7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Thumbs down 760 li alternator

My '03 760 Li has only 25k miles and while driving one day, it died on me. It spent 7 days at the dealer. The alternator went bad they said. Also the battery. The dealer replaced the alternator with a remanufactured one. I asked why and they said it was impossible to get a new one. Is that true? I heard this is a common problem with BMWs.

Just had mine replaced last week along with the battery. Only took 1/2 a day for those items, did not fix the error code but at least i know they are new.
