Wow, tons of luxury in those photos!

Thanks for sharing, your car is the only one pre-LCI, right? Looks great

While I think the new 7 series looks great, I simply don't think that the M sport bumper looks good. It has weird proportions, especially due to these fangs, which IMO arent executed well and misplaced, and the same bumper design is featured on the Active Tourer M sport!

If you look at the front end of the M sport 7, due to the weird bumper and fangs, and the large kidneys, the 7 looks pretty "piggy", frankly, like a pig.

Still like the bumper more than the standard or excellence bumper, these bumpers are waaay too high, I dont expect a hellaflush bodykit, but the standard bumper seems too high, as if it was meant for an SUV.

I just wish that the bumper is updated with the m performance diesel model.

So great to see how the car has grown! Looks great next to the E38 series.

Last gen looks better IMO, don't like this headlight touching grill look. Doesn't suite a luxury oriented 7

Something about that E38. All of the others look intimidated by the G11 but the E38 stands quite well next to it.

The 750iL E38 still holds a special place in my heart. Too bad it proved to be a money pit many times over.

E38 is without doubt a classic lookin' Bimmer...


... however.. F01 LCI has overtaken it in styling terms for me... smart as an E38 yet so much more dynamic.

Your E65 is still alive!? Jk. That thing was an oil consuming oil leaking son of a gun. The new 7 looks super obtuse lol.

I'm in the F01 camp. The design just looks a lot more put together especially the rear with M-Sport.
