My first E38 was a non sport 740i-my second a 750iL with EDC. I never felt that I missed out because the 740 was not a sport, but it depends what you want from the car and how you want to drive it. Now the 750 is '99 and the edc shocks are still fine, and they at least give you a choice of suspension hardness, but I don't have the EDC on around town on poorer surfaces.
'99 on is facelift so there is liitle change in spec after. I would say that if you like all the toys, then find a car that has what you want, as retro fits can be big jobs. These cars do not have universal wiring looms, they were wired only for the kit that was ordered. Adding equipment means finding and adding the appropriate piece of loom as well, and possibly a module which may have to be coded. Things can surprise you with simplicity but more often sheer complexity. It is critical to check as far as you possibly can that everything works especially if you lack repair skills.
