This is my car: a 1999 BMW 740i Sport. The "sport" indicates that it has forged aluminum 18" (M parallel spoke) wheels and high-performance Z-rated tires (155 mph), high stall speed performance torque converter, 3.15 final drive ratio, thicker sway bar, "M-technic" sport suspension (lowered 20mm), steptronic transmission, contour sport seats, shadowline exterior trim, and vavona redwood interior trim. The color is a unique shade of blue called "Biarritz Blue", apparently after the city in southern France.

I started hanging out in the "E38" (the designation for this model) forum at roadfly.org shortly before I got the car, and now have several upgrade projects that I want to do when I find the time and the money. The easiest is replacing the amber corner lights with clears (like the 2001 model). I also want to add "angel eye" halos around the headlights like the newer 5-series models. In June, a bunch of us from the forum in the Santa Barbara area (and some from farther away) got together, and a fun time was had by all.
