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.

Need uplifting commentary

I am in withdraw, my car has been in the shop for a week now. No waking up in the morning what may go wrong.. No driving to work (been having the wife take me or driving the vette ) and no BMW period.

I am having my 100,000 mile - empty your wallet experience and its just taking way to long. The coolant pipe is being replaced, water pump, thermostat, expansion tank, and all coordinating gaskets and tubes.

On top of the normal engineering fail of what a n62 BMW motor has, I am also replacing the plugs, coils, and all the bushings in the front end. My car is a 02 and it seems that you have to replace the whole arm, joke....

Anyway, the car is due to be finished up this Thursday. I am so hoping that there will be some kind of BMW god that will give my car some kind of over the top power while driving her home after I pay off the second mortgage on the home that I had to take out for the repairs.

I have never loved but hated a car so much.

2 days to go.
