I just came back from the dealer and purchased a 1994 740iL with about 128000 km mileage clocked. But the V8 still sounds and idles perfect. Well, from what I can see anyway.

I read some posts about some people changing their engines instead of doing an overhaul after a couple of hundred thousand kilometres.

Any idea why changing the engine is better than repairing it? I thought the V8's are pretty durable except for the short block leakage problem which can be solved by changing to the Alusil short blocks.
