Back in a BMW- 1997 740i with under 100k

Well after saving for a while, I broke down and bought what I really wanted, a lower mileage Black on Black 740i. The car is a 2 owner off lease car and is in pristine condition save for one missing speaker cover in the rear door.

I have been reading a lot about the 740's and went over this car with a fine tooth comb. I have all the records and have talked to the dealers that it was serviced at. I jumped from driving my 3 series to this and feel like I am in heaven. I sold the 3 series about 4 months ago and have since been slumming it in my VW passat (soon to be up for sale)

Just wanting to re-introduce myself as a 7 series owner, I am sure i will use and contribute to this portion of the forum as much as I did in the 3 series section. I can't wait to put some miles on this...

Next thing on my list is a nice set of upgraded factory wheels, some tint, and perhaps i will tint the tops of the tails (orange section)..
