What you didn't say, and what is one of the most important things, is where
you're located.

These cars are kind of notorious for electrical issues, and if they have
been kept in California they're apt to be a lot more reliable than if they
were kept in Massachusetts. But this is actually one of the more reliable
older 7-series cars, with an inline six instead of some of the crazier BMW
engines that went into later 7s. Like pretty much all BMWs, though, running
the engine hot is apt to have done some real damage.

Does it have an automatic or a manual transmission? Not a lot of these
were made with manuals and there is demand for manuals.

I'd find your local BMWCCA chapter and send them an email to put an ad in
their newsletter for it. You're selling it as-is so don't expect a lot of
money, but you can get it a good home with someone who will take care of it.
