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.

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I moved your question to the E66 forum where you can get help.

Not sure exactly if you're looking for parts or the whole unit. This is a good reference for you. Listing of all your parts. You either need the production month and year ( found on your drivers door tag)or the last seven digits of your Vin number. There is also a European site similar to this. But the website name escapes me at this point. This site also has the European spec vehicles in it. www.realoem.com
