Exclamation The Design Flaw In N63 Engine

My apologies to all, but this site is in Russian. It describes the problem with N63 engines, in particular the very high temperature of 900 Celsius in the engine bay and how it screws up nearby components.

The site has lots of interesting photos.

Try Google Chrome translate feature. It's not 100% accurate but you will get an idea.

The site lists many nasty problems and frankly I am freaking terrified.

Mein Auto: i want a 750li
I want a 750li & I am learning as I read more on these cars. So I read that BMW will repair the N63 engine for free or replace it? Correct me if I am wrong.
Also, is the N63 on 2009 - 2011 models only?

They will perform tests and then wait for BMW to authorize the repairs. I don't think they'll replace an engine since it costs 30k.

BMW will repair engine components that described in N63 CCP only. For the rest of the pile of crap you better have warranty. N63 up to 2013 models. N63TU from 2013. Go with I6 for reliability it is no brainer.

LOL. New York City, try getting a 740. It's cheaper and more reliable than the 750. Only thing you're sacrificing is some power, but owners of the I6 state the motor has plenty of it.

Ah okay, what year is the 740li with the same body as the 09+ 750li?

Up to 2012, I believe. The 2013+ models received minor changes to the front faschia, got LED angel eyes, and slightly tinted tail-lamps.

Look for a loaded 2013 740LI with M package, LED package, executive, B&O, etc. Whatever you do, just don't put 24s on it.

2009-2012 7-series (non M-sport):



2013+ 7-series (non M-sport):



2009-2012 7-series (M-sport):



2013+ 7-series (M-sport):



As you can see, BMW didn't really change it up a ton on the face-lifted models (exterior wise).

I'm on a 28k budget (Cash) don't think that will happen. lol

The more I read the more scarier it's getting. Seems like there is more horror stories than good ones with these 7 series. Dam...

Thanks J750 for those photos.

So the M sport is basically a different front bumper?

Putting down $30k and financing the rest would be your best option, IMO.

Front bumper, side skirts, and the rear bumper. Pretty sure you get some M badged sill plates, steering wheel, wheels, etc. It really does make the car look that much better, but they are usually a couple grand more than non M-sports.

Put 28K down, finance the rest. The trick is to get a newer model with warranty. If not an option, then older model car must be CPO and have valid extended warranty on it. Also, consider 740LI. You will save yourself from troubles with 750LI

NYC, remember, CPO and extended warranty are the key factors to more or less peaceful ownership of a bitch like 750LI.
