BaT Auction: 1999 BMW 740i Sport at No Reserve
This 1999 BMW 740i Sport is finished in Cosmos Black over black leather, and was reportedly originally owned by a BMW executive. The seller acquired the car last year from the third owner, a family friend who retired in Florida. He has since performed a mechanical and cosmetic refresh, including new suspension components, engine gaskets, interior components, and service of the digital instrument cluster. The car is equipped with double-pane laminated glass, M-Parallel wheels, Shadowline trim, sport suspension, premium stereo, and more. This 740i is offered with service records, original books, a clean Carfax report, and a clean New Jersey title.
The exterior is finished in Cosmos Black, and features Shadowline trim, staggered M-Parallel wheels, and lowered Sport Package suspension. The seller notes that the front and rear bumpers have been repainted, and describes some road rash on the hood.
Kumho Ecsta tires are installed, and the seller has replaced the windshield gasket, cowl cover, and installed a set off Hella yellow foglight bulbs. The car is equipped with xenon headlights and dual-pane laminated climate control glass; an option which the seller notes is usually only seen on the 750iL.
The cabin is trimmed in black leather contrasted by Vavona Redwood interior trim. The car is equipped with Premium Sound with DSP, sport-comfort seats, a heated 4-spoke steering wheel, and provision for a car phone. The steering wheel-mounted volume controls are said to work intermittently. The seller has replaced the glovebox latch, headliner, and fitted a new set of BMW carpeted floor mats.
The seller had the instrument cluster refurbished by a specialist to correct for dead pixels. 94k miles are currently shown, approximately 4k of which were added by the seller.
The 4.4L V8 was factory rated at 282 horsepower, and sends power to the rear wheels via a 5-speed ZF Steptronic automatic. The Sport package included a high stall torque converter and a 3.15 differential. Recent work included new valve cover gaskets, valley pan gasket, intake manifold gasket, oil filter housing mount, intake manifold cover, water flange gasket, water pump o-ring, air filter, and spark plugs. The seller also performed an oil change, replaced the coolant expansion tank, and flushed the coolant.
The seller recently replaced the high pressure power steering hose, steering pump banjo bolt, left and right lower control arms and thrust arms, steering center link, and tie rods. The front brake rotors and pads were replaced with Brembo items, and an alignment was performed. Photos of the underside are provided in the gallery below.
The tool kit is present, and the spare M-Parallel wheel and tire are shown in the gallery. The seller notes that the original books and two keys are included.
A walkaround and drive video is viewable above.
A Carfax report from March 2018 shows history with the original lessee and three owners, including the seller. No accidents or other issues are noted.
