BMW’s Recalling The M760Li Again Over An Oil Leak

Just a couple of months ago, BMW issued a recall for the M760Li over an oil leak. Now it’s recalling it again over a similar issue – only this time it’s more than doubled the scope.

The initial recall, issued two months ago today, identified a problem with the big performance sedan that posed the threat of leaking oil onto the front brakes.

At the time it was estimated to affect just 97 vehicles in the United States. But the latest notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has 206 examples of the same recalled for the same problem.

The M760Li is a new model at the top of the 7 Series range that stands as the performance flagship, packing a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 rated at 601 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque to take on the likes of the Audi S8 and Mercedes-AMG S63, not to mention the Alpina B7.

Along with the M760 recall, BMW is also calling in another 92 additional 7 Series models over a completely different issue. This time it’s the left tail lamp assembly, which will need to be replaced on certain examples of the 2013-2015 740i, 740Li, 740Lxi, 750i, 750xi, 750Li, 750Lxi, and 2014 ActiveHybrid 7.
