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.

The rear is tucked up way in the corner of the trunk above the wheels. You're going to. Have to move the box if it goes from one side to the other because the carpet/panels in the trunk have to get either taken out or bent while you reach and get the 3 nuts on the top hat. Defiantly a pain in the arse if you're doing it alone.

Air shocks in the rear???

Hey...

You sure you don't have the air in the rear? my 06 750LI I lowered the rear via INPA. ;-) There are no springs in the rear of mine.

Just though I would mention it...
