Lightbulb F01 BMW 7 Series LCI (Facelift) Continues Testing

F01 BMW 7 Series LCI (Facelift) Continues Testing

The F01 7-series is due for a facelift and the prototypes continue to undergo public testing.

Expect the F01 7-series LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) to be unveiled next Spring. The biggest changes to be seen will be to the front fascia. Full LED headlights will come to the 7 series for the first time. Underneath the camouflage tape, the bumper directly underneath the headlights will transition to the lower part of the kidney grilles with a more pronounced 'swoop' line (not pictured in render). The lower bumper will take on the attractive look of the BMW Concept 7 Active Hybrid from 2008.

The Kidney grilles will receive a thicker and more pronounced grille surround and thicker angled kidney grille bars found on some 6 series and 5 series models. The side mirrors will incorporate side indicator lights. This particular model also shows a new wheel design for the 7-series.

The interior does not show too many changes. What we see is that the trim surrounding the navigation screen has been updated slightly.

With the LCI, a 750d and 750dLi is said to be receiving BMW's new Tri-Turbo 6 cylinder diesel as the BMW 750d and BMW 750dLi. BMW's 8 speed automatic transmission will also be making its debut in the 7-series.

Expect the 7 series LCI to debut sometime in Spring 2012.

i know right. the f30 had such high hopes and i think the interior will turn lots of people off ... this is just so fluid and the f30 looks so "pieced" together

Let's wait for the official F30 pics. It may look better than you think now.

Looks like it will be getting the new B&O sound system.

There is a metal tweeter grill on the driver side.
