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.

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question to our 7 Series forum, you'll get more help in here. There is a discussion about the hood issue here -

Here's another thread to try. From my understanding it's more difficult to get the hood open on the facelift model, that is on the first generation vehicle.
