Back after a LONG time..and have a question



I'm finally getting back into BMW drivers seat (been on here years ago)

I'm getting a 2007 750i, private sale, everything is fine except there's a check engine with 2A19 code

Anyone had any experience with this?

I can either get the car and take care of it myself or pay 500 extra and have the current owner fix it but it would mean not getting the car for 4 days (he doesn't have time to go to dealership earlier to resolve this).

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Why wouldnt the current owner take care of it as you havent bought it yet correct? These cars get costly in repairs quick , one reason I got rid of mine and got into a X5 3.5

Possibly the worst BMW model to get, only after the 745i, and not by much. Just be ready when things start going wrong.

I'm wondering which one is on the other end of the scale.

So this board isn't completely dead/deserted

I've ended up getting another one, from a second owner with all service records.

I know a lot of people say 7 series isn't reliable, I've had 540, 550, 330, 335 and a 740. It all depends really, when you get a used car that costs a lot brand new you can expect higher maintenance/repair bills.

For the last 3-4 years I've had SUVs only and what I saved in repairs I paid extra in fuel (my last Navigator had an average of 16l/100km, winter was around 20l/100km in the city).
