Hi all, I'm usually over on the E36 board.. Well, my friend will be soon purchasing (possibly) a 95 740iL w/ approx. 70K miles. If not this one, then possibly another used one in the market.

Well bottom line.. I have that dreaded ol' reliability question.. I know that obviously the maintenance cost is more than say my 97 328is but I'd like to know about a list of common problems/issues one would most likely have to deal with. For example, early 3 series models should have the BS plastic impellar water pump replaced before 60or earlierK miles, door panel problems, rear shock mounts, etc. you get the point..

Well, it was a pleasure, thanks guys.. :)

I would greatly appreciate some responses on this one. I know that BMW's are (for the most part) solid cars, but we all know of some earlier significant problems that should be sorted out for a prospective used car buyer.

Well, thanks again.
