. Brakes are strong and the power steering works fine.

Climate Control
This car has climate control/Air conditioning.

Bodywork
The paint is metallic silver (Aspen silver) with colour-coded bumpers, door mirrors and door handles. The paintwork is stunning - nice and shiny but remember - it is a 20 year old car so does have the odd ding or scratch commensurate with its age.

Tyres
It has Michelin tyres at the front with lots or tread left on them. The rear tyres are only a few 100 miles old.

Interior
The leather seats are all unmarked. Both the front seats are electric the driver’s one having memory settings. All the electric windows work as do all the other controls and radio/cassette which is an original BMW. The carpets are all in good condition and nice and plush. The roof lining is in perfect condition. It has the footwell lighting and puddle lights on the doors, which is a very nice touch

The lovely leather steering wheel has no wear on it had a protective steering wheel glove on it all the years my brother had it. The wood trim is real wood. It has the original stereo cassette radio player which you can hide behind a pull down wooden shutter.

In car phone
The car has a phone kit which must have been dealer fitted when new. It works with a NOKIA mobile phone which slots into the cradle. It is wired up with a microphone and has an external speaker. It also has a handset which you can use like a normal phone. Depending on the price agreed, I may also provide the NOKIA phone which fits in the cradle. Not tried the phone system but I think all you need is a SIM in it and you’ve got a fitted car phone. And if you'd rather not have it, I can probably remove it.

Manuals and Documents
It comes with the owners’ manual and service booklet in the original BMW leather wallet which is as new. Also old MOTs showing the mileage is genuine. V5 is in my name at my home address.

Other
The car comes with two ignition key which double up as the remote locking/alarm fobs. The alarm works fine. Any inspection is welcomed and encouraged as I am sure this is a very straight car.

Viewing
The car is in Sunbury Surrey but I work in Richmond so can meet buyers there weekdays. Viewings are time consuming so please- genuine inquiries only from serious buyers, and no silly offers. I don’t need to sell it and as it's such a fine car, I am happy to keep- it’s appreciating more than money in the bank, given current interest rates. If you're interested, I can send you the link to the many pictures I’ve put on a picture sharing site so you can see the condition in more detail before viewing it. I can deliver within reason for my return home fare, as long as you've viewed it and given me a deposit first and pay the balance on delivery.

Thanks for looking.
