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.

You have the American dream right there....house with a white picket fence and American muscle in the driveway Good purchase....great car and you won't take a bath on depreciation like you would with a new body 7

Oh yeah....and 4K miles is just ridiculous low mileage ...that's a true garage queen right there.

Very nice! It's amazing that that Viper is almost 10 years old. It still looks as good as most of the super cars today and can probably give most of them a good spanking. Are you going to get a warranty for the 7 or just chance it when CPO expires?

no way I would spend 5k on an older car for a warrty. My warrty ran out aug. I was really just planning on selling it and get another cpo new body 7 but figured the viper was better, and keeping my current 7. Hopefully it works out. I also have a few grerat Bmw mechanics so Im not to worried.

I've been away from this forum and kinda trying to catch up on some guys that i know. I found other hobbies that kept me busy had no time for my car or anything else so checking up here and there sometimes.
I bought 2006 EVO MR that im working on now so thats my main focus right now.
Also thinking about selling the 745 and buying a 2007 b7 or a 750 2006-2008 yr model. I just dont think any other luxury car will be as nice as the 7 series and everybody loves them. So Im thinking about updating and dont wanna invest any more money into mine anymore, I think i did all i want to it.
You got a 7 and a nice viper for those days when you wanna have fun. I bought a much cheaper car but after doing some bolt ons I will to have a fun ride to take out on weekends or something. LOL
And for my going out with wife days I always got my 7

I also got addicted to building and racing 1:10 scale RC cars so alot of my time goes into that. Its very fun stuff.
