Hey Guys I have put down a deposit on a 745Li and was wondering what i have to look out for, I was going to spend alot of money on a 5series but decided since my mrs is expecting i better save the cash for the next few years then back to the 5series.

The 745Li is a 2002 edition with all the gadgets (i think) i.e Rear Comfort Seats (Heated+Vented+Reclining+memory), rear electric blinds, front driver+passanger Heated+Vented+Massaging+Memory Seats, Rear KAHN Entertainment Package, 22 or 21 inch KAHN Alloys.

And it has 115,000 miles on the clock (i know its high but has full BMW service history).

Just wanted to get feed back from you guys as to what to look out for as this is my first 7er and dont know much about 7er's, it looks fantastic though.

Also i checked the lights and they where xenons from the outside but have not checked if its HID conversion or not

Do all the 7 series come with Xenons as standard?

Whats the main thing i need to watch out for and what should i look out for.

I appreciate your help guys, Many thanks in advance.

the coolant pipe that runs from the water pump to the rear of the block that sits in the bottom of the V. make sure that's been done, that's a $$$$ job.

btw- if you think an E60 is a world of hurt to your wallet, RUN, don't walk, from an '02 E65. We had to bail from our '04 and that's WITH an extended warranty.

Logic 7 always go. Sunshades ALWAYS go. Check for leaks into cabin from sunroof. Check inside the trunk where the spare is for any water or moisture.

All E65/6 supposedly SHOULD have xenons.

Not all E65/66 have xenons in Europe.

Rear electric blinds is standart for Li

I would check suspension sind`s it`s 21".
Logic7 is must have on E65, so it should work, because there`s some module for that what cost a lot.
Main thing on E65 is latest software version.

I am writing to tell you about a new BREAKTHROUGH method for repairing a leaking Coolant Transfer Pipe in the BMW N62 V8 engine block using the BimmerFix Stint. The N62 V8 is a popular BMW engine that was used from 2002 thru 2010, in such fabulous vehicles as the BMW 735i, 740i, 745i, 750i & Li, 645Ci, 650i, 540i, 545i, 550i, and the X5 SUV.

Located deep inside of this BMW N62 engine is a Coolant Transfer Pipe, which carries antifreeze from the Water Pump to cooling chambers within the engine. However, the Front Seal on this Cooling Tube can fail in as little as 40,000 miles, and start leaking antifreeze from the engine block, through a weep hole in the Timing Chain Cover. When this happens, the car will lose antifreeze from the engine, and the engine will overheat.

In the past, this has been a very expensive repair because it required disassembly of the engine, in order to access the leaking Cooling Pipe Seal. The original method of replacing the crossover Coolant Transfer Pipe required the removal of the Timing Chain Cover. This repair could cost $6,000 or more at the BMW Dealer.

Then, an after-market Collapsible Coolant Pipe was developed to save time and money on this repair. This Collapsible Coolant Pipe method involves removing the Intake Manifold, cutting out the old Coolant Pipe and installing the after-market Collapsible Coolant Pipe. But even this method required many hours of shop labor and expensive parts and supplies. The repair bill for this method can still cost between $1,500.00 and $2,500.00 to remove the Intake Manifold, cut out the old Coolant Pipe and install the new Collapsible Coolant Pipe.

However, BimmerFix Products Co. has discovered a BREAKTHROUGH system to stop the leak! The BimmerFix method is much faster and less expensive than these old methods. This simple, yet durable and long lasting method inserts the BimmerFix Stint into the leaking crossover cooling tube, through the Timing Chain Cover. The thin aluminum sleeve creates a long lasting repair that is much easier and less expensive to install than the old repair methods.

The new BimmerFix Stint will stop the Coolant Pipe leak, and only requires the removal of the Water Pump. This new patent protected invention can save YOU or your customer’s time, hassle, and thousands of dollars. It works or your money back!

Save time and money! Take a look at Bimmerfix Products Company - Bmw N62 V8 Coolant Transfer Pipe Repair Kit For Bmw 545i 550i 645ci 650i 745i 750i X5 And More By.

Thanks for your time!
