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.

Enter the last 7 digits of your VIN into: https://www.bmwvin.com/, so find out its build specs.

The fastest way to find out is look at the doorhandles. You'll have a chrome strip showing which is the contact for your hand. So it will open if the proximity key is close by.

If your remote has a replaceable battery, you have Comfort Access.

Like George said,

The easiest way is to look at the back of your key fob..
-If there is a circular cutout towards the top of the fob, you have comfort access.
