740i M Sport looks very good, but does it still have its delivery bump stops in the suspension?? Riding a bit high.

I know it's all subjective but... am I the only one that finds Alpina versions ugly? ///M looks ten times better.

I have a great respect for all that Alpina does engineering wise, but I think the more "simple" 740i m-sport wins as far as looks goes...

Seems like a heavy car for just 315 horsepower though (740i), hope thats under-rated by at least 50hp.

Very sloppy on BMW's behalf. I'm sure it would only take a couple on minutes to remove.


IMO ZMP is much nicer looking than the B7

Why is the 740i rear bumper section near the mufflers black and not the same color as the rest of the bumper? I see some cars out there color coded and some in black like the picture above. Is that part of the M package? Thanks.

You will "Never Stand Still" because at $122,000 you will be working your ass off to pay for it.

It would leave the wholes from self-taping screws in the bumper! :-)

Alpine B7 looks so hot especially the rear, however I like the front M kit. Thanks for posting.

The 740i with the M sport package, seems to be riding a bit high to be a sport model.

Look at the wheel to fender space, on the 740i compared to the 5 series next to it (which is not a sport model) or the Grand Coupe concept behind it.
