So they've finally done it... made the kidneys big enough to make it look completely devoid of identity. Congratulations BMW, on your new Kia.

^^ They've done better, I'll give them that. But I doubt it'll win any beauty awards either.

I can't believe the same company that can create such magnificent driving machines have such a tard in their design department.

I think If they weren't respected for the fact that they can create great cars they would probably be below Kia right now

diesel will be here soon.
expect fall for the 335d and x5d. early next year is the 5 series diesel and i think the x3 and 1 series. not sure about the x6, 6, or 7.

exterior of the new 7....ugly. grill needs to be redesigned, headlights need to be moved and designed different to match the grill size and location. lower grill needs to look like it's not braces but an actual design that flows with the body (not ugly). back does look like a lexus but isn't as bad as the front.

interior does looks very nice. i'm assuming that the long wheel base version since all the room but it does look comfortable and luxurious.

honestly, it looks like they ran out of ideas. It looks more or less the same as the E60. I don't like it, but I don't hate it. So that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Even though it looks better than bangle butt, I hate the fact the the rear looks like a Lexus and doesn't have it's own unique appearance.

Little too conservative for my liking.

Seems Merc outdesigning BMW lately has become more common place . . . . . .
