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.

High Cost of Ownership, High Cost of Ownership. Stay away unless you have $$$ to spend. Mechanically handy does not mean you could also work on a vehicle like this. They are quite complicated. Stick with the Chrysler. I sold my 2004 a few months ago. Beautiful car and really nothing went wrong with it, besides the CD 2X (expensive to fix) $1,000 (rediculous) and the tranny issue (was real lucky). Car is still in good shape (as it is a second car for new owners) and not driven that much. I was not willing to play the slots if/when something went wrong with the car, so it was sold. I do miss the car, but no vehicle is worth the headache as these cars are or could be. Although some people have had good luck with high milaege. You never know. That $$$ was the down payment for a new truck 7 year/125K $0 deductible bumper to bumper truck. Payment $350 month and in 5 years I will have my $20K back when I trade it in. Good Luck.
