What to look for when purchasing a used 03-05 745Li
I'm looking forward to purchasing a used 745LI. Any advice from pervious owner, owners or mechanic the common problem to look for on this model?
I test drove one yesterday which drove well. I put a deposit down on it and return after work to sign the paper.
I ended up doing a once over one more time before I sign the paper work and boom. I started the car and grayish blue smoke appeared.
My heart drop and the salesman had I blank look on his face. He had the nerve to say that was common with the 7 series nothing in wrong.
I laugh and told him where I'm from where there smoke, there fire. And something was definitely wrong here.
So, I got my deposit back and walked away from the deal. He ended up calling me to tell me it was a O2 sensor seal, leaking oil into the engine compartment.
After researching the thread here it seem he was trying to pull one over on me again. I want to thank everyone here for saving me from making a costly purchase. Thanks for threading.
