    Hello everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. I have had the pleasure of owning my 2020 740Li since Dec. 2019. (and many others but this post is my first, so I’ll attempt to be laser focused.) Long story short, (what long post that was mistakenly deleted?) I have been creepily hanging...
  2. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I bought a 2014 740 Li 2 weeks ago with 42k miles on it, from a reputable Chevy dealership (person traded for a new vette). 3 days into ownership AC started working off & on, would blow, cold in front, then fan would die down & quit, now mind you rear AC (controlled in rear worked) and cooled...

    I have had 5 seven series over the last 25 yrs. I just got a 2019 740 I xdrive. This car is slippery. The steering and cornering is no where near as tight a previous models. Even in sport mode its loose. Is there any way to adjust this or is this the new normal ?
  4. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hey all, I’m new to the forum here. I currently have a 2006 530i as well as a 2008 manual M5. I’m sure you can guess which of the two is the daily driver. I’ve had the 530i for nearly 12 years, and I’ve loved it for the most part. It’s comfortable, quiet, and overall pretty reliable. Great MPG...
  5. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    If i sit at idle, my CEL flashes for about 1/4 of a second every 2-3 seconds, slowly increasing in frequency and length, until the CEL just sticks on there and the car comes damn close to stalling. RPM's have dropped to nearly 0 when this happens, but usually hover at about 400. The CEL Code is...

    I am purchasing a 2001 740il with 162k miles next Friday. I have already performed a PPI and the car is in very good condition. I have since looked further in maintenance cost compared to my 2002 540i. Some state costs are similar while others say 740il is the worst. This 740il had the...
