I am interested in buying a 2004 Bmw 760 Li done 70k, any comments? thanks
Planning on buying a 2004 Bmw 750 li, the car looks good and is well kept. Anything I
should be concerned about buying a high milage V-12? any input will help. Any majors
repairs I should for see? thanks
ask how it was maintained,if maintance records are avalable,take it for a test drive,while youre out in it,have your mechanic go over it.
Thanks, is 70 k miles too much for a 760 li
04 with 70,000 on it,no.
Are Bmw V-12 more expensive to maintain than V-8?
If I had a choice of buying a 2005 BMW 745 with 42 k milesc OR a 2004 760 BMW 760 li with 70 k miles at the same price- which worth it?
Hi Bmw98765 See you choice is good but before that have a proper test drive and check out condition of car through your mechanic then check out the condition of engine and how mush that car traveled.
Id go the 760Li, no known major issues with the engines and not much different price wise to service.
+1 On maintenance history, owner history, mechanic inspection, or have a friend mechanic come along for the test drive. I've bought, sold, and maintained at least a couple dozen cars, trucks, and motorcycles in my life time.
Agree most important to check service history, I try and always buy 1 owner with full BMW service history cars myself. If it has only done 70,000kms this should be the case. V12 vs V8 is an interesting comparison. The V12 will be more expensive to service than a V8. Also as this is a long wheel base V12 it is the heaviest car in the 7 series range. This impacts suspension bushes, tyres & brake wear. On the handling and braking front you should expect it to be less nimble and more difficult to pull up. Having said that you have an incredibly smooth and powerful car as a trade off. Since it's a BMW V12 I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you purchase though...provided the service history checks out. 70k's on a BMW V12 is nothing...although very economical for a V12 still be prepared to spend more on fuel with ave economy rated at 13.8 L per 100 kms I'd expect city driving to be around 16L per 100kms
Thanks, this is helpful
No doubt, getting it from the original owner and they have maintenance records. I bought a 95 525i a few years back. I bought it with 212k miles but it was very clean and they had every record. Purchased for $2400, I put another 20k miles on it, replaced the fuel pump, brakes, and alternator and then later sold it for $4500 after 8 months of ownership. ☺
The above does help ti know that it is ok to buy high milage cars
I have a v12 04 760i thinking about selling 30,000 miles no problems bought it new. what is it worth? Mike I have photos with nice 22 mike 707 974 3747
