Mr. Bill,

you can read up on the BMW M60 4.0 liter V8, Nikasil block problems in the following site.

http://www.530i.org
or
http://www.530i.org/530i-Test.htm

If you happen to have the vin# of the 740il, that you are interested in, have a BMW service dept. check to see if the block has been replaced with an alusil block. Block replacements, out of warranty, will run $4000+.

Good luck.
