    Re: Need Advice on 730Li 2005-2006

    bought an 06 730li mid this year. only decided on purchase as it was PML serviced.

    car has been ok so far though some minor probs sent it to workshop.

    just crossing my fingers, transmission does not do kaput else more moolah$$$$$

    other thing, this car's turning circle is so huge, it cant make a two lane u turn, quite problematic.

    Mileage is the key not the age of the car. Generally the 730 is a problem free car, as for the lwb u shd try parking in the parallel lots in side lanes where the road is narrow. Quite a challenge. Try to install rear camera aftermarket or original, helps a lot.

The ride is very comfy but thirsty, full tank probably gives u 400km. I would recommend u send them to KBS for a thorough check before u sign. $125,000+ for a 4 yrs old 730Li is value for $$$$

    hi bro, i just got a dec 2005 730Li for a month, previous ride W220 S-class. I'm getting almost 600kms before the reserve come out 50% city 50% highway, meter shows 12.5-13L/100, 15 % heavy foot. Think yr 2 friends driving style lar On trip to KL can hit almost 730km per tank, driving averege 150km/h.

    I change most of the wore out parts once i got my ride esp the rubber hose system and water pump, my mileage 135k. Damage 6.5K parts are cheaper than S-class should serve me well till end of COE.

    This is a very comfy car, esp the seat, it can move in so many directions till it fits yr driving position nicely. 150-180km/h no feel at all only set back, turning circle larger than S-class, else no complain.

    Hi Bro and Sis, have to borrow this thread as I am not qualified to post a new thread yet.
    Beside the above mentioned, are there any more diff between the 730i(E65) and 730Li(E66)? Also, does PML update the maps for you? Or is there other way to update the outdated maps?

    TIA.
