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.

Ran into a bit of a snag while doing this install. The SOS cable connector was firmly jammed underneath the small plastic piece designed to hold the cpt8000 and trunk lock connectors in place. After twenty minutes of trying to free it, I eventually just gave up and cut the cable near the base of the curved plastic piece that holds the coiled cord (the one that has to be removed.) I'm happy to report no adverse effects from doing so. iPhone works great with the iDrive system.

Same thing happened to me. I also just cut the cable knowing it had nowhere to go on the CPT8000
