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.

Japanese spec radio frequency conversion

I just bought a beautiful 735i but the radio frequency is in different range at my country. I read some forums here for the conversion( by holding down the 'Menu' button for ten seconds etc). The only problem for my car is I don't have a 'Menu' button. Can someone kind enough to share your thought. Thank you Bimmerfest.

If you are referring to the AM/FM frequency, you will need to have your ASK recoded.

There is an Idrive Service Menu which requires you to be at the Menu screen, then press down the knob for 6 seconds, release, then 3 turns rights, 3 turns left, 1 turn right, 1 turn left, 1 turn right, press down knob once. But I've only seen the ability to turn on / off the TV tuner diversity function. Nothing about radio frequency.
