I've posted mine and made lots of pics, it's somewhere in that thread about LED rings , need to dig through it. They are perfect and generate no errors, tested for many months now.

Don't get dvdinmotion, it's a rip off. Get yourself a $20 cable, download the software for free and code it in. It's literally a 5 minute job.

That's what I was thinking! These cars already do this overseas so surely it's a simple coding job...? I figured half you guys were watching movies already!
And what about all this 'rolling WiFi' i heard about...

Thanks rookie2008!

No I meant the fog lamps at the bottom not the angel eyes.

Anyone know the exact size/number for fogs?

Congratulations Big Marcus! Can't wait to see what wheels you put on. I have the same style 252 stock wheels that you do.

I am surprised to see full sets of Akebono sets advertised on tirerack. I spoke to Akebono as the are made close to where I live in Louisville, KY. They told me that they are not going to make rear pads. They sent me a free set of the EUR1409 Front pads. So I am a bit concerned if the rears listed here actually fit.

I test fitted my rear 22x11 on my buddies f01 and it only poked out about an inch. So I figured your 22x10.5 from your old car may fit

I don't remember the exact offsets from the F01 but I do remember them being waaaay off from the e65. I believe they would go inside allot more. And I hate that tucked in look.

Wait sanhonda, what wheels are you talking about? I thought VOSSEN stopped at 10.5 width...
Oh you meant different wheels.

You can play dvds up front now, but when you put the car into D it turns off. I agree with the poster who said to either buy the cable and code yourself or find someone to code the dvd in motion plus all the other stuff you want coded.

Congrats on the new 7. Its one of, if not the best color combination. Can't wait to see what you do as far as mods go!

If you still have them, just test fit it. I think it may work

Just confirmed... They won't. I talked to a shop buddy of mine who actually tried to do this exact swap. He said the F01 has a +39 rear offset whereas the e65 had a +24! Thus it would look like a 4x4!
Oh well... I will figure out something nice.

Thanks my man!!! I agree on the color/combo and that certainly helped in the purchase.
