Thumbs up Gorgeous photo session with the 2009 F01 7-series

Gorgeous photo session with the 2009 7-series. The dark photos accentuate perfectly some of the most distinguishing lines of the car. Although it goes without saying, the interior is gorgeous!

Very nice. BMW seems to follow Infiniti's design cue on the hood with two rises on the side and a big valley in the middle. Less pronounced of course.

Nice pics............but............

Dark photos do nothing but hide that this design is amorphous and unappealing to say the least.

It's no different than being with someone who says "turn down the lights" just as you are about to get a close up look.

Let's get real- (and yes I've spent time behind the wheel of the F01)the new 7er is no looker in the sense of previous 7's. It's big and conservative with a lot of power.........but......it doesn't really stand out and is overly conservative. By contrast the E65/66 was considered too austere and obnoxious for its time if you can believe that......

What would be a perfect balance? Well the Concept CS was a good start but the "beancounters" in Munich who started with "Panke" and have moved on to the current "Norbert" have seen fit to kill that off.......... But oh, let's make a wild and toyish X5M and X6M as that's what the Russians want and a few HP SUV crazy Yankees and we'll call it a BMW- is that really so much better??!!

Truly it is sad what BMW is up to these days. From someone who forked over thousands just to get into the E39 540i 6-speed and then forked over a King's ransom to get into the almighty E46 M3 (my 2 cents)........Someone in Munich needs a serious E46CSL shoved up their arse to remind them that this is supposed to be the "Ultimate Driving Machine"..... and not the "Ultimate we'll make it whatever "you" (insert any country) want it to be Machine."...........

Reminds me of a saying a car enthusiast told me recently at Bimmerfest-

"What's the difference between a prostitute and a BMW?"

I said, "Uh, I really don't know"

He said, "Nothing- they both will do anything for the right amount of money."

Postscript........one glimmer of hope- Auto und Sport has just released images (okay illustrations) of the 2012 3er and it is GORGEOUS! So judging by the this and the new Z4 perhaps there is some life left in the bowels of Munich after all...

Sorry mate, but you got that wrong.

The 750's hood does NOT have a valley in the middle, quite the opposite. It is raised in the middle. Have a look at some other pictures that show the car in a bit more light and you'll see

It does actually, and as the poster says, not as pronounced as the red car in the picture.

The F01 hood from its centre point is convex until you get closer to the fender then it rises gently before sharply following off to meet the fenders. I suppose in reality it does create a valley effect, albeit a small one.

Like I said I like the new 7 and I saw one in person on the 405 on Monday but unfortunately did not have a camera on me.

You are correct.

I didn't have much time when I did my last post.

So I should add the following to my own post:

The hood contours of the cars do not look at all the same. The infinity has a far more pronounced valley, the fenders go right up to where they peak and then drop into the valley for the actual hood. The 750's fenders turn into the hood, then raise up (part of the hood not the fender) an ever so slightly turn down into a very very mild valley (if you can call it that).
