A well maintained E38 should have no trouble breaking the 300K mark so 200K isn't out of the question. The key ingredient being well-maintained.

You could probably get him to budge on the price...

Nope, it will still start. I'd start by checking the neutral safety switch. Much cheaper than replacing your transmission.

Nope, 'cause it's not the steering angle sensor. That has nothing to do with the the tilting of the steering column.

In any case, I just found a whole steering column out of a '95 740i for $150...

I have been running Lubro Moly Synthoil 5W-30 in my '95 since I got it (May '10) and it's been good. I imagine anything similar should work just as good.

Besides the dealer, I have no idea. My guess is the '95 keys would be hard to source. Best of luck.

They came with the car. I contacted BMW JP to get some info on the car, and I was told these were ordered with the car. So I'd be hard-pressed to think these are replica wheels.

Will this only work if there's already a nav. module installed? I only have the TV module in mine. Would that make swapping to a 16:9 more difficult?
