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.

Mein Auto: 08 750LI

I have a 2006 BMW 750LI and I just installed a transmission coming off a 2008 750LI and the mechanic is telling me that it wont program. Does anyone know if the 08 is different?

Any help is appreciated.

My mechanic just swap a used transmission out of another E66, into a different year E66. He had to download the transmission information from one to the other. He got it to work. I can't believe it can't be done. You just need to find someone who knows how to do the right programming. I'm being vague on the dates because I'm not sure what year cars they were. If I'm completely off-base I'm sure someone here will correct me. You can do a check of www.realoem.com part numbers. For the different years of the two vehicles you're talking about. But from what everything I've read the same transmission is in all the E65/E66.
