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.

I'd like to see them polished. But i still like it and i think it looks clean. It may look better with polished but i dont have any idea how its gonna look so if it was mine, i would just leave it as it is.

Figure I'd join in

Let you know what you think? And what I should do next? I will post some picture later of the interior and I had the stereo converted and can now watch DVD's & IPOD video.

I agree I need to black out around the windows and the chrome on the top. I haven't figured out how I'm going to do it yet. Any suggestions?

I say coat the spokes of your rims black, and leave the lip chrome, sort of like mine. then you won't have to do work on the car. your car will look badass like that. Because I think most of the chrome right now is in the wheels.
