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:
I had run over a piece of tire that I couldn't drive around due to traffic pulled off to the side

Seems like it started behind drivers headlamp from what I can tell

Damn man. Think the puncture of your tire that led to implode the surrounding of your front end. Hydraulic fluid was the fuel to the fire. I've seen something similar to intentional burnout with rear tires imploding and destroying the rear body.
