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: 2006 750li
Puddles on rear floorboards


We have a brand new 2006 750li. No problems until rainy season. Last weekend, we noticed the rear mats were soaked. Upon further review, we saw that there was significant water (uh, puddles) on the rear floorboards. Dropped the car off at the dealer and they are working on it - they had to remove all of the carpets and seats. Needless to say, I am concerned with the diminution in value in the car.

Has any had this problem? If so, how was it handled? Help!

tell the dealer to buy the spongey car back from you in good faith. A good dealership would do this. They conservatively depreciate the value of your current car and sell you another 2006 750 for the difference in price. Sucks that you probably have to dish out some more money, but then you wont have a sponge for a car.

Claim it as flood damaged, or have BMWNA buy it back since it's not supposed to leak.
