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.

Mein Auto: 2003 745i
New to BMW

Hey all, just wanted to introduce myself and my new to me 2003 745i. She has a little over 180k on the odometer and what I consider very few problems. My wife and I have always wanted a BMW and we decided to take the plunge on this one. We live in central Indiana. I can not wait to get started on sprucing her (the BMW) up and making her all our own. Not really into gimmicks but performance, reliability and looks. Hope everyone has a great weekend and I look forward to learning about this great car.

Welcome to the joy and aggravation of BMW seven series ownership. You found the best resource on the net. Hopefully you have a service history for the vehicle, and a lot of the major problems have already been taken care of. Start reading through the prior posts. Especially the do it yourself section. This will explain a lot of the systems on the car, and how things operate.

Congratulations on your purchase of the ultimate driving machine.
Rick.

Thank you. Unfortunately I do not have any service records on it so I'll be going from scratch. Any info that anyone wants to share would be much appreciated. The 1st thing I'd like to do is see what software is needed to clear the change oil light. I am interested in coding and If I'm right is it INPA software?

You don't need to have INPA to reset it. Here is how.
