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.

Where to get Diagnostic Test?

Hi all,

This is the first bmw i owned, so I have no clues to just about everything. Please bear with me.

I had a bad experience with my dealer and after 5 weeks, my traction/brake/abs lights are still on. I can't trust my dealer anymore to have it fixed. So i called my warranty company and they said I can take it to other dealer, get an estimate and check if these things are under their warranty.

My question is, can I take it to a non-BMW dealership to get it diagnosed?

You are free to take your car anywhere to get a problem diagnosed at your expense. In Northern VA I recommend Alexandria Bavarian Service in Alexandria (of course), in the Crystal City area.
