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.

Dont be afraid to try...

Just wanted to take the time to encourage members to complete as many repairs yourselves. I'm not a mechanic by any means,
and was definitely intimidated with this car because of all it's mysteries and sensitivities to issues.
But I'm pretty proud of myself to say that because of the DIY section of this forum and the expert,
as well as, unselfish contributions by all these members on here I have been able to complete many repairs/upgrades
that I normally would have just took it to the dealer or shop for.
So far I've done the following myself:
- Angel Eye Mtec3 Upgrade
- Replaced brake pads & brake sensors
- Replaced cracked coolant reservoir tank
- Replaced Serpentine/Drive belt
- Replaced Belt Tensioner
- Replaced Idler Pulley
- Changed oil
- Replaced CCV gaskets
- Removed, Cleaned and greased interior blower motor (had chirpy noise)
I know many of you have tackled even more serious repairs/upgrades but my point in this thread is
to keep encouraging others to save money and not to be afraid to TRY.
Fun Doesnt Come Cheap!
