These E38's are well built machines. I have had what I would call routine mechanical problems due to age and wear. No serious oil leaks or O-ring problems such as the 02-03 7's are known to have. You should be checking the valley pan gaskets for oil leaks. This is common in this model. It is a easy DIY job if you are mechanically inclined.

Also www.E38.org is the best DIY online instruction website that I have come across. You will find about every problem & repair known to the E38's on this site.

Good Luck
