I agree... kidney grills are way too large on it. Looks nice on this inside though.

Then this thing about Alpina that always ticks me off... slap a couple of badges on, the same wheels since the stone age, and make some mild changes to the engine. And then they have the audacity to think they are a 'car manufacturer'.

damn they trying to make people get incouraged to work on their own cars by making it more and more harder to work in the engine...no room for anything...everything in the engine barely has room for the use of tools...but im sure if your buying a 7 series you wont be working on your own car.

Twin turbo and all it puts out is 507 hp / 516 tq.??? Come on it should be putting down something CRAZY like 800 rwhp and 850 lbs/ft.

Cars that big are to be admired in person. 7 series pics always look weird and out of proportion to me but in person they can be super badass.

I like that they smoothed out some of the hard lines from the previous iteration, but overall, I'm still not a fan. The e38 was the last 7 series that was attractive to me from a styling standpoint.

You guys gotta drive one. I never really cared much for luxury cars but damn, the new 7 perfect! The interior quality, new idrive, and gauge cluster, etc
