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.

Steering heavy

I havent been able to drive for a couple of months, and got back in my 750 today, its been used but not a lot. the steering feels heavy to me, I'm probably being paranoid, but is there anything I should have a quick look at? I have no warning lights or anything, it just feels a bit on the heavy side

Just curious when was the last time you flush the system/changed hydraulic fluid? How many mile/kilometers on the car now? Do you know if it's ever been changed? And what are the outside temperatures running right now? Compared to when you last used the car. Colder temperature should make a whole lot of difference but sometimes they do when the fluid gets old.
