It doesn't get much uglier than this folks.l...the back end looks like the discontinued Dodge Stratus/Plymouth Breeze....in general it's one of the worst cars from a styling standpoint that BMW has ever produced in my opinion. What disgusts me so much is that the current 3 series can be sooooo noice....and then they go and turn out something this hideous.

I totally agree with you Carloca Canuck and I was always
a big Bmw fan especialy the 7 series! I drove a 89 model
for 3 years and loved that car but what they did now is the
most ugliest limousine what they ever produced!

I drive an M5..so I'm a beamer fanatic.
However, I hate sedans that have the shifter on the steering wheel instead of between the seats.
Apparantely the 'tree' shifter handles about a dozen functions in the car.
It looks horrible.

I'm sure that technically it is a great car, but as far as the styling goes, three words come to mind.
Ugly, Ugly, Ugly
The front end is OK, but a definite step backwards from the beautiful 3 and 5 series. The back end looks like something off an old Subaru or Plymouth. This does not belong on a BMW and will not age well!
It is not in the same class as the Mercedes or the Jaguar. I bet BMW will be working on a restyle of the 7 series long before the normal schedule.

When I saw the first pictures, my first thought was: What ugly car do they want to sell, the bavarian folks in Dingolfing!
But, now, after we´ve had a real new 7 series here at the weekend for a promo-tour (BMW-seller here in Bayreuth), I must admit: In reality it looks much better than on the pixx! Great Car, especially the Edrive-System is great! Like have a PSII in a car. Good job, BMW

Nah, it's nice but it doesn't move me. The exterior is barely passing, but the interior looks like some sort of 80's car. What's with that ugly looking console? If I'm paying over $50K for a car, I wanna see shiny lighted buttons everywhere, I wanna see something digital looking, with hi-tech controls everywhere. I want it to look and feel like I'm rotating a 777 when I burst off the ramp onto the highway!

This thing IS really ugly...i didn't give the rear pic time to load last time....I see resemblances to Rover/Rolls Royce...big, ugly nasty cars. Whats up with that turn signal on top of the headlights? And that "lets copy alpha Romeo" trunk? Ugh.

Call me conservative, but I think BMW delivered a dog's breakfast of a styling job on the latest 7 Series
In comparison, the MB S-Class oozes class.
Such a stark contrast to the 5 Series vs E-Class contest; the 5 Series looks smart, the E-Class looks like a pregnant cow with demented bug eyes - sorry for the colourful descriptions, MB never integrated the headlights gracefully into the nose of the E-Class, utterly devoid of lithe forms.
25 Trvlr: Personally, I don't really like the 7-series too much. I mean, it doesn't really make as much of an impression on me as the S-Class or Q45 did when th
