    Hello everyone, am curious since the e38 topics have been relatively quiet for a few years.

    So I want to know anyone here left (especially the otai's) because I just got myself one and would like advice on how to maintain this Wonderful Beast of a machine..

    Also to talk to fellow bimmer owners and because I finally got one..

    So, cheers to all. Would appreciate and welcome any reply I can get.

    Yes ...sharing is caring indeed. This was the advice that i got from our wise Otai Adam :

    1. Which E38 model has the least problems?
    728i, cuz if you factor a car that's within Malaysia, 728i has the least problems and if it does, the parts are easier to find.

    2. The common problems, that I can think of right now is, abs sensor, asc/dsc, electric seat 'twists' some sensors here and there...

    3. Average maintenance cost?
    Normal oil change and service, not that pricey, sometimes cheaper than e39

    4. How's the drive and performance ?
    Super smooth, super responsive, quick and can top speed like nothing..

    5. Comfortable?
    Not as comfortable as newer models for 7 series but still very enjoyable, very relaxed.

    6. What's the last year model for the E38?
    2001
