I have a 2000 740i Oxford Green and Tan Leather interior am in the process of putting Bond 18" rims soon. When you buy a 740i try to get it from a BMW Dealer and Certified Series. This will save you a lot of problems as the vehicle is fully checked out and you have a full warranty until 120,000kms. Try to get the 740i sports package if possible. If not buying from BMW get all service records and call the previous owner. $20 spent at Ministry of Transport for the package is well worth the money.
Finally: 740i's are expensive to maintain but "Awesome Machine" you will not regret the smooth ride and performance.
I am going to bring mine in the spring 2005 for the Bimmercruise.
Pics will be posted soon
