1998 740iL, 4.4 liter V8, black on black. $7500 of of ebay. Here it is, after Christmas, and I've got the car with me at work. I brought it home over the weekend, after a couple days of driving it around in CT. First impresions... Drives like a much smaller car. Responsive, agile (for a big car), and rather quick. V8 rumble non-existent at idle or in normal driving, but healthy roar when getting on it hard. Love that. Supremely comfortable for long distances, whicle still being supportive. Even though it has a lot of miles, the interior is perfect. And it rides and runs like new. I've already put on 350 miles on it, on all kinds of road surfaces, and there's nothing that stands out as being wrong with it. I'm going to go over the normal BMW 7 series trouble areas, but I don't anticipate much of an issue. I love the lines of this car. Always have. I finally got a chance to get my own pictures of it. In the meantime, I'm just enjoying driving it. There are a couple of small door dings, but I can live with that. And the front cupholder set doesn't work properly, but that's an easy fix. It was originally from Maine, so it has a lot of sandblasting of the headlight covers. I've got a couple new ones on order from ebay, and got the updated '99-up style trunklid trim for it as the start of the mild customization. The wheels aren't as bad in person, but I still want to get the 18" M Parallels with Vogtland 1.5" drop springs, just to set it off from the stock ones running around. All in all, another good transaction on Ebay. The dealership was on the up and up, and very easy to work with to get the car ready to be picked up.Now, the only question is how long will I keep it? Unlike a lot of other cars I've had, I plan on keeping it for a number of years, possibly even as long as it takes to pay it off! hehehehe.
