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.

Suspension replacement


I have got a vibration at 60mph, and a severe juddering when braking from high speeds.

I have replaced the front brake pads and discs, rear pads (were due) the tension struts, wishbones and swing support links (one was identified during an MOT as being worn)

the vibration is just as bad, I have also swapped the spare with both front wheels to see if that caused it, and have also had the wheels balanced and checked and are all ok all round.

I checked the discs for run out with a DTI when I replaced them, no problem with them.

There isnt a lot left to replace, any ideas what it could be?

one more strange thing, its happened twice now. Doing about 90mph, the car starts shaking, like a flat tyre, so badly that I have taken it as an emergency on the motorway and pulled over, but once I start the car and drive away, its back to normal. Only thing I can think that might cause that is the car self cleaning the handbrake
