yup they're here - ugly as they are:puke:

My dad knows the guy who owns Autohaus, he also owns Volvo Villa so he just puts all the cars there because Autohaus has no more room

I saw this guy pulling out of the Esso gas station on Younge and Steels in the new 7'er. The driver really looked like one of the intstructors from the BMW driver training i went to. it could be ! hehe...
I don't really like the looks of it though...

Didn't see one yet, but not really eager to anyways. haha. The car, for now just doesnt do anything for me. I guess it's just a matter of time when it grows on me.:)

I saw a black one on sat. night on Yonge and hwy7. Mr. Bangle has changed the entire tailight design that its lite pattern no longer has the BMW resemblance... :(
I'm sure i couldn't tell it's a bmw from its lite pattern if I wasn't informed about it at the introductry night of the new 7.

it is the ugliest bimmer i have ever seen.. It looks like a Ford..
Actually it's not that bad imo. Clear corners and rims is a MUST tho. See how much of a difference they made :idea:

the car is growing on me ever so SLOWLY......clears do make it look hella lot better. and maybe 19' would look nice too, if not 20s. the 760Li can probably kick a S55's ass in 0-100km/h. correct me if im wrong..

At first, I hated the way the new 7 looked. After a bit, it starts to grow on you.

i dont like it
i'll take an e38 slammed with 21" chrome rims and clears all around with angel eyes any day over the new e65

i dont care about bells and whistles honestly
i prefer handling, styling, and power

and i love how the e38's look especially done up

i saw one once with blacked out headlights and it looked sick!

the E38 looks low and long...especially in darker colours wit da sport pack. the new one looks just like a big barge, like the old S-class, especially form the front

it doesnt look so bad when you put clear corners on.

my thoughts exactly:)

the back though...:puke: maybe Alpina will create a design that involves removing the entire back and replacing it with something that looks good like a wide body kit

:eek:

its grown on me fully i mean we've had it here for a while now
slowly it grew on me and i saw one (dark blue with a light grey
interior) that was slammed to the floor on 19x11.5 at the rear
and 19x10 in the front deep dish completely mirror finish polished
(chrome like) MAE's

GODAMN! it looked good ... ok the trunk gets me sometimes
but its not that bad.. its fully grown on me.

i actaully think the rear looks better than the headligts on the car..:huh?:
i'm weird...
the trunklid is my biggest complaint.if it didn't stick out like that, i don't think it wound be THAT bad.

I don't even know if i wanna test drive one. You might have to read a manual before you can operate it. There is no substitute for good old fashion clutch and shifter.

I just think the whole design of bmw is going nowhere. I just think they are losing their sportiness.

true... but we're always so afraid of change...even if we'd like to think we aren't.

reading the owner's manual will porbably be like reading a big-ass novel.

I sat in one at the Detroit Auto show a couple of weekends ago. All I can say is it's probably the most advanced (technolgy) vehicle I've ever seen. Buttons galore. Even the rear passengers have tons of buttons to play with on the middle hand-rest that separates the left and right passenger. Also, there's a pseudo joystick/mouse for the driver to actuate with his/her right hand that has the ability to control pretty much everything.

Crazy. But as far as looks. It is growing on me. Slowly.
