Nothing really. Replacing my sunroof gasket for wind noise, and my drivers side seat foam to make the seat feel like new again...but otherwise nothing that is really an issue.

driver's side window sounds like someone is chewing on rocks when rolling up

seat belt/air bag fault warning

cat converters and the navi with little bit of body work

Boing745 02-09-2011 06:21 PM

When its very cold outside the navi is dimmed. Not sure, maybe thats how its supposed to be but when its very cold it will be really dim and later after a short drive lets say it goes back to normal.
Im out of hydraulic fluid apparently because when i go down my steep driveway it always gives me that suspension message showing the car leaning to the side. where can i buy that fluid, i checked that tank and it was empty, dont know where it went.

Every car I have ever owned with navigation has done this. I have always wondered why...I guess its normal.

1) front passenger tweeter out. may be amp problem.

2) nav computer needs replacing. reads original 2004 discs but won't read new 2011 discs.

3) phone cradle being replaced to use BTUM9000

4) oil leak that was supposedly fixed (in shop as we speak)

anything else...?

king0fspades 02-09-2011 08:08 PM

Nothing really.
When the temperature exceeds 110 here in Arizona, and the car is parked in sun, windows do not go up after rolling down. I have to force them to go up. I don't have that problem now. It will appear again in July.

The issue in having is that my alpine white on premium NASCa black leather is a head turner/chick magnet. Gets me too much attention. I took it to the dealer thru told me to stop washing it.

andytsou 02-09-2011 08:23 PM

I went to a BMW Specialist and he plug the bmw scanner to the car and it showed that it needed 18 updates. My car it has been acting weird head rest in the back seat sometimes move by it self, when I turn the AC on it only blows in one speed sometimes and it blow harder by itself while I'm driving, driver seat memory not working, navigation system Unit eject CD by itself, NAV its not working it all, also sometmes I get a static noise coming from the speakers that doesn't stop even when the car is off I need to turn the switch of the battery off for a couple minutes then the noise goes away.

Issues with 750li 2006
 
1) Left Passenger Door handle piece itself will "pop out" if pulled hard or if pulled while door is locked (anyone have a clue as to a fix, is it the entire door handle mechanism on the outside?)

2) Dreaded blown subwoofer, to top it off, bought SWS-8X (need 8Xi's 2 ohm model from my readings on this forum) so now I gotta get the sub swapped and then (still crackling/blown sound) I will need to get a logic 7 amp.

Had access to friend of a friends 2002 745's logic amp this evening but I heard no noise from the sub, so I am unsure of what is going on, doesn't help having wrong ohm sub (only left is replaced now) in the car. Gotta get that resolved............. ARGH!!!

Anyways, owned the car for 6 weeks, love it a lot and other then that I am very happy with the quiet/comfortable driving.

It's my dream to own a 7 series, (former 2002 330ci and 2007 335ci owner).

Any comments on my specific issues is greatly appreciated.

Hope everyone gets to enjoy there 7's this year with less drama then before :-)

hotrod2448 02-10-2011 04:22 AM

The rr door trim is coming loose where it rolls over the top of the door and it sometimes catches the the sunshade on the way up. I'll be fixing that this weekend.

wilson009 02-10-2011 04:48 AM

Oh let's see. If I go by DIS errors I've got a laundry list.

But the primary issues I'm dealing with are

Dynamic stability bar. Front or rear or both. Valve block replacement didn't fix it.

Knock sensors low inputs. Can't decide If its the sensor torque or connection or wire short.

Disa potentiometer off. Thinking my intake turbine tube is stiff or disa motor going bad
