    2000 model. They did a damn good job. Just imagine hopping in this thing going for a cruise.

    First of all repped for the E38 thread cause that's one of the goats. :wow:

    I don't like when they black everything out like some shyt an 18 year old with plastidip would do. Check this out for reference.

    The dark color with the chrome accents + Alpina alloys is the perfect contrast. Makes it look like a timeless luxury car.

    My daily is an 01 Sport. Just hit 200k the other day. Replaced the tranny a couple months back and the engine still pulls skrong af and doesnt have any leaks. Even with gas at almost $5 a gallon out here i still keep my foot deep in the pedal and love every minute of it. Outside of a small stitch separation in the passenger seat, the interior is immaculate (for its age) as well.


    (Tastefully) Smoked the tails, side markers, and front turn signals along with adding wheel spacers and some beat, but it’s otherwise stock

    This was the best 7 series and the only 7 series I could appreciate. Big boddy, offset wheels with deep dish for the perfect stance:wow:

    Alpina, Hargtes or BBS…:blessed:

    The only first-class big boddy I’m choosing over this one is the late 90s 500SEL with the AMG monoblock :whew:
