Well Since I've seen both your car and the 750iL you are looking at I'll give you my two cents worth. Cosmetically the 750 is in better condition but you don't have to much to do to the 735i to put it on equal ground in appearance. From what I've seen on this board the 750 requires more maintenance and money to maintain. I personally don't see paying the price difference to trade cars unless your heart desires the 750 so much you can overcome it then trade for it. If you really want the 750, I would suggest to buy it outright (the price is right)and keep the 735i as well.

Someone needs to talk me back into this car. I was going to trade my 735 for it...1990 750il w/150K $7900. But after driving it...not sure.

It's solid and quiet, and it feels a lot like my 735, but it is not that much quicker than my big 6. Snapper and raspier, yes. Pulls harder, yes. But it's also not as nimble (feels heavier). It's playground is pure mid-range. Low end has nothing, runs out of steam up high. Is this normal? Is something up with it mechanically? It just didn't feel like 300hp to me.

Compared to my 6, I'm doubtful of how much more the 12 has to offer other than clout and high(er) repair costs. What should I do.....hmmmm
