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.

I think they have a recall for that. Go on the bmwusa.com site and check for recalls.

ROLLAWAY: Certain model year 2005 through 2008 7 Series equipped with the Comfort Access option and manufactured from August 23, 2004 through July 24, 2008 have an electronic key and an electronic connection between the gear shifter and the transmission (shift-by-wire) that automatically shifts the transmission to Park when the driver presses the Start/Stop button to shutdown the engine. If the engine Start/Stop button is pressed 2 or 3 times within a short time interval, the system may shift the transmission to Neutral rather than Park. If using the electronic key (Comfort Access mode), there would be no protection from the ignition interlock that prevents key removal if the vehicle is not in Park.SAFETY RISK:After exiting the vehicle, it could roll away.REMEDY:

Your BMW center will update the vehicle software.

I called the dealership and they are taking care of all recall items on my vehicle and providing me a loaner to drive. This site is awesome! I'm glad to be apart of it.
