Highest mileage G11/G12

I wanted to start a thread to see how many miles people have put on their 7s and what major repairs they have done.

I have a 2016 750i M sport with 58,300.

Had the turbo coolant leak at 58,000

I just broke 40K on my 16 750i.

- High / Low Fuel Pump failure around 22K
- Coolant Leak around 25K
- Steering column grinding / replaced 36K
- Squeaking over bumps / replaced wishbones at 30kish
- Cooling Sean fan failure x 2. 25k and 36k

Everything else is more cosmetic.

2018 740Ld

Currently on 19.2k miles

Both laser lights replaced under warranty @14k miles due to moisture creating water droplets

Drivers seat base cushion replaced under warranty due to failure @16k miles. I wouldn't mind but I'm only 15 stone (95kg) so not my ass that broke it.

Can I ask how your driver seat cushion failed?

More importanly, how does it look when the dealer changed it? Since they only change the leather cover/cusion causing the problem, they have to take the seat apart and manually wrestle with the foam qnd the leather cover and I yet have to see them doing a good job.

2016 750i xDrive. 70,250 miles. No issues whatsoever.

Customer Care Package was done at 50k. I purchased car CPO with 54k in August 2019.

Oddly enough I knew the former owner. He had no issues whatsoever either.

The right side thigh support failed. It felt like a piece of metal was digging in my leg. They replaced that part and it now is comfy.

Seemed to do a good job to my eyes. They had the car for 3 days and as they had already damaged a wheel (which they replaced) they obviously took their time over it.

80,000K

Had a turbo replaced and the thermostat. Also two of the rims got stress cracks. Apparently its a known flaw in the odd number sized rims so I replaced all 4 with 20 inch. She is running smooth now.

Not mine, but that's probably the most miles I've seen on a G12.

BMW 740d G11

I just pass 42.020 km and absolutely nothing to report, except ...

  • Engine oil done every 10K km with oil filter by me (castrol edge 5w30)
  • Disel filter every 20K km (done twice)
  • Air filter (done twice)
  • Castrol Brake Fluid DOT 4 (done four times, every year by me)
  • Double cabin "pollen" filter (done twice)
  • Air conditioning disinfection twice by me
  • Regular service by BMW every 30K km

BTW - In my opinion, the recommended oil and filter service every 30k is a murder for the engine and I absolutely do not agree with these recommendations, lifetime transmission oil and maintenance-free as well. (it will be done in the future for 100%)


I know that after the inspection in BMW the brake pads wear is
  • 45% Front and 65% Rear (auto hold always on)

So bmw initially quoted me 5500.

I told them to go screw themselves as I have been a loyal customer, had bought multiple other bmws including an older 7 series.
They made me call bmw of NA and file a complaint.
After some hassling they came back at me with a quote of 2100.

I told them to shove it again and ended up getting it done at an Indy for 1500.

The whole experience has left a bad impression of bmw on me as they still insist on placing plastic and rubber parts in their engines which They know fail eventually, sometimes as early as 30-40k miles according to some other members.

After I get rid of my current 7 I don't think I will get another 7 series for quite some time.
