With the 4.4 its always a hit or miss situation after 180K...Both engine and auto transmission! The rest of the car is all small things, nothing that you cant DIY. If you want a reliable E39, find a clean 96-98 528i, the older driveline was pretty much bulit proof. For the lack of power, just add a blower to it and you have 540 Hp without the agravation!
