    ..wonderful car..rather spectacular really..only side note, i would like to make, if I may, is, remove that M badge, if such beauty is not really M..its spoiling entire touch and feeling, and giving it non deserved weird aftertaste..other than that..one of the most gorgeous vehicle crawling planet, for sure..

    Seen both the E34 & E38 few times in Bomin in the past. So thats the 740 that you and John was talking about!

    Anyway, gorgeous beast. Always wanted to get a E38. Prolly one soon when age catches up. It was love at first sight when first saw the car in James Bond Tomorrow Never Dies.
