    Hi all new member contemplating maybe getting a 6er.

    I have seen a 2004 645CI with 127k miles on it.

    Is this likely to be a endless money pit what with the mileage and potential things to go wrong?

    How reliable are these engines and gearboxes?

    Anything in particular that I need to look out for?

    Thanks in advance

    It has FSH, looks to be in good condition and has a fare few options.

    How relaiable are the 645 engines and how reliable are the automatic transmissions in them?

    How much should I expect to pay for a service at a good indy?

    I forgot to ask would a 654Ci need the good stuff or is it ok on the normal stuff e.g. "95 RON".

    Also what kind of average mpg can I expect/miles to a tank.

    Before anyway says I know that I am not going to get mega mpg, it is just that I have diesel from which I get around 500+ miles from a tank as I was doing a lot of miles but I am not now, so I am just curious more than anything?

    Maybe, but my E91 never complains about it..... Just keeps on returning the same consumption and performance regardless of how expensive the fill up is.... Over hyped propaganda by the fuel companies in a desperate attempt to profit some more.....

    TBH dodgy, I ran my E46 330i for two years (and the previous owner for five years from the first day of registration) on the same 91RON unleaded petrol from the SAME petrol station.... Never had a problem and don't really need anymore power.....

    I still use the same petrol station with my E30, E91 and will do with my M3 as well (perhaps I might occasionally put super expensive shizzle in that one day)... Even put the same petrol from the same station in the MINI Cooper that we have had since it was born.... No problems there either... WHY PAY MORE? (The strap line is a coincidence!)

    The petrol station that I use is a VERY busy QUALITY outfit that to my knowledge has not had any problems....
