    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.

Oh Dear... Doug Doug Doug... Please remember what these cars were made for.... Autobahn all day at 140 miles per hour....... 4 people plus luggage..... No American car could do that at the time, NON.... BMW has always been a class act, in the 1960's too in Europe. Mercedes were the comfy brand and BMW the Sporty Brand.... the name says is Bayerische Motoren Werke.. Bayern Engine Works..... Try a 3.0CSi from the 1960's WAY More class and style to carry 4 people and luggage at cruising speeds of 100MPH Plus all day..... Cup holders... ??? WOW... No.. too American....

15 inch IS the correct size wheel for the most part of the purposes, including this luxury sedan. Imagine this car with bigger wheels. It would take precious space from rear passengers, also it would steal space of the engine. So at least they would have to reduce the max steering angle, so it would ruin the minimum radius of cornering. Agility in the traffic or when you are parking is important in any car.

Looking back as a German I can only assume this car was a milestone and the peak of German automotive engineering. Afterwards, during the last 30 years, they just got used to add elecronics. And german engineers discovered planned obsolence.

To the left of the gear selector on some of these cars was a switch with 3 options. E or A and S and M. M being manual, and E or A being the economy mode. S had different shift patterns and was the "sport" mode. In a car such as the one being shown here to go from E to S while driving simply drop the car down into 3rd while in the automotic mode. The display in the dash will also show an "S".

made in japan does sound like more quality then made in china would've been in the 80's fyi. Of course like that contact slip, china has come a long way in technology lmao. Also page 119 of the manual, this car does have cup holders. There are holders for two beverage containers in a tray in the center console (below the infotainment, push in pop out design) as well as in the face of the rear seat bench near the center seat position. To open, press against the upper recess; apply pressure and slide back to close (where you were resting your arm the whole time, in many 1990 luxury vehicles, that middle seat folded down because it opens up into a storage compartment with cup holders.) Only reason i looked it up.

Stark and Schlimm are German synonyms for intense. Could that be why its an ‘S’ on the wiper stalk? Just a guess. The cigarette lighter coming out at an angle also helps when attaching adapters. Some would be difficult to connect otherwise.

I like your channel Doug! I´m 43 years old and from Germany. When i was a child my father owned two S-classes in the eighties. A W116 (280S) and a W126 (280SE). Later he bought this E32 750iL. At their time all these cars where somehow the King of the Autobahn. When i was 19 i was allowed to drive the 750. At least in my memories this was the fastest car in the universe;). Sadly i have no comparison to the 560 merc but i think performancewise the BMW was better, somehow build for another how to say sporty or elegant audience. Remembering the W126, this car was kinda better build, more quality, never something broken (would´nt say that about the BMW;). There´s a German saying that BMW means "Bring mich Werkstatt". It means bring me to the auto repair shop.

7:05 It stands for scheinwerfer which means headlights in German 7:45 it tilts to be more reachable 8:05 actually it's very useful to choose the amount of dimming 8:45 it's for space saving/tilting for easy reach, after all it's just a $0.10 plastic path for a nice touch 14:00 saying that it was for money saving is pretty bad argument. This was the writing style of that BMW era, in fact in some models the letters were in mounted ON a plastic panel and then on the car and still the letters were connected so if they wanted to save money they would neither put them on the panel nor connect them Giving 6/10 on a 30 year European vehicle, which tiniest interior plastic piece probably costed BMW more than Tesla's interior plastics in total, is at least hillarious. Not to mention that you don't even hear a cracking noise after all that time. I hope not all Americans have this pour appreciation for quality vehicles like this

V12 of that time is basically two 2.5 I6, which were produced for 5er and 3er, sticked together. If I recall correctly almost all engine electrical is doubled, two ECUs and so on. Very tricky to maintain. But peak of the engineering of that era.
