Mein Auto: 2001 750ilA
My previous E38 was a '97 740i, drove it until 160K, no fluid change, smooth shifting. Currently I drive a 750ilA, 152K on the clock, smooth shifting. I have noticed a whining noise that stops after a minute and once in a great while I may get a jerk at 10-15 mph, then nothing else. If I sit an extra minute or two, it never jerks at all, although it is just a slight tug. Anyone else experience this? My overwhelming sense is NOT to change the fluid unless there is an issue, plus I made it a point to get a decent warranty.

Anthracite Metallic: If this car were any faster, I would have arrived yesterday!!
BMW, the ONLY driving machine.! By the way, yes, it's fast...and NO! You can't drive it!! Power, elegance, styling, technology that is still cutting edge, the ultimate driving machine for sure.!
