The 740d was an amazing car

Lovely car you must have money to burn

 

Actually more work hard play hard

 

NIce. How does the 6.2 NA compare to the 5.5 Komprerssor?

I've never had a 5.5k so can't compare. The 6.2na in my last AMG was a really nice engine, shame it was let down by a pish gearbox.

I thought the 5.5 biturbo did not come in until face lift.

Obviously I thought wrong.

Does the 6.2 engined car in this shape have mct box or old tq box?

The 6.2na came in the prefacelift from launch till 2011 on 11 plates.

The 5.5TT started in 2011 on 61 plates.

The pre facelift came with the MCT from launch.

The 6.2na M156 engine had headbolt issues from 2006 right up till 2011, so you need to be careful. Only the later 2011 cars were ok and came with uprated headbolts. You need to check the engine number to be sure though.

The 5.5TT only came in the prefacelift for 2yrs 61,12,62 and couple 13 plates. You can tell by the interior it is slightly different from the 6.2na.

The facelift started in 2013 on 13 plates and had alot of changes.

The 5.5TT is a totally different animal, sooo much torque avail you need a diff luckily mine has one but alot don't so its not standard.

£10-£15k can get you around 800-850bhp :D

It just depends where you want to go with the car, as a daily for the moment it is fine.

BM530, what year was your 740D? Was it pre or post the 2012 facelift?

 

Looking at cars, 730 / 740D at present.
