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.

750li white smoke problem please help

Hi my name is kelvin from hong kong. i just got myself a 2005 E65 750li currently 120000km on clock. first, i spent last few months changing everything which include headlight, wheeletc etc. however, i have just noticed that the car start to acting up. driving along...no smoke, come to a stop and idle.... no smoke.....step on the gas and the car would puff smoke temporarily

therefore, i was wondering can this problem be fixed?or worth fixing it in the first place?

please let me know your thoughts?

Hi, Welcome to the fest. If it's like a bluish color smoke then its valve seals. Its about a 40 hour job. I would find myself a trust worthy Indy an have it done. As for pricing, here in the states we would expect to pay somewhere around $2500.00, or if your handy an real meticulous you can do this your self an save $2k.

Try those Ccv valves but almost 99% it's your your valve stem caps.....
Never overheated?? Low quality oil??
