740i

  1. California
    New to owning a BMW, previously only leased them and had all service done at the dealer(s) - mostly oil changes and mfr. fixes. Now I have a 2013 BMW 740i which just hit 60K miles. It's definitely due for a oil change and I don't know what else. I called a couple of mechanics including...
  2. 7 Series & 8 Series
    Upon recently buying this gem of a car, I replaced the power steering pump. It had no power whatsoever. Replacing the pump improved it by about 50%... I know it's no where close to how it should perform. What could cause weak power steering with a new pump?

    I purchased my 2016 CPO 740i with only 13.9K miles but I feel like my average mpg is too low even if I don't really care much about gas I'm worried that there may be something wrong with it

  6. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    I'm thinking of purchasing a loaded 2016 BMW 7 series for $47000 with 60k miles on it. I've always wanted a BMW 7 series and this price is what I was looking for. How reliable is it? I'm new a bimmer and I know oil changes and annual maintenances can get quite pricy. Do you think I should pay...

    Hello everyone, I’m looking for some help figuring out what is wrong with my instrument cluster. Only the MPH gauge works. The rest of the gauges sit at zero (all the way left). It is also giving me a few error codes in German even though it set to English and reads English on all other menu...

    Good evening, I'm the type of guy that loves all that is German, especially if it has an M/// anywhere on the body.

    I just got my car back from the shop, had the radiator, thermostat, fan clutch, and serpentine belt replaced.
