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.

Anyone else have a "squeaky" drivers seat?

I've only got 30k on my 750i with Sport Seats, and everytime I accellerate, brake, or turn.....the seat bottom cushion squeaks every so slightly.

Not loud, but enough to make me wonder why, and how can I fix it?

Anyone ever tackle this problem with a good fix?

I Understand your pain, squeaking noises are a form of psychological torture in my book... I did notice that squeak only when I adjust my seat. It probably comes from the rubbing against the console.
Since your squaking is constant I'd suggest you find a non abrasive moisturizer such as silicone spray and find the contact surface against the console. Or even a paper towel placed into that groove (ghetto alert!).
Good luck with that!

I have a little on the left side of the bottom cushion where the plastic meets the leather; however I have new lower seat foam to replace so I think the issue will be solved when I change it out as the leather will regain its original shape.
