According to the designer, that’s exactly what they’re trying to do actually. In one of the interviews I saw he likened the car to a luxury villa, and the top DRL/crystals are akin to a kitchenette or bar where guests drink and mingle, while the lower projectors are like a 2nd kitchen in the back of the house where food is actually prepared. I swear to god I’m not making this up.

I do like the car a lot actually, designer babble aside. Hopefully an M60 makes an appearance in Monterey this week.
Okay- well believe it or not- this actually helps me a little digesting the design. I truly feel though the i7 is the winner here- with the x7 morphing to fulfill the purpose. We can't "unsee" 2019-2022 pre LCI. Where as- the i7 had this look from inception.

But I appreciate you letting me know this- I need to seek out the video and watch it…
