BMW's E32 7-Series, in production from 1987 to 1994, came with the option of two different wheelbases. This 1991 735iL features the rarer longer wheelbase (116in instead of 111.5in) offering more generous passenger accommodation inside. This 3.4-litre six-cylinder Glacier Blue with blue leather interior example was registered in January 1991 and is now showing 127,720 miles on its odometer. It is MoT'd through to the end of November 2024. Three registered keepers overall are recorded on the V5C. The vendor has owned it since 2016, during which the car has only covered approximately 13,000 miles during that time and reports that the car starts, runs and stops well, having been driven 50 miles to ACA with no issues. However, the battery is said to be weak, possibly through lack of use. 

The car presents well, albeit with some age-related marks. Recent work has included rear brake discs and pads for the last MoT. The air conditioning isn't operating and the interior fan is noisy but functional. Electric windows and seats are all operational and the sunroof is believed to be working - it was fine last summer - but was untested at drop-off. The self-levelling suspension has been replaced by regular shocks, which means the dashboard will sometimes display a warning about them.  
Paperwork accompanying the BMW includes the V5C, MoTs, service and repair receipts since 2016, and the 2016 receipt of sale. There's also the original book pack with owner's manual, radio instructions, dealership directory and service booklet with 14 stamps through to 102,816 miles in February 2006; after that, the indicated mileage is largely confirmed by the MoT history. There's also a spare remote control fob key, albeit untested.
