In Reply to: HELP-Buying 95' 740 IL.-any mech. problems? posted by Joe on June 28, 2001 at 12:18:02:

On the engine problem, all you need to know is on

Other than that...

- check the AC temp display windows for missing pixels. If they are gone the entire panel needs to be replaced (very expensive).

- check the cd player by running it for at least 30 minutes and see if it "skips" at any point for no reason. similarly, see if it skips easily on bumps.

- All the typical things you'd look for on a several years old car.

Good luck! If you find the car to be good, you won't regret. I love my 95' E38!!!


If anyone con help,I have the opportunity to buy a 740IL with 78,000 miles, price is $25,500 (white, tan leather interior, fully loaded). Heard that from 93'to 95' this car had some engine problems. Any insight about this would be greatly appreciated!
