the engine problems were with nikosil blocks. These blocks' cylinders were incompatible with our gasoline and it eventually oblonged the cylinders creating major engine problems. O.K. class, can anyone guess the main ingredient in a nikosil block?? HINT: we have a coin with the same name ; ) Contact the dealer and tell them you want them to check your car to see if it needs the recall. Yes I said recall, BMW will replace the engine at no charge if it needs. The dealer should inspect it at no charge. You have to take the car in because they have to get a number off of the engine block. The heavy-as-hell 740 does eat up front suspension parts but not so bad that it should deter someone from purchasing a 740. Just have it looked over and being at the understanding that when doing repairs on a BMW, remember what the acronym stands for...... Bring Money Withya
Don't worry, that's just a common joke around the bimmer world. The 740 is a great car, you'll love it.
