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 I started my project by replacing the alternator. Then I figured why not just go ahead and replace the water pump. Then why not the belts and hoses. Today I noticed corrosion on my radiator. So I am ordering that.

I am attaching some pics so chime in. What time or mileage is expected to replace radiator? It was not leaking but does have corrosion on the inside and outside.

I can get a OEM BEHR model for $250 or a Nissens unit for $150. Any thoughts? Anyone ever use Nissens? Thanks.
