Looks great!

They have a proper bumper coming soon. Either a M-sport, or rumored M version is coming soon...notice the bulge in the hood.

Thats the best looking 7 ive seen. Looks good from all sides.

Can't get used to the super huge kidney grills though. Looking our my window I much prefer the E90 3 series grille which I think is better then the 3 coupe and E90 facelift model. Hope the new 3 does not have such a huge grill.

i keep seeing that m6 bumper plastered on the f01 and it just doesn't work.

I would agree - you can't put M stuff on everything. An M is the essence of the entire car - engine, suspension, powertrain, dynamics.

Again - the F01/F02 is not an M car - simply a luxury sports sedan. If you want to drive an M - it's an entirely different experience.....

It definitely looks photoshopped to me. If you look at the 4th pic, you can see the red reflectors on the bottom of the rear bumper. The looks at the rear shot, and they are blacked out. Hmmmm.

Original picture set, it looks bloody gorgeous! I think the understated elegance might be one of the big things missing from modern BMWs.

I mean, just look at it! No chrome bits and it looks freaking excellent!

Really nice work

Wait, what's this about M equipment?

I was merely referring to the aesthetic improvements made by having blacked-out faux diffuser pieces as opposed to body-colored ones.

Sorry - maybe my message wasn't clear...
I was agreeing with your post about the M6 bumper and how just adding the bumper doesnt fit the design language....

soooo - putting an M bumper doesnt do much good for me - unless it's the real thing...

Nice, but why did you leave the grilles alone?
