So I go visit a friend's relatives in Nashville and "Uncle Bill" drives a '97 740i. The moment I saw it I fell in love. It's that distinguished gray/silver color with beautiful gray leather interior. He ends up letting me have it on Saturday and I basically take it out all day. With friends to boot. I opened and closed the trunk at least 20 times just to watch it automatically close itself. My question is this: being a young guy who doesn't have any kind of assets other than my car and a meager bank account - what price range should I look at for a car like this? Also, when was the 740i Sport introduced? I'd love to have a little more firm suspension and sportier wheels.
I've fallen in love and can't stop thinking about this car. Planting the gas from a standstill results in the smoothest application of constant power that I've ever felt. My E30 is fun and all but this is a car that demands respect.
My buddy Lucas, also 16 years old, gets to drive his boss' 2000 740i Sport on a daily basis....oh the humanity!
