  • I have to say that owning three bmw's, a 91 bmw 525i, 94, bmw 530i, and 99 bmw 740il with over 710,000 miles, I have not had anywhere near the issues you experienced. I have family and friends who have over 400,000 miles that did not have these issues. What this indicates is that the prior owners did not maintain their cars. You can have the best car in the world but if you don't take care of it, it will not last. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Engine_of_the_Year

  • I have a 740i E38, used to have a 728i, and yes they can be very frustrating to own if you want a nice one... On the other hand, even though many things can (and went) wrong, none of them got me stuck on the side of the road, and even a tired one is a pleasure to drive... Basically make sure the AC works, don't be too concerned about the rest, and you'll do plenty of miles in the ultimate russian mafia car, cruising around at very illegal speeds

  • I have had my E38 for 10 years. 150,000 miles, now 219,000. Best car I've ever owned. Sure, an alternator and various repairs but most I've done myself, but very reliable. I'm driving a $70,000 car for CHEAP! The handling is surprising and 150 MPH top speed...so I bought an other one for only $2,500 so I never have to drive a lesser car. Don't listen to everything you see on here. Every complex car is expensive to repair.

  • My 01 740il SPORT! Has 238,000. I acquired it at 120,000. I have owned it for 5 years and yes it cost money to keep her running awesomely. How is this justified? Well I own one of my top 5 bucket list cars so it’s emotional, however I do not have a car payment. So, I look at it as what I don’t put into payments is used to keep her repaired. So 5-10G a year is a bargain to keep my badass daily driver and the most (IMO) badass luxury sedan on the road. PS, I do have a parts car, it helps.

  • You keep showing one BMW after the other and call all of them junk. It is quite funny that in Europe, they are viewed a lot differently. Most of them have some type of the six-cylinder Diesel engine and work just fine even after 200.000 miles. Are they free of any problems? Of course not, but show me one car that is and still has a similar technology level.

    • @Michael Buczko I did kinda expect this answer. That series of cars seems to have a big following in the US, but they are very, very rare in Europe. Anyway, it is more about the fact that any car will have issues at 20 years of age just because of the fact that everything made out of rubber or plastics, gaskets and so on will simply need work. This is not specific to BMW. This E38 had no issues that any other car of that age would not have had. Timing chain guides, leaking gaskets, suspension shot. Where is this any different to any other car? He is just going "You said this was the best BMW and it is still junk." No, it is still old, that's it and we can play this game with any car. It is a sad truth that any car without serious collectible status will not be worth the money to properly restore it.

Seats and interior were more refined no doubt but BMW inline 6s go FOREVER ... This dude bothers Me , I have an 89 735i with 80k.on it and I wouldn't trade for that 740i if he gave Me 5k ... And I.know My car isn't worth much but I do have a fantasy of buying a 745i turbo setup w intercooler and that should kill it for sure .

Really Toyota? Are you that desperate? My brother has a new Corolla with a lot less horsepower and he has paddle shifters! They were made for race cars and then high end super cars adopted them, which is understandable. But come on now. Can we say the Japanese have no concept? Boo! Give us back a manual shifter. No one is going to 0-60 in 4 seconds or less in a normal car, twats! Infotainment systems are another thing. Look at archaic ones and tell me these will hold up and not affect the resale value of cars. Not gonna happen. I buy old muscle and sports cars now. Fuck all that!

  • You finally bought another good BMW, along with your Clown Shoe. Yes, it's going to take some money to sort - but you knew that going in. When finished it will be a car that will last another 100k miles which for you should be another 50 years with all the cool cars you've accumulated! This is why I have an E46 M3 Cabrio with the manual 6 spd. I can still do almost anything to the car (watch my channel for E46 and BMW K1600GT shennanigans) without maintenance costing me more than the car did... -jaysbigadventure

  • the MOST beautiful sedans were and are Jaguar XJ6 and XJ8 from 1995 through 2009. And Jaguars, contrary to popular mythology, were more reliable than BMW. As an example, when you replaced the timing chain tensioner in yours the replacement part was again plastic. While Jaguar used plastic tensioners from 1997 - 2002, but the replacement part is metal not plastic.

The E34 series was just about a perfect shape too. That’s a nice car! All the suspension bushes are probably long gone on that one by now.
