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.

Hey all,

On the 30th of January I'll be finalizing my deal with a local BMW dealer on Rt.22 in NJ. The car is a 745 Li 2002, very well maintained, was driven by a local doctor ( from what the salesmen tells me. 30K )

I have went through the pages here and read a few interesting things but I want your opinion on what I should watch out for and what I should have corrected prior ownership of the car. I understand that there's a software glitch that was updated and there was also something with the fuel tank sensor; if the gas level drops below a 1/3 or so and the gas moves from one side to the other it creates a problem. 2 issues have been dealt with and I would like to know from your experience what else I should have checked out on the car before I buy it.
