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.

bodykits for 7 series tend to be pretty expensive. You have, AC Schnitzer, Hamann, Wald, or the factory Alpina stuff. Either way, the cheapest i believe would be the Wald or the Alpina. I believe the Wald is about 2800 for the entire kit. I saw a brand new alpine for the 06+ on eBay for around 2600-2800 i believe. Keep in mind the alpine is just 2 pieces. The front bumper and the rear trunk spoiler.

If anyone know of other kits that are cheap let me know as I'm interested in kitting my 7 out as well.

Good Luck

I got a 750 trunk spoiler, Original ACS, that won't fit my car.

Pics in that link.

It's actually a gift from my uncle, so if I don't use it (which at this point I probably can't) I gotta sell it for him, so if you need, I got a slightly used one that I would give at lower price than brand new.

Seven, does that body kit Campos has fit an '02 745? They say it's for '06 and '07 but I thought they were the same body shape.

And where did you see the concavos with the tires fro $3,299?

The pics on Wings West site are actually of my car. The kit takes a bit of work to get to fit on pre-facelifted vehicles mainly cause the fogs are positioned differently.

But will any auto body shop have difficulty installing it correctly?

Is your car dropped too in the pics or no? The kit brings the car pretty low, I'm wondering if lowering the car after the kit would be consider too low. I don't want to be too close to the ground and grinding my teeth everytime I drive.

Well, any auto body shop that handles aftermarket work can probably take care of it. Talk to your local motorsports shops as they'll probably know where to go in your area.

And the car back then was dropped on Eibach springs.

Mein Auto: 7 Series
I bought off my front bumper off from vicrez. They sell through Amazon and ebay I bought directly from them since it was cheaper.

Roof spoiler: https://www.vicrez.com/2002-2008-bmw...roof-spoilers/
Trunk spoiler: https://www.vicrez.com/2006-2008-bmw...rear-spoilers/

Body kits for 7 series: https://www.vicrez.com/index.php?cat...scription=true

I will suggest to go with carbon fiber or polyurethane
