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.

well in my short drive, 10 mins before I said sold, the car didnt get excessivly hot. This one does have a corsa aftermarket exhaust that does aleviate alot of the undercar heat by removing alot of the cross piping. Really not alot to say other than its a sick sick car, it looks insane its fast as hell, its blazing red it sounds like a monster and its showroom new. The interior is straight from a race car the car pulls over 1g on the skid and the seats are awesome. its a red viper so yea its awesome. Car also has custom 3 piece forged wheels in black with color matched red lips. 345 rr tires is crazy looking in person.

With only 3500 miles on the clock you will and should have a great investment and a great looking machine.

Better than the vette

WOW! Is it okay to say I'm jealous? That is one of the meanest cars you can get. And I'm sure it's a blast to drive, especially with NO driving aids haha be careful though bro, I hear it is very easy to get those things sideways

More pics please, and a sound clip would be amazing
