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.

They are all 50 state legal. As far as a 03 cat fitting a 05 engine im not sure if that will work as 05 and up engines are a little bit different.

I believe it's 06 and up that are different. Exhaust should be the same set up

Thanks guys they made to different versions from 02-03 and 04-05 the only difference between them is the direction one of the flanges is welded on and even though I have a 05 I have a 03 version already on car dealership is clueless on why it's like that maybe a previous owner did a engine swap with a older engine
