: I've got a 95 540i and after watching this post and checking out the other websites, I'm just curious about the replaced block issue. How many of you have had the V-8 block replaced and is there anyone out there who hasn't? How many miles did the original last? Anybody from Minnesota had it replaced? It seems like where you live makes a difference. Thanks in advance for the reponses.
Our '95 740i had the block replaced (2) months ago @ 76k. Check out http://www.koalamotorsport.com/ & go to V-8 problems. also try http://www.530i.org/.. same problem with them.
