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.

Did a bunch of lurking on here and in the other parts of the board and it helped a ton.

Cheers and see you all around!

(Oh and sadly my sigpic is from the previous owner as I keep forgetting to take a pic when I'm out with her!)
Congrats on the beautiful car. Lot's of winter wheel/tire sets on ebay to choose from so no worries.

Great car, congrats, love the wheels, the B7 is really special- enjoy

PS- don't forget craigslist for wheels/ snow tires. I got a set of used 1 season Dunlop Winterforce with the blue and red stripes still on the tread mounted and balanced wheels with TPMS for $450 (TPMS alone runs $50 per wheel) A physician turned his 750 lease in and put his snows up for sale that he bought through the dealer (Midwestern Auto Group) last year. I jumped on it even before my car has shipped from Ft Myers.

Good Luck !!!! Any updates, have much time to get her out of the city? I paid $2000 for 5 years of BMW Tire and Rim insurance, and initially thought I got swindled. 2 months later, I bubbled my front right tire and bent the rim. Would have been a $1600 replacement. As stated in other threads I opted out of the $5000 extended warranty, so far I'm about $1000 in for reconditioning. Hoping goes well after that. Absolutely love the car.
