    Evening everyone. Just got myself an e65 735i. There are a few issues with her. But hopefully nothing major. The passenger front door speaker is the only one that is working and it’s poor at best. Cracking static noise all the time. The sound is the same with the stacker used.signal CD...

    Hello all, I am hoping you can help me, I recently purchased a 1999 E38 735i with 92,000 miles. After a couple of weeks of ownership I noticed the car was intermittently losing power at higher revs under medium to heavy throttle power. This was happening between 3000 - 5500rpm. The car would...

    I have seen a 1998 735i V8 advertised locally to me for a good price. I dont know much about the E38's but this one is rather appealing due to the 74k with full service history and all old MOT's to back up the mileage! The thing that worries me are the parts. Are parts easy to source for this...

    Hi guys. Just got my hands on a 2002 E65 735i with 75,000 miles. Owner said the gear changes were not quite right sometimes and there was no difference after a gearbox service so he decided to sell after having the car for 2 years. I thought it could be just the Guibo Joint but I do not think it...

    Hi, I'm looking at a BMW 735i 2002 model, it's only done 47K miles, 12 stamps (12!) on the service history, MOT history looks fine. Obviously concerned at the very low mileage, it's had one owner and they have had it in for service sometimes twice a year whilst only driving say a couple...

    I'd like to lower the car so that it doesn't look like a 4x4 - can anyone recommend a decent set of springs for the E38 which actually make a visible difference? I have 18" m-pars on mine. I've heard a lot of springs which say 50mm lower or whatever don't actually make any difference at all...
