I guarantee most of the demographic buying this car would love the chrome and hate the matte black/carbon fiber stuff some of you are talking about. I have a 335i and I think the matte black/carbon look really completes the car, just like the chrome accents IMO complete the look of the 7.

You guys forget that people like us that Mod our cars are a minority. People who drive the 7 series are usually 40+ year old executives, doctors, business owners who want a nice luxurious car. Theyre not trying to make it look like a 20 yr old is driving it
Yeah and it's also the M-sport version of the car not the standard 7 series that your average demographic type buyers purchase. People who want just luxury get the individual or the standard 7er. People who want a sporty 7 get the M-sport or Alpina which shouldn't be slathered in chrome IMO.
