The BMW E65 is the bod identification for the 4th genesis 7 Serial lifesize lavishness saloon produced by BMW. The E65 was the low BMW figure serial to use unlike frame numbers for its various dissimilar variants such as the E66/E67/E68, which formed the Long-Wheelbase, BMW Mellow Surety and the BMW H 7 models severally.

2002 Bmw 740D

Introduced at the Frankfurt Automobile Shew in 2001 aboard the BMW E53 X5 4.6is, the BMW E65 7 Serial replaced the BMW 7 Serial (E38) subsequently output of that manakin complete in July 2001. In club to create the E65 7 Serial and otc succeeding models the BMW implant at Dingolfing was retooled at a toll of some €500,000,000.

Upon dismission the new 7 Serial was met with shrewd critique for its controversial looks besides as the infuse acquisition sheer presented by the new iDrive organization. So unimpressed was the commercialise with the new car that sales of left E38 inventory increased markedly later the found. Scorn the initial timber problems and client colic the E65 7 Serial became the best-selling genesis of this life-sized opulence saloon, advance enhanced by a lift in 2006.

Later a 7 yr output run the BMW E65 was replaced by the BMW 7 Serial (F01) in belated 2008.

Initial release

Evolution for the BMW E65 7 Serial began in former 1996, and output specifications were flash-frozen in January 1999. The pattern of the BMW E65 7 Serial was patented 16 November 2000; growth concluded in mid-2001. The car was beginning launched in Europe 17 November 2001 so appeared in US and over-the-counter markets in the (northerly) bounce of 2002. Former BMW E65 7 Serial models had many problems principally due to the functionality of the iDrive organisation and the associated electronics systems. Thusly, BMW repurchased a real sum of 2002-03 7 Serial cars in the U.S., and BMW of Northwards America besides lengthy the mill warrant on 2002-03 BMW E65 7 Serial models from the 4-Year/50,000-Mile (80,000 km) reportage to the 6-Year/100,000-Mile (160,000 km) mill warrant.

Exterior design

Below the management of Chris Novelty, BMW’s Pattern Honcho at the clock, the arriver of the BMW E65 7 Serial heralded a new styling era for BMW. The conception of the new car contrasted dramatically with the styling on the BMW E38 7 Serial. The BMW E65 7 Serial’ two-level backside styling with branch arse fenders for a “bustle-back” kicking lid was mockingly known as the “Novelty Target” by critics. In fact, van Hooydonk’s archetype vignette in 1998 for the BMW E65 was lots more of a stem silky fastback, but the terminal E65 visibility was toned kill well to a more established three-box saloon. Gaud was wide criticised for the basal loss of the styling from the BMW E38 7 Serial. He was yet supported by the BMW directorate, who cherished to run BMW’s simulacrum into the hereafter. Dan Neil of The Los Angeles Multiplication named the new 7-series one of the ’50 Pip Cars ever’, but Gewgaw argued that BMW’s naturalized excogitation lyric was dog-tired. Contempt the initially misfortunate populace receipt of the two-level behind, the figure was posterior integrated by Mercedes-Benz into the innovation of the W221 multiplication S-Class in 2006 and besides by Hyundai in the fourth-generation Azera.

Dimensionally the E65 7 Serial 45mm yearner, 38mm wider and 60mm taller than the E38. The wheelbase was increased by 60mm ended the extroverted simulation. Contempt these increased dimensions the E65 7 Serial is sole 15 kg heavier than the E38.

Interior design

The inside of the BMW E65 7 Serial features a generous number of true forest reduce & was redesigned to speak both the driver and rider, dissimilar the traditional driver-focussed board in the BMW E38 7 Serial. BMW remote the traditional soothe mounted pitch chooser replacement it with a steering-column mounted shuck, in favor of two cup holders. The seating accommodation controls were affected from their traditional situation unofficially of the arse foot to the indoors of the embossed key solace, which various reviewers complained almost the unnecessarily complicated nature of the controls. Desquamation key and coarse-textured materials are a wellspring attested trouble, so BMW addressed this publication by victimization distillery higher timbre rouge in the LCI exemplar.

Compared to the extroverted E38 simulation, the E65 7 Serial has more berm board in the movement and the ass, spell clearance in the bottom has been increased for greater solace.


The BMW E65 7 Serial was the almost technically modern yield fomite BMW had always produced at the metre. As the flagship modeling, it introduced a multitude of new technologies that were finally carried terminated to the future propagation of BMW’s. The E65 7 Serial introduced a figure of new technologies such as:

  • Valvetronic locomotive restraint (Varying valve rhytidectomy replaced accelerator butterflies for convention functional weather for added reception, efficiency and index).
  • Man debut of Fighting Roller Stabilisation (ARS) participating Anti-roll bars on a saloon (choice designations: Dynamical Ride, Adaptative Cause). ARS is a revolutionist organization that most entirely eliminates consistency cast when cornering. It employs fighting anti-roll bars which use a hydraulic servomechanical in the halfway to actively countermine soundbox cast. This results in increased comforter for passengers, and when linked with Electronic Muffler Control-Continuous (EDC-C) it raises consolation levels to new high.
  • Ego levelling air reprieve on back axle for increased solace (optional)
  • Electronic Muffler Control-Continuous (EDC-C)
  • Unveiling of two fiber opthalmic bus systems, Well-nigh Bus (Media Oriented Organisation Exaltation) and “Byteflight” (prophylactic systems bus). These busses mesh at 22.5Mbps and 10Mbps severally.
  • The low unveiling of the consecrate ‘Body-Controller Domain Mesh’ K-CAN bus organization operational at 100kbps, This replaced the slower (9.6kbps) I,K and P-Busses victimized on late vehicles.
  • The low launching of BMW’s radical iDrive organisation, the commencement full incorporated serial yield fomite systems control.
  • Humans’s get-go boundlessly varying ingestion multiplex.
  • Humanity foundation of electronic adaptative headlamp engineering.
  • Reality’s offset 6-speed automatonlike transmittal in a saloon.
  • Optional Reflexive Balmy End arrangement minimized the power needed to finis the doors, and would all end them if improperly shut. This organization besides prolonged to the bole lid, but dissimilar the doorway organization was measure on all models.
  • Electromechanical emergency. Not but could this arrangement utilize the emergency in stop-and-go dealings situations to cut boredom, but it could too mechanically enforce the emergency afterwards the firing was switched off.
  • Beginning BMW with DVD-based GPS Self-propelled piloting scheme.
  • Get-go BMW to boast Bi-Xenon (HID) headlights.
  • Commencement BMW to sport ‘Push-Button-Start’. The orthogonal key-fob was inserted into a slot following to the wheel and the driver would button a clit to first the locomotive. This method of start the car would be the predecessor for all futurity BMW models.
  • Radiolocation based Participating Sail Ascendance (ACC).
  • iDrive

    The BMW E65 7 Serial introduced the iDrive ascendancy conception. The arrangement was reinforced on ironware exchangeable to the MKIV scheme put-upon by BMW in the former 90’s but featured a stigma new port and cardinal command thickening. Many of the functions such as mood, sailing, arse warming, telephone and car settings were merged into a unity organisation allowing centralized command of those functions. iDrive was nicknamed “I Don’t Recognize Campaign” because of the infuse erudition bend and complicated fare structures, with roughly sources claiming that it would takings various hours to get companion with the organization. Complaints ranged from the numeral of stairs mandatory to over mere tasks such as selecting a tuner oftenness to acquiring “befuddled” in the rich card organization. iDrive saw respective updates during the product run to reference complaints elevated by owners. The kickoff genesis of the organization relied on CD media for map information. In 2003 BMW updated the ironware to learn DVD media, added a considerably quicker c.p.u. and the power to showing maps in panoramic panorama. Too added in 2003 were a ‘Fare’ and ‘Customisable’ release under the ascendence node. This was through to reference the complaints of ‘acquiring baffled’ in the menus. The finish major update to the arrangement came with the LCI modeling in 2005 which added buttons to the wireless (ASK whole) that enabled skipping tracks or tuner stations besides as a modality clitoris to commute operational modes. A bigger, brighter expose was added and quicker, more modern seafaring ironware was introduced. The organisation too gained the capacity to restraint a MP3 open CD Auto-changer. The port was aerodynamic to resemble the iDrive CCC organization. Although it may look exchangeable in use to the CCC iDrive (introduced in the BMW E60 5 Serial and BMW E63/64 6 Serial), the iDrive scheme in the E65/66 is unparalleled to just that modelling. The organization started a vogue and tod almost car manufacturers go in-car systems reinforced some a primal restraint boss (Audi Multi Media Port, Mercedes-Benz Comand APS etcetera), an estimate commencement brought to consumers by BMW in the E65 7 Serial.


    Contingent the land of sale the E65 7 Serial came with a sort of Received Equipment. All markets had iDrive as received, although Seafaring was optional in sealed markets. Mood command was stock, although two-fold district clime ascendancy was offered as an choice. Seats options ranged ‘tween canonic, play and quilt seating. The introductory seating admit 14-way galvanic modification (12-way for rider) and 4-way lumbar modification. Comfortableness seating admit 20-way galvanising allowance, 4-way lumbar fitting, two small-arm articulate back-rests, adjustable cervix documentation, electrical headrests and retentivity options uncommitted on both driver and rider sides. The dissimilar bottom variations collectively options for heat, chilling and massaging made for a bewildering turn of configurable options.

    Otc optional equipment included TV receipt (digital TV in rhytidoplasty models), Dynamical Xe headlamps, Perpendicular position and arse galvanizing sun blinds, Figurehead and ass het or ventilated seating, Ease galvanising arse seating with store (featuring 18-way fitting as apposed to 20-way at the forepart), Arse call, Refrigerated aplomb box, Reprint bum air conditioning, Behind buns amusement with furcate LCD and iDrive accountant, this gave arse passengers the command of the next amusement features: 6 platter DVD multi-changer, 6 disk CD multi-changer (or iPod in rhytidoplasty models), TV, DAB Wireless, Bluetooth Telephone and Planet Pilotage.

    About European models in colder climates had the alternative of a Webasto parking hummer, which allows the fomite to be warmed up and pre-heated by substance of the remote ahead the fomite is started, this has the vantage of de-icing the fomite and qualification the upcountry more sufferable in coldness conditions. Also in hotter climates it is potential to remotely first the locomotive for the determination of activation the air conditioning to sang-froid the national of the fomite ahead the fomite is entered.

    Long-Wheelbase 7 Series (E66)

    Long-Wheelbase versions of the BMW E65 7 Serial were introduced ultimately of 2002. Long-Wheelbase models solitary featured a yearner eubstance which meant additional legroom in the back seating.

Boilersuit the restyled forepart served to dedicate the car a more flashy show. In the ass, the proboscis lid styling was subtly enhanced with the bole discharge clit beingness affected concealed and a diluent, more refined look chromium-plate disrobe aerodynamic into the re-designed lights.
