'05 7-series





BMW is moving ahead with their scheduled facelift on the 7-Series, and we expect the freshened Bimmer to be at dealerships as early as next summer.

The exterior of BMW's flagship will now be reshaped into a softer, less controversial look: the most visible changes will be the all-new headlights and the wider and more curved twin-kidney grille. Revised bumpers front and rear will round the facelift.

Under the hood, we expect the 4.4-liter engine to be tweaked to 4.8 liters, reaching an output of nearly 400 horsepower. And rumors are circulating of a modified and higher-output 6.0-liter V-12.

BMW hopes that these changes, as well as others including modifications to the iDrive System, will breathe new life into their controversial flagship.

I think the facelifted front end (judging by how similar computer image looks to the spy shot) looks much much better. The "eyebvrow" indicator and the bulbous lights made the car into a pile of shit.

I think if they go with that design and rework the back I might actually like the car.

It looks ok. A Benz S Class looks better though IMO.

Agreed.
It actually doesn't induce the gag reflex when I look at the 7 now.....
Nice to hear about the HP increase though.

Wow.
BMW facelifted the 7 after only 2 years. They've never done that.
Guess BMW's finally realizing they've made a mistake and are undergoing damage control.

who thinks the same thing will happen to the new 5er?

The fact that it's a higher class G35 kinda of frightens me...
