I just picked up a '10 35d. I'm very pleased with the diesel after a couple weeks. Maybe you should consider an X5M if you're coming from the M5.

oil leak on alternator

You know it just occurs to me while looking at the shape of that gasket. It's rather phallic.

I think some BMW engineer literally intended to bend us all over with repair bills. Lol. I guess the...

Thanks for all the users that chimed in but I have bad news. I finally got the dealer on the phone and he's keeping the 750 for himself.

So I guess the search is still on.

On that transmission that's kicking you may just need new transmission fluid, especially if you're leaking.

I'll probably give the dealer another chance to get back with me. The rarity of the 750iL attracts me. As well as the lack of chain guide repair and vanos issues with the 12 cylinder.

No definitely not a transmission issue. It's a slight dip in power. Purely speculation on my part but maybe it's a clogged fuel injector or something.

Wow, we have similar threads going on Pj740il. I'm beginning to see how treacherous 7er ownership can be, and I thought sorting out my leaks with my e63 6er was a roller coaster!
