Maybe a bad battery. All this happened at once, or have you had ongoing symptoms?

Merry Christmas

may your valve stems not leak, may your valley pan stay dry, and mostly, may your transmission be jerk free.

Have a great Christmas this year, and a happy and trouble free new year.

Love that interior colour. I have an 08 individual 750Li with Champagne interior, Ruby Black Metallic paint. Going on over 210,000 km and still enjoy every drive. Same wheels as you.

I'm on non runflats and have a full sized spare (2008), so I don't have that anxiety. I guess if I went to runflats I'd probably renew my AMA membership.

Cheers

IF not convinced, then add oil and see the level rise on the dipstick. Just don't overfill. when dipstick is at minimum, you can add at least a full litre to bring it to max.

My understanding is it just adjusts the transmissions shift points, both up and down for a more sporty drive. There is a separate control for the suspension (EDC) in the idrive.

You may be goggling the wrong thing. E65 and E66 refer to the short wheel base(E65) vs long wheel base(E66) or L. You need to look at 745i to 750i changes (or 745Li to 750Li)

try reinitializing by moving the steering column back and forth from their maximum positions. (like the way you reinitialize windows or the sunroof)

It was US cars only that had the two button wheel, some legal safety issues I think. Only from 2002, to part way through 2003.
