I am currently looking at purchasing a 2nd hand 740i. Has anyone got any tips or suggestions in what to look for with regard to potential problems with this model. I am currently looking to get one on a P plate (1996) or slightly newer.
Any help would be really appreciated.
I just purchased a 2nd hand 740il 1998 series E38 engine M62. In Ft Lauderdale it was $25K on car lot. I recommend the CD Manual on 2 disk, 1 is how to and the other is parts. Sold as TIS & ETK . I found a local BMW guy and my worst job was $800. for new rotors/brakes. Good luck with your ultimate driving machine
