Cars sold in other countries have less gadgets then the ones sold in the US-market.. thats why... most of the 7`s in Norway are similar equipped...some of them dont have the comfort-seats, no memory seats, electric curtains in the backdoors and so on...

anyway, today som moron used a key to make a straight statement on my left fender....really nice done....stupid haters...

Got some major issues with the car suddenly... Been parked and used very little the last 3-4 months since i have moved near work and dont need the car... the problems are:

*Airbag default
*belt tensioner
*engine failure lamp
*one xenon light just stopped working (dont think its the bulb)
*the right numberplate light and reverse light suddenly stopped
*steering wheel is kind of dead... None of the buttons work, no light in them either..The horn is dead.. the auto-wipers turn of sometimes... But the electric steering adjustment works...
*the outside mirror turns all the way around...
*sunroof only tilts up around 1 cm in the back..when i close it it goes almost all the way down in the back (the same way when it opens full)

Think there are som more minor faults...cant/wont remember them right now... Is it really that bad of a car? all of these problems came within 3-4weeks...

Did you turn the battery switch in the trunk off when you parked it for the 3-4 month period? I would check the battery.

Much easier to just open the cap on the backside and leave it over night...

Not happening much here... changed the oil and filters, some things the front of the car..dont know whats its called in english...but it made the "clunky" noice from the front part of the car dissapear...

Gonna remove the ask and L7 soon and get them fixed...

Fixed the doorhandle in the backdoor as well..havent worked for a year or so...

The "fun" upgrade is that I HATE the tiny foglights on the pre-facelift bumper... So im removing them..and replacing them with the bigger facelift foglights... atleast try... hope the will look good...

OMG! You got keyed?!! That's one of my worst fears. I think I would need therapy if that happened.....sorry dude.

I enjoyed the pictures. That's a nice ride. Why are the cops after you?

It actually might have been me...was on my way to check up on my jag at the workshop between drammen and kongsberg

Wow...im an international spot-celebrity

Yeah the E65 is quite rare in Norway.. most of the buyers would rather buy an E60... Eventhough the E65 is cheaper...
