er, not sure...just didn't know the difference, so the "L" is longer? More interior or trunk space?

Increased leg-room for rear passengers. Several inches right after the B-pillar, you can see the difference in rear doors, they are visible longer.

Yes, they sure did.

My buddy in Seattle has a 2001 740iL with SP. It is quite a beast!

740 or 540
 
Any significant maintenance costs? i really like the 740 :p
Which one should I buy?

I bought a 740IL, I love it, I'm very tall (6'9") and this is the car for the tall exec. only problem is the outdated electronics in the 2001 and the @$$@#^ "service engine soon" light comes on for 100 different reasons. I love driving my car, the the next purchase will be japanese if this doesn't stop!

Hey Wong,

at this link http://www.bimmerboard.com/forums/posts/22364 that you provided, I found this text :

" excessive wind noise from the sunroof (make sure all four "lift pads" are present under the car). "

so I checked the lift pads and they were two missing. I bought them and pluged em in, but I am still hearing that wind noise.........any suggestions?

Please give your suggestions here http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=180732 so I can keep track.....

Thanks ins advance.

4" longer wheelbase behind the front doors giving more room in the back

jeff jarrett 06-18-2007 04:57 PM

i am new to bimmerfest. i bought my first bmw about a month ago and it is a 740il 1995 looks new and runs great. can anybody tell me if this is an e65 series, and what motor this is?

M.Wong 06-18-2007 05:49 PM

The 1995 740iL is an E38 and came with the 4.0 V8 "M60" engine. All 7 series from 1995-2001 are E38s. The 2002-current short wheelbase 7er is an E65, long is an E66.

However, some 1995 engines were changed out due to a "Nikasil" block issue. More info on that here: Koala Motor Sport report on the 1995 E38 V8

Ok so I own a 93 740iL and I've been looking at some rims, particularly the ones that are in a picture above. I went to the bmw dealer to check them out and they want $650 per rim. Thats insane! Is that a ridiculous price? I know its forged aluminum but still....Does anyone have a set of those rims that might possibly want to sell them for a reasonable price?
