740iguy is an unknown quantity at this point
Hello all, thanks for taking the time to read this in advance:

Well, I purchased a 1995 740i about a year ago, and the car is great, however I am approaching 92,000 miles. I read a list of TSBs for the car and there are over 200 of them so I got a bit freaked, mainly over number 219.
*Engine - Degradation of Idle Quality By High Sulfur Fuel*
A friend had told me that this was a tsb that was released some time back, and that it will eat the block in this car over time, he said it was something due to the block being made i europe and that the gas over here was too rough on it. Lately the engine has been idiling rough and I am afraid it might be due to this, so my questions are the following:

1. is this something I should be worried about? I know BMW did not make a recall on this as far as I know, but they did fix the blocks up until the year 2000 (or so I was told)

2. What would I be looking at to fix this? Labor and all, or is it even worth paying for?

3. If it is worth fixing or not a huge issue, is there any reccomendations that you could give for proper maintenence with my car having 92k miles.

Thanks for all the help,
much appreciated.

What I think you are looking for is the difference between NIKASIL AND ALUSIL. Some of the 1994-5 BMW's with V8s(M60) engines had a problem with deterioration due to high sulfhur content in the fuel. Go to Koalamotorsport.com and look at hthat issue. This is Brent Anderson's site and he has a good write up and how to determine if your car has the MIKASIL engine.
