    Hi
    I am new to this forum, after having spent hours browsing trying to locate valuable information, I have came accross this site to be the most pro-active one.
    Well, two weeks ago, I picked myself up 750i v12, which looks fab, but drives poor. After having it checked, there have been a few niggles that require fixing, which I have highlighted below.
    Also, I would appreciate to hear anyone with similar problems and answers to the key issues.
    Soon I will be posting some pics and will keep you all posted with development.

    Here is my list of problems and fixes to happen:!
    1. kickdown = double kickdown a few seconds later
    2. rear coil spribg broken
    3. front bushes damaged
    4. wobble at speeds over 50mph - through steering and car
    5. advised emmisions hose split?
    6. advised coolant pulley requires replacement
    7. advised cooloant sensor required

    Well the above is a list of things I need to do to get the car up and running the way it should. Next steps will be to work on the power. Having spoken to DMS, they have advised that I can chip the car to take it to 370hp! Thats not a bad start. I think I will end up spending a lot of money on the car!

    Any advice and tips will be really appreciated!

    Thankyou all for the great feedback and welcome.
    I have carried out all wheel balances and they have been balanced. Have reD about the track arms being replaced and bushes for what is a new term to me known an shimmy. I have the car booked with birds Uk in uxbridge and hopefully should b in safe hands.
    As for the springs I was considering replacing the standard springs but as someone has mentioned poly bush and eibach springs, then the idea sounds pretty tempting.
    Going back to the double kick down, well that sounds a mystery to me. Could be the gearbox oil needs replacing or ecu update; will know more next week.

    Thanks again and for giving some good advice!
