Interesting question (2002 vs 2001)
My Father had that very issue last summer. His 1994 740iL was getting tired (140k and a parking lot bump in therear door)

I told him of the upcoming changes for the 'new' 7 series. He RAN down to the dealer and bought a 2001 740iL. It wasn't the money. The more I told him about the changes coming for 2002, the more he knew he had to get the 'old' car

Now that he has seen the new one, he just shakes his head and can't believe how BMW lost their way (kind of like Mercedes did in 1992 with the S class if you recall. Actually that's how he came to BMW. He was a Mercedes guy... And may be again )

Either way- I'd not mind either in my driveway (assuming I win the lottery or something...)
