    My daily driver 740iL

    Hello! Since I'm new here, I'd like to introduce my most current rides, starting with my daily driver for the last 3 years, this 1998 740iL... Bought it on eBay 3 years ago, sight unseen, from a wholesaler in Connecticut (5 hours and 4 states away from here) for $7500. It had 143k miles on it...
