Damn that camo does such a ridiculously good job of masking the lines that it's unreal. I dunno. I'm not going to assume anything until I see those final bits of covering taken off.

Last one looks a lil better^

The headlights look menacing, even under the camo.

Not like old days. Pedestrains beware.

The front bumper also looks like an afterthought. I was one of the few who loves the large lower dual air intakes that were on the CS. This just looks bland. C'mon BMW, pull through for me.

Hopefully those camo strips cover up some of the flaring.

I hate the front of the S-class because it's so bland and doesnt look like a new gen model! The rear lights are also a joke but dont look AS bad as pics. The only time I like the new S-class is in AMG trim, but even still I prefer this new 7 series...and yeah the S wheel arches are a joke lol.
both you are so right, said everything I would've had to type

Pisses me off when pedasstrians just walk out into the street or cross somewhere without looking or making sure the coast is clear. I always say, they shouldn't trust drivers so much, because there are a lot of people that might not be paying attention to them and hit them

I think its going in the right direction. Its going to be bad ass. Dont forget its not suppose to look aggressive.. Its a big body luxury car. The side is like the s class, but without the ugly fenders.. I think its going to be amazing. My dad is going to get it.. I need to see a better pic though .. I think its pimp ! They designed the concept cs .. Do you think they going to mess up on the 7 series? When they are gettin even more popular now days. People buying more 750 and 760's then benz' i think...

dumb ass laws i swear. Retards in london dont drive that well thats the problem . When i went to england i had to cross street few times.. Dude people literally try to kill you crossing street. They dont slow down.. They have very very bad road rage. Its crazy out there. The drivers there drive to crazy thats the problem.. Plus they have these big things on those sillly skinny streets and they dont learn to drive cause their driving school there sucks or something


p..s. love the fin ! and the rear shot. Its going to top s550

1) All BMWs past and present have looked aggressive, barring the pre-facelift current 7 series. This one should still maintain a degree of aggression, but it should be done so in the right way. Cheesy exhaust tips aren't the best way to do this, but as long as they're at least real then I don't mind too much.
2) The absense of any defined lines is what we're all complaining about (well not all of us apparently). The break in the character line also looks surprisingly left out (or severely diminished).
3) BMW managed to mess up back in 2002. No company is without their mistakes.
4) As nice as the current 7ers are right now, the S-Class trumps it in all the categories that matter most in this market segment, namely luxury and comfort. I don't think people are buying more 7's than S's atm. Benz has managed to dominate the upper ends of the car range while BMW tends to reign in the smaller car segments.

Anyway here's a quick fix for the front. Coincidentally I made it the same number of slats in the grille to match spypics! Also, the shape is much more like the spyshots.

It looks pretty similar to the camo'd F01...unfortunately.

Pics of a black car. Looks great! And it seems like the exhaust tips on the light colored car were fake.

I dont think they were fake, it must've been the 750i and this is the 730i version.
