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.

Back in an E65 - might find my older posts regarding WinKFP and Transmission issues that date back a few years on my old 745i. Good to be back had an E38 before this that was sadly written off by an idiot. Keen to get back into the swing of things - thankfully got INPA and my old BMW software still around and working.

I got this Beautiful car in June 2018. I had a 745li back in 2007 and I loved it so I though I would get a 2006 750li I have done a lot to it to make it mine. the most recent thing is make the aux option available on the MMI then hooked up the aux to a Bluetooth adapter and it sounds great! Hope to learn a lot on here.

Nice.

I like the look of 22" wheels. The photo of my car above had 22's but I couldn't deal with bottoming out especially with rear passengers so I have since "upgraded" to 20" wheels. No regrets. Love the car MUCH more. It drives so much more smoothly.

I'd like to do the aux upgrade too but I don't have the time and too many other higher priorities.

I put away my 2007 730i for the winter and let me tell you that it's been quite the challenge keeping all the snow away that we have received this winter but soon it must be over in a month or two it will be out on the road again. I've driven a 2000 passat 1.8T during these months and man oh man it makes you appreciate the 7er and I cant wait to start it up again when I get it road ready again.

Mein Auto:
Had this '08 730D for a few weeks now - the paintwork felt like sandpaper, I think it's just had the odd wash over her 11 years but after 10 hours of cleaning, clay-barring and polishing, I think she is looking good .

Got a fair few stone chips in the bonnet but they are being dealt with over the coming days.

Interior has not been detailed yet but it will be. Back seats do not look sat in TBH.

Engine bay has just been cleaned so I'll add a picture of that tomorrow.

All in all I am loving this thing - even though it is a big car, it drives effortlessly.

Cheers

Al







Added engine bay pic after a foam wash.

Later this week will be the headlights being sanded down and polished. I'll then apply a protective film.
