Without a model year/build date info...you could have a:
  1. 1995-740iA w/M60 engine
  2. 1996-1998 740iA w/M62 engine
  3. 1999-2001 740iA w/M62TU engine

Help us help you better by creating a signature that includes your model, model year, and build date...or add that info where it appears in the upper right of your posts.
