Mein Auto: 09 750i
test drove 2001 today

its been about ten years and four cars later but i test drove a 2000 740i sport today with 113,000 miles on it.. must say the previous owner or owners did not take very good care of the car cosmetically. But boy oh boy when i stepped on the gas she took off like a bat out of hell. I was grateful that the guy just threw me the keys. I don't want conversations during test drives. I want to tune in to the car not make small talk. Man the memories flooded back of my 98 740il and i suddenly remembered why this model was the last of the "pure BMWs" I had an 08 650ic that coudnt get out of its on way uness it was in sports mode and my current 09 750i is a beast but somewhat detached from the road with all the electronic crap. Despite the obvious neglect, the E38 still brought that smile back to my face as the engine revved up on the highway. Ah yes, a man.. his car.. and the open road.. pure sweetness..
