<i>: Anybody here have or test drive the 740i Sport? <p>:<p></i>I own a 98, 740 with 9x18 255/45ZR18, 10k miles. I drove the 740i Sport today.<br>Nice, I like the Sport seats and the Steptronic.<br>The transmission has all 5 gears avaliable in Sport mode. The manual shifting is crisp. Much less of a slush box.<br>The suspension is stiffer, yet not harsh.<br>The Sport option is definitly worth the $2600 option price. (I paid more than that for the BMW 9x18" cross-spoke alloys I put on my 7.)<br>Now the decision? to-upgrade or not-to-upgrade<br>

Test drove on last weekend - great car. I have an E39 540iA Sport, and this 740 felt likes the mature big brother. Very fast, rides better than my 540, but does not handle quite as well. If I were to need a larger car, this would be it. My business partner has a 740iL which I frequently drive...and this is a much better driving car.<p><i>: Anybody here have or test drive the 740i Sport? <p>:<p></i>

I have had a 740i Sport for about 6 weeks and I love it. It rides firmer than a regular 740i/iL, but it handles much better. I actually like the SWB version better in terms of looks, plus with the 18 inch wheels it looks awesome.<p>The seats are superb and I do not regret at all waiting for the Sport.<p>Dean
