    BMW 7 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 7 Series
    Hi, my 730i has a slow coolant leak, maybe .5 litre every 2 weeks. The only clue I have is that it seems to be pooling somewhere and if I brake hard it then splashes somewhere hot and I can smell it, in extreme hard braking from speed it will make a load of steam and look quite dramatic! Any...
