730 conversion to 740

Hi guys,
I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I just placed an order for the 730Li and will be picking it up end Feb. it's in Alpine white/Beige interior with most options accept for rear tv.
Now I have a question, I like the double tailpipe on the 740, can it be done to my 730? I know the rear lower part of the rear bumper has to be swaped. I'd like to know if anyone has done it here?

I just switched my order to the 740Li, everyone around me is telling me to go for the 740 anyway and I have to admit, the power delivery is much better thanks.

I ended up picking up the 730Li which set me back a good US$212000. No point paying an extra US$28k just for the added power, they both look exactly the same. Cars in Singapore cost a bomb!
Also bought 19 inch rims from Hamann
275/40/19(rear) and 245/45/19(front)-same size as the 750Li rims. The car is in Alpine white(flat white), attached is a photo of the rims on a black 7.

Car delivery is end Feb afterwhich I will post photos here for sure. All the while I have been owning Jags and this is my first BMW. Only thing is I hear all these stories about BMW electronics being sensitive. I hope I'm wrong.
