Pictures make this car look a lot better than it really is, it looks absolutely terrible in person.

It looks terrible in both. The short wheel base in M-Sport trim, on the other hand, is the tits.

First time in a while where I prefer the base spec over the M-Sport. M-Sport on the G11 looks off compared to the M-Sport of the F01 where it matched and fit the design of the car a lot better.

Damn, I would never own a sedan this large but I don't know how anyone can complain about anything. Any complaints are subjective to individual taste.

Like the styling or not, this is the 7 series BMW needs.

I saw one driving in the wild and I didn't hate it! I actually thought it looked worse in the still photos... The chrome can be a bit much tho...

In that picture, it is a bit overwhelming. It's hard to look at the rest of the car when there's chrome staring at you. With the exhaust already silver, there was no need for additional chrome trim in the exhaust area.

I agree. The car has big road presence when it's coming up from behind and it is definitely a BIG car. Those chrome 'hockey sticks' on the side (along with the door trim and other chrome bits) would look amazing matte black!! (Would have been awesome if BMW made those chrome parts the matte version of all of the colors offered)

Wow. This thing looks terrible. MB S550 is way better looking.

We just got our 1st and 2nd @ Global in Atlanta. I think, after a bit of deciding, it's a decent looking car... That being said, I think the tail end looks kinda like a 5GT...

In Germany the press are unanimous. It beats the S-Klasse.

Not surprising, Scott -- it's a beautiful car, and delivers exactly what BMW needed to deliver (more luxury / less sport), without sacrificing driving dynamics.

This car can be ordered with shadow line trim, like in the pic posted by Scott.
It's just a matter of taste and there are plenty of options!
Not yet available Individual + M Sport, the best combo on every BMW model
The Merc is way behind in terms of advanced tech
