I just sold my 2001 BMW 740i Sport (E38).
It had everything I wanted in a car: 4.4L V8 with 285 HP and 325 lb-ft with rear wheel drive. It offered plenty of space and so many convenience items it is hard to list them all.
Unfortunately, since I am planning on having a family, I needed to look at a vehicle with more reliability and fuel savings. The Focus answered those questions.

It is without a doubt a steep step down from the flagship bimmer, however, it is still pleasant enough to drive.

Here are a few pics of my old whip:
