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.

Here is something to look at.

Here is the vin decoder app.

And when you need parts use, this to find them.

The statement I'm about to make, may not be true. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. But from all the years I've been involved with BMW. I don't remember them making an E65/E66 with the carbon fiber roof. I would almost bet you that some custom shop did that after-the-fact. Also I don't believe BMW would put carbon fiber emblems on the vehicle. Due to the fact that the emblem is their trademark and the blue color is important to that.

There are a lot of companies selling these emblems. I would almost bet you that this is what happened. Here is an example.

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...n+fiber+badges

To prove me wrong on the roof. Enter the Vin number into the site I gave you. This will tell you exactly what was on the car when it was built.

I sure hope I'm wrong. Either way the car looks very sharp. Since you're new to this forum, start reading everything you can about your car.

Rick.

Roof and emblems are definitely not original.

Looks like you have the sport package and convenience package. Pics of the inside will help as well.

Inserting your vin onto the website is definitely the easiest way.

Something about the window trim is bugging me. Check that too to see if it is wrapped or plasti dipped.

Good call man. Definitely looks wrapped.

Looks like the sport package is a no.

I didn't even think twice about that since it is a 2008.

Does your steering wheel have four spokes, or three?

The trim on outside looks sport.
#1 There isn't any chrome trim on bumper f/r impact strips
#2 there isn't a chrome strip above the rear licence plate, it's factory painted.
#3 it has shadow line trim around windows. It may appear matte on a cold morning caused by morning dew. Looks like an AM picture to me.

You guys need to brush up on your detective skills, LOL.

Yup, it's a 750li sport with lots of carbon wrap and third party badges. The badge on the steering wheel is a stick on. All good if you're into that stuff.
