    The E32 BMW 750iL was BMW's flagship luxury sedan from 30 years ago -- and it was the first V12-powered luxury sedan in this segment. Today I'm reviewing the 750iL, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of a special BMW luxury sedan -- then I'm going to drive the 750iL and review the BMW 750iL driving experience.

14:30 I am guessing the reason was not cost but rather wanting to pierce the bodywork as few times as possible.

Кирилл, между тем к игре в online казино надо тоже подходить с умом. Естественно, когда вы катаете в вулкан делюкс то вы ни одного раза не выведете бабки, а например если придти к вопросу тщательно тогда сможете представлять, что существуют такие как вулканы, созданные мошенниками и не выводящие деньги, а имеются игорные заведения с лицензией, где подкрутка аппаратов исключена. Так что не думаю что правильно решать на основе мошеннических сайтов. Лист лицензионных игровых автоматов можно посмотреть здесь: https://casinreg.ru

In reality their v12 is just 2 2.5 liter is6 glued together in a v shape. So yeah no surprise they came up with that before a v8 engine, as the v8 required development the v12 didn't. And that said... I never have been a fan of bmw v12s.. as they usually just become a pain when things break, specially given how much of an independent unit both glued together i6 still are. Has always been i6 or v8 for me.

My dad owned one of these when it was more or less new, thinking he had gotten a "good deal" on a V12, it was a total lemon. The catalytic converters melted and fused together, requiring > $6000 in repairs, no fewer than three times before he sold it, at a loss. I remember checking into this model circa 2000 when I had an employer with multiple T1s, back when that still seemed as if it was relatively fast broadband, and most of the remaining stock which could be found had a *negative value* given the repair costs, with multiple fora posts from multiple owners attesting to what a disaster it was to own one of these. My dad, owning predominantly Mercedes and Mustangs from my youth in the 1970s, until this car, swore off of European cars entirely until he died (making an exception to buy my mom a Mercedes station wagon with AWD circa 1999 [he passed away in 2000]), switching to a Mustang 5.0 GT convertible after unloading the 750iL onto some other sucker. Albeit, I grew up within ear shot of Laguna Seca, and in addition to attending more or less every race on that track, my dad would also take me on "bonding" trips to Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach annually. I am sick to death of cars, but your channel reminds me a bit of the hubris and ignorance my dad exhibited, so I watch it for its charms, or quirks as you may phrase it. ;) Despite your perspective though, as the son of someone who owned one, and pushed cars to their limits, this was a complete disaster of a car. I drove it once or twice, and while it was impressive that it would hit 50MPH before even bothering to shift out of first, it was definitely not suited for anything but making repair shops unnecessary profits on abysmal engineering. There are reasons why multiple mechanic youtube channels poo-poo BMWs, and your review seems to ignore that entirely. I'm honestly surprised you found one in drivable condition in the 21st century, they were falling apart even within a year or two from being shipped from the factory. Moreover, that's *with* the over-engineered poorly thought out trip computer which could be heard mechanically logging information if you sat in the car after it had been powered off for more than 5-10 minutes. A truly, terrible, vehicle.

In my E32, all the doors in the armrests have normal pockets (I have whitefish and a wallet there). In the fatty trim levels, there is a passenger airbag (I have it), at maximum speed there is full climate control on the buttons (without twists) And from the very beginning there was a V8. Did you screw up? Acceleration 7 seconds 30 years ago on a weight of 2.5 tons. She is prettier than 38, steering well for a barge. And "no sportiness" cheoooo ???? This is a premium barge.

Jaguar had been building v12 saloons for a decades when this 7 showed up. Jaguar was better in many ways, better wood, leather and smoother ride the xj40 also had two lighters in the back but was cramped in the back. The first 7 also had vents in the back and power rear seats but the was not a heated option

750 had square tail pipes. Tool kit location meant that tools were accessible even when trunk was full with luggage.

Headlight washers very fragile often broke off in snow and freezing temps. In later years BMW recessed the washers in bumper to avoid this problem.the wheels were a bitch to keep clean due to lace pattern. Rocker switch backlighting failed often. You had to replace whole switch as bulbs were not serviceable. Lol. Switches were 100 dollars each plus labor to swap out.lol. Like paying 200 bucks for a bulb.lol.standing joke was every service visit cost 1000 bucks back in the day.lol.
