Don't understand how you can call this car junk. Every car has its known issues after long term ownership. You obviously were aware of many of them. If you knew the chain guides hadn't been done and they were due, wouldn't a normal person find out how much that job is, then factor that into their purchase offer? That job and parts is half of that $5k.

I had a 1995 Black 740i and finally had to give it up at 300K miles since I was moving for a job and it wasn't worth trying to ship it with no place to park it. It had the cheaper builtin cellphone. I had no issues with the engine, transmission or suspension. It was mostly one little electrical problem after another. With the help of HRpost, BMW forums and RockAuto, a lot of it I could fix myself. Replacing the rusting gas tank was the biggest pain. My mechanic had a hard time finding one to fit, and then that one leaked too.

These are indeed the greatest BMW ever made, definitely not junk. Take care of the deferred maintenance and it will last a lifetime. I have owned two of these (2001 740i Sport and 2001 740iL) for five and six years, and would purchase either one of them again. Zero regrets. If you like this generation of BMWs, check out M539 Restorations channel here on HRpost. He reconditions a tired, sun-baked silver E38 750iL (plus other BMWs of this approximate vintage) back to mint condition.

Most reliable car I've ever owned, 2001 E39 M5. 186,000 miles, factory clutch (and yes I drove it hard). The only thing I changed was a camshaft position sensor, 2 alternators (2nd one totally my fault for no listening to service provider) driver's window regulator (I use my window ALL the time) and wear and tear items. That is literally everything in almost 200k miles. Oh and a radiator.

According to me, and this is my personal opinion....you don't know what you talking about. It is an absolute amazing car, and like any other car that is 20,years old, you will have issues. Let's not start talking about new cars with less millage and more issues. But, you are aloud to have your views.

I'm happy with the 2000 P71 Crown Vic. It is a solid, well built car, with oil, power steering, and transmission coolers, heavy duty suspension, etc. Rust free Southern car, never had the light bar, spotlight, etc. No cage inside. Tight suspension, bought new tires. It had the typical headlight flicker problem, solved with changing 18a thermal breaker with a 25a, per Ford bulletin. The 4.6 runs perfectly smooth, no clicks or other noises. I'm in it for a total of about $3000. I'll take this car over any of the more modern, overcomplicated cars. I can actually depend on it.

You know that the 7 series has an air suspension no? You need to replace an air pillow in the back or both of them because they probably don't work anymore and air pillows are expensive as fuck....

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.
Jan-Hendrik Bussmann
Jan-Hendrik Bussmann Prije 6 mjeseci
@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.
