The E38 chassis was always first on my list as the "proper" alternative to my 840, but I just couldn't find a good example at a reasonable price. I finally found a 2001 740i Sport in Orient Blue Metallic - the same color as my previous 840 - at an agreeable price, and drove it home to Texas from Colorado in December 2014.

I bought a 2001 BMW 740i as the last year of production had distinctive body colored trim, newly designed taillights (introduced in 2001), and for a half year only a 16:9 aspect ratio screen. Its a great car for ignoring the road rather than absorbing the experience.
I still vividly remember the first time I saw an E38 with the sport package. It was August of 1998, and I was an 11 year old kid standing on a street corner in Kittery, Maine, when an ocean blue 740i Sport pulled up to a stop sign and then did a bit of a mild burnout as it pulled away, thanks no doubt to the shorter rear end ratio and DSC defeat switch. I’ve always liked blue cars and so when I decided to start looking for an E38, I knew I wanted a blue (or Imola Red) 2001 740i Sport. Most E38s are black or silver, and most blue E38s have the sand interior with the brown dashboard, or perhaps the grey interior, but a few have the oyster interior, which is set off by dark blue carpets, dashboard, upper door panels and parcel shelf, which is stunning in my opinion. There were two shades of blue offered, the darker Orient blue, or the more vibrant Biarritz blue that this car wears. I prefer this brighter shade, and looked forever to find a car that ticked all of these boxes.
