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.

Maybe time to say goodbye 02 745

Ok I have been sitting here pondering the fact that my 02 745's warranty and svc package expires in 04/08. I hate to say goodbye to her but I may havew to consider doing it while under warranty to get the best trade in / resale. I was looking at an 04 or Newer , 7 Series whats your take on the improvements since 02 and is the warranty the same ( up to 100k ). I have to say I do like the new rear on the 750.

iDrive updates...Increased engine power...Option flexibility...Increased color selection (Interior/Exterior)...And so on and so forth...

I believe the improvements are worth a change with a warranty of course.

The 04 and newer do not come automatically with the 100K warranty. If you pick up a CPO car then you'll be good to 100K otherwise you'll have to buy an extended warranty.
