I have seen the car in a "closed-room-presentation".

If you see the real car, itīs very beautiful. All is new without the doors and the roof. The proportions are harmonious.


Best regards
Klaus

Horrendous and unspeakably like a Kia K900.

The leaked instagram photo looked nice. These look like trash.

I'll assume the dull white paint and bland rendering style/perspective is making it worse. Waiting for live photos....

So they decided to take a cold, robotic design and make it even colder and robotic-ier?

I can#t believe there are really people who thinks this facelift is an improvement (and not that improving the current, super dull 7 series would be hard).

Seriously, the latest BMW (but, to be honest, most German premiums) are so overloaded with non functional plastic gimmicks outside that it hurts; Fake vents, fake exhausts, fake grilles, name it, they have it; Plus, an overload of bulging creases and busy lines (here, at least Mercedes is a positive exception). They look like some ridiculous tuner cars often, a sad thing, given the subtle industrial elegance and functional design a German premium car once stood for. They used to be over engineered (in a positive, mechanical way) cars, now it's the hugest and most displays in a horrid , overdone design full of fake elements their owners would have ridiculed any Honda Civic tunerboy in NFS Underground times, and justifiably so;

I admit that I quite liked most Bangle BMWs (especially the 5 series and Z4), but even the less attractive ones like the 7 series had at least a design language, even if not to everyone's taste; This is just a mess; And comparing a ca. My. 2000 Audi to what they produce today, don't even get me started;
