Cooling system. Found out if waterpump, T-stat, hoses, fan, radiator have been changed and when. Depends on how many miles are on it there could be a whole bunch of other things to check.

I have 162,578 miles on my 740il. This car runs great. Depending on miles and how often it was serviced means a lot. You need a good background history of the car. TAKE IT TO A BMW SHOP IF YOU DON'T KNOW!

get ready to write some big checks. but when youre driving a luxury car that handles like a sports car at 85mph, you have tendency to forget about it

Heh heh ... you'll soon find out.

I wonder how many of these E39 common problems are also common to our E38 brethren?
