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.

Much thanks for the rear entertainment retrofit link. I'm helping a friend and that guide is good as gold.

Thanks a ton paper- this sticky led me to samadkins29 and his abs module diagnosis and repair. Saved me from going down the wrong path (had erroneously concluded the Gateway Module was the issue), and successfully pulled the module and had it repaired by Module Masters. The car has run perfectly in the 3 weeks since I re-installed it.
