If you're looking for a bigger car, why not look at the e39. Either with a 4.4L or the 2.8 M52 (both regular and TU version).

Those can be turbo'ed, etc.

Yea I saw that too, I was shocked that you could find a nice 96-97 740i for around $10-15,000 which was around $100,000 new...

As for the E39, they are not my favorite, don't get me wrong I do like them, but the interior is a little too small for someone my size, i found when I drove one, that the B pillar dug into my shoulder... and my knees were uncomfortable as well. The seven, I can stretch my legs out when I throw on the cruise, and have lots of room to get comfortable on a long trip.

Since I love to drive so much, this is what is most important, comfort.

07 GTI, Revo Stage II, 3" catless GHL exhaust, OEM R32 rear conversion, 17x9 + 17x11 215/45/17 all around on genuine BBS RS's, B&G RSII coilovers

I know its a pity. I love the way the e38s look, espeically with the extended wheel base (IL model).
