I always used to wonder what people could possibly see in the 740 body styling... I think I understand now.

That's drop dead gorgeous.

The wheels made me happy, the steering wheel made me jealous!

Sizes/offsets/tires?

Did you do an IRS swap too?

I'vee seen a fair bit of both worn and nice 7 leather seats. I guess it depends on the owner. But we don't have the californian sun here either

Yeah, best oem steering wheel ever.

They are 17x9.5. 6" inner barrels and 3" lips + 1/2" center.
Haven't really measured the ET but I think its on the negative side, close to zero.
Tyres are 215/40

Yes I've swapped an IRS from an early 960

Sadly no sunroof, if I knew that I would take this car this far I would have bought a sunroof car.
