    Hei EL118,

    Thanks for keeping your post up to date with all the works that you are doing on your 730Li E66. I just bought myself a 730Li E66 (local spec) 2 weeks ago. It is a 2005 model, which was registered in Nov 2006. Your posts have given me much insights on the repair works that I should be anticipating. At the very least, before I change any parts I can see how much it cost you and do a comparison before getting cheated left and right.

    Well done my friend. Cheers.

    Update. 3rd year of ownership. maintenance cost as follows
    services x 2 + change bearing RM1,785
    Change Tyres, Continental CSC 3 245/50 R18 RM941x4 + alignment = RM3,883.
    I pump front & rear 230 instead of 230 front and 250 rear as recommended. the wear pattern is more even.

    Total cost for 3rd year RM5,668
    Total b/f 17,971
    Total c/f RM23,639 (3 years in total, tyres made up RM8,630)
    Car still in tip top condition. one of my business friend who had a ride in my car could not believe it is a 6 years old car.
