7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Valley Pan Replacement

Is this a common problem in the 2001 740i? I noticed a few drops of coolant on the garage floor. BMW wants $875 to replace it. I was referred to local BMW Tech that has his own place that will do the Valley Pan and replace the gaskets (also suggested by BMW).
His price will save me several hundred bucks. His references are excellent as well.
Is there anything else I should pay attention to in the preventative maintenance department while they have the top off?

Thanks for any input.
