Thinking about buying a 7?

I'm in the mood to buy a new car. I really love look of the 7 series. I'm probably going to buy a 2002-2005 E65 since my wife won't let me go over 12k. The only thing that is stopping me from buying one is. I heard a lot of bad reviews about the first batch of the 7's. With them having a lot of problems with leaking, transmission going out, etc.
I read a few posts on the forums, and it seems that everyone love's their 7's. Can some of you enlighten me on common problems with the 7 series?

Thanks

-J

At the year you looking at an the amount you want to spend, unless you are mechanically incline or don't mind spending $$ then I say STAY AWAY.
