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.

Yeah thats what we did with a 2007 Audi Q7 we had. It was a lemon had them return the car and traded it for an Escalade ESV. I just don't think I could handle finding another car... and plus im in love with this one. just can't believe this entire situation. The car was in better shape when I dropped it off than when I picked it up...

Just an update car was dropped off this morning the dealer gave a 2014 fully loaded XTS which is a pretty cool ride. The dealer is taking care of everything supposedly and they are keeping the car two extra days after completion to ensure everything is fully operational and ready to go!

I'm glad it's all working out buddy! For some reason, my PM isn't going through. I'll just post it here

The license plate LEDs are literally one of the easiest mods you could do to your 7. And it really makes the car look newer. They are just slightly blue though. If you're okay with that, you won't be disappointed.

Pop off the cover with a flathead screwdriver, pull out the old bulb and put in the new one on each side of course.

Here are the exact ones I have: http://www.umnitza.com/umnitza-ion-l...v4-p-1337.html

Thanks bro! I'm ordering the first set today and will try them on my barbera red and if I like them i'll order a pair for the monaco blue as well... I feel like they will look beter on the blue given they have that hue.

Are the Festoon (36-42 mm) the ones to select?

You are experiencing bad service! My SA updates me daily. I have his cell phone number. If I don't answer his call he leaves me a voice mail and then sends an email. There is no excuse to hold a damn car for a week.

Have they given you a loaner?

No update since ive dropped it off. I called and left a vm for the SA. They gave us the fully loaded 2014 Cadillac XTS which is good but since im 18 I cant drive it so im driving our 750I and my moms driving the XTS. It's still an inconvenience. Next week they will have had the car at their shop the same amount of time ive owned it lol. A month driving and a month in the shop.

They found what was wrong finally, Hydrolic line to the trunk needs to be replaced, Driver door actuator has to be replaced as well as the right rear door actuator and they are trying to figure out the seat. I assume they will replace the motor. The dealership thankfully is covering everything. They said depending on parts I will have the car back on Friday... So what i hear when they say that is that I wont have it until Monday lol
