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.

Thinking about buying a 7?

I'm in the mood to buy a new car. I really love look of the 7 series. I'm probably going to buy a 2002-2005 E65 since my wife won't let me go over 12k. The only thing that is stopping me from buying one is. I heard a lot of bad reviews about the first batch of the 7's. With them having a lot of problems with leaking, transmission going out, etc.
I read a few posts on the forums, and it seems that everyone love's their 7's. Can some of you enlighten me on common problems with the 7 series?

At the year you looking at an the amount you want to spend, unless you are mechanically incline or don't mind spending $$ then I say STAY AWAY.
