I thought this forum would enjoy some Fotos of the new 7er from the week I spent with it in Germany. There´s no question that BMW has significantly raised the bar with this car. In fact, when I dropped the 730d off, I was picked up in an E65 7er to return to my hotel. It felt so dated it wasn´t funny.

Enjoy!

Nice!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. I really want this as my 7 replacement. I am betting it will be the hottest selling premium sedan of 09!

I love the new Idrive. The new graphics give the old ones a fierce donkey punch never mind the increased user friendliness and functionality.

thanks for the pics...i had the chance to sit in one here in Darmstadt. While some like it, I feel it doesnt surpass what Mercedes offers in the S550. maybe it will grow on me.....I'm in need of a larger car (3 kids and a wife - all have long legs).....and would like to have my kids in an S550 or a 750li

Very nice!

What is it you do again? Aren't you an automotive journalist?
