Kidneys too big in the front.

Rear is Lexus LS.

Overall looks very Japanese, very Japanese I really think so.

I agree. I kept looking and trying to figure out just what they were trying to camouflage, or if the tape was for something else. It draws way more attention to the car.

Most people wouldn't even pay any attention to the car without it, they'd just think it was just another silver BMW.

That car has some very nice lines but it does look a little funky in pictures. But I'm sure, like many other BMWs, that it would look better in person than in pictures.

haha. in all seriousness i'd bet five bucks that the random tape lines on the hood become real ones in the eventual facelift.

the usual, nothing special there ... they always add more lines to pre face lift models and call it totally new ... however am sure the face lifted model is gonna be perfect (not that it's not perfect now )

I'm tired of hearing this. Not directing this to everyone, but I bet over half of the people that make this comment (perhaps you too) can't even elaborate on what they're saying and what looking "japanese" means.

Glad to see someone finally grabbed some photos of it in the US!

Having seen the car in real life without camo I can honestly say it is a beautiful car. It looks much better in person. There are lots of differences between it and the LS; in all honesty the rear is much stronger looking than the LS.
The strong shoulder line crease gives the car a much different look than anything else out there now. I love the wheels on the 750.

Here is a link to some flickr photos of the car in real life without camo that I took. (The link only goes to flickr).

it also meant Japanese copied European. the fact is the new 7 rear looks like Lexus LS but the current LS rear styling was from the previous 7 imo.
