Quick fixes:

- Chrome trim on front bumper.
- Chrome trim on bootlid. (It didnt suit a thick trim)
- Hidden exhausts (I dont mind the exhausts on the 750i because they flow with the design, but regular tips look a little outta place.)

Much better. But you forgot to edit out those hideous chrome-plastic sidemarker thingies.

Not gonna lie, I still prefer the silver strip on the front (I hope that's not chrome...I don't think it is). The back looks better, and the exhaust should be hidden unless it uses the rectangular tips.

This is prolly the first time dark grey isn't one of my top two favorite colors for a particular BMW model.

Dark Graphite 750Li Sport with Radial Spoke 252

The Shadowline trim looks better in person than in photo. I personall prefer the bright trim.

Dark Graphite 750Li Sport with Multi spoke 235

I prefer these wheels with the bright trim, on on a light colored car.

The last photo, above, is my car, at the Welt. I'm probably much older that most others on this forum. My first bimmer was a '68 1600. I got it for my wife just before our first child was born. I've been with BMW for the past 40+ years. I first saw the Sophisto Gray at a BMW event in San Francisco in early March. The color and the Oyster with black was the most stunning car I had ever seen. Within a few days, my F02 was on order. Took delivery at the Welt on April 27th. This color is strikingly beautiful. I wouldn't be surprised if the toll takers on the Golden Gate Bridge let me cross for free! (uh huh...). With the black carpet the seats look as though they are floating.

Great color. Even better, FasTrak lets you cross for free! I take it you live north of the GGB.

Sophisto Grey colour

Did search for Sophisto Grey colour. Nice to see some good photos at last. I have a 530d GT on order in Australia, and have chosen this colour on two recommendations - (dealer in Australia & dealer in Switzerland) before seeing it myself. Could never even find any photos until this search revealed the 7 series in the colour. Both dealers said the Sophisto grey with ivory black interior was in their opinion the best looking choice. Thanks for posting these photos
