I remember seeing a 750iL in my buddy's shop one day. When I asked about it, he said he was taking the entire top half of the engine apart just to change a faulty 25 cent o-ring. Total cost of the job? $1200

745's have a campaign out for 1 o-ring in the timming cover that breaks down and coolant blows everywhere. It pays 30 hours of labor and your suppousted to take out the entire engine. Ofcourse we can get it done in 10 hours and not remove the engine.

Someone in the neighborhood right outside of my apartment complex has a 760iL. Most of th etime, I notice they are driving a sorry ass loaner x3 2.5. Sad. I expect to pay big money for somthing that will hold up better, not the opposite.
