If they put the iX headlights on the new 7er, I think it would appeal to a lot more people and improve the aesthetics a lot in the more conventional and conservative way. The split headlight design just doesn't do it for me.

This looks like a car a Chinese brand would release to compete with BMW.

Like all new BMW designs.. People will complain and be like it doesn't look as good as the last...

But in the end, it's always a better car than what it replaces, and the sales will speak volumes.

Like the ugly G80, this will grow on people and will look much better in person.

Agreed. Even just removing the upper drls and moving the hood line down to where it normally would be improves the look a ton.

Still remember they had these in the showrooms.



I was convinced that there was nothing they could further improve on the design. I guess the guys of BMW design realised that also and ditched "natural beauty" and went for more ornamentation and conflicting lines since.

Thumbnail literally looked like an X7. This car is so chunky and sits up so high.

They could have done without the bottom lights. They did it in a Rolls Royce, they could have made it happen here. For me the bottom
of the split kills

Back when it was just renderings and leaked pics, I really thought this was going to be the non m sport line and then there would be a different m sport that would look better. I was wrong…

It, like most new BMWs, screams "look at me". It's a reflection of our current society and will thus sell. Sad.

The front end looks like 2 cars glued on top of one another—-an absolutely hideous car. Unreal 😂

I think that looks fantastic. In a segment where blandness is rampant Iím glad to see BMW building something that makes a statement. It looks futuristic, aggressive, and expensive. Itís almost menacing. In fact if you replaced the bmw grill with a Rolls Royce grill it would totally fit as a Rolls. Someone with Photoshop skills should try it. It absolutely blows Benz, Audi, and Tesla away, inside and out. If I was in the market for a $140k ultra luxury sedan, this would be it.
