I'm sorry to hear of your problems. We have a 91 735iL with 145,000 miles. It is the best car we have ever owned. Better than MBz's, and even the Mazda 929's (Which were suprisingly GREAT cars). Mom's mid-life crisis caused her to buy a 01 330 conv., and I am unaware of any problems with it. Look on the bright side, you could have an old Jag.
