Best Used 7 Series to Buy

Hi Folks:

I am in the market to get a used 7 series to replace my 2004 530i which got totalled recently - looking for no earlier than 2000 model.

From a quick overview it seems the 3rd generation is the most popular. E38 from 1995 to 2001.

Can some please share your opinion on which model and year would be the best one to get considering:

1.The best package with default technology - is it 2000 or 2001
2. Which model 740i or 740iL - in regards to gas mileage
3. In terms of known mechanical/technical issues which could be a big flag.

Any input is greatly appreciated
