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.

Exclamation 1995 e38 stalls on half tank!!! Help! Please!!

I own a 1995 BMW 740il E38. I usually fill my car up all the way in other words
a full tank. But for some reason every time my gas meter reaches half tank my
car stalls. But when i fill it up again it run fine until it reaches half tank
and stalls. What could be the problem?

e38 had problems with their gas tanks shrinking. Check your tank, maybe that could be the problem.
