Yea! 20! Here's my BMW's. 2000 540i ZSP (sport package) on the left, 1998 740il ZPP (Premium package... I think) on the right.



A few stats for those that don't know BMW's... both cars have 4.4 liter v8's making about 282hp/324ft/lbs and the 540i is 0-60mph (0-100km) in 6 seconds, and the 740il is about 6.8. Love the cars but they eat gas... about 14/mpg (16.2 liters per 100 kilometers), and the 740il is a maintence headache.

Another pic of the cars from the back...

hmm, if they're your cars, wouldn't you know the packages applied to them? and are you sure it isn't an alpina L7?
No, when you buy the cars used, sometimes you can't tell what package it came with, I don't know 740il package options from that year so I can't tell if the options I have are stand alones or part of a larger package. I do know the package on the 540i, because my sport seats, rims, and lowered suspension gives it away (not to mention the handling is quite different from a non ZSP).

Alpina doesn't import into the United States (although I wish they would), the only reason the 740il has L7 badging is because the previous owner was an idiot and thought it would look cool. The sad thing is that he superglued the lettering on, so even though I tried to remove it, the glue residue is still there. I may have to repaint. :(

Also, the 7's front bumper is a custom piece from vision motorsport, also put on by the previous owner.

No, these are just cars that have come and gone.

I consider all of these vehicles, except the Renault, to be modern cars - I mean, they're not "modern" but they're newer than the cars I'm really interested in - stuff from the 1920's and 1930's.

A very unique and interesting choice of cars you've gone through there. Also noticed that crown vic has bbs rims, are show stock?
