I like the car too, as a whole. You can like a car without loving every design element. I am not thrilled with the grille/headlights, but I wasn't thrilled with the LCI enlarged grille either. I test drove an S class for a point of reference. IMHO the S class looks better, but when I was done and got back into my 2020 LCI, I was happy to be back in seats that fit me, with massage that didn't buzz, with intuitive controls, and crisper steering and throttle response. In other words a typical BMW-MB comparison. The 7 may be big but it is still a BMW. MB may have better more classic styling. In fact I think the S is gorgeous. But I vote for driving characteristics over styling.
