I have always browsed bimmerfest and read so many threads. I just got rid of my Benz S500, and replaced it with a 2003 BMW 745li - 100K miles :D.
It had 2 owners - First one had it for 4 years - second owner drove it for pleasure and kept it garaged for over 10 years.
So after reading every possible thread I could find on the mostly well documented problems of E65 gearboxes - I have found myself pretty much accepting that I need to replace my gearbox / transmission (for search purposes used both terms)
Many of the threads on this subject outline similar...

I was trying to connect a freeview box that are cheaply available from eBay nowadays. My E66 has a Anologue TV Tuner so I was trying to hook a freeview box to it. What I can't figure is what connector use.
The TV antenna has a connector, I've ordered a few cable converters such as SMA, SMB and...
Ive seen a 2006 E65 boot lid for sale on ebay and its the same colour as my 2003 model and would lke to give my car the face lift look.
