The wheels look horrific on that body. IMO, the wheels make a huuuuuuuuuge difference. They are definitely killing the overall appearance of the car. :(

Dash has WAY too many buttons, I'm guessing the iDrive system is really dumbed down now?
And...what is difference between F01 and F02? :dunno:

Wow, not a fan. Wheels look cheap and style does not suit the car; rear end and tailpipe exits look too "Lexus"; front kidneys are ridiculously large--looks almost like BMW was trying to copy a BMW, if that makes any sense.

Too bad.

Took one of the above photos and washed out the side marker.... The car looks so much better, IMHO. BMW should have put the marker into the side mirrors.

I have read over an over on the side marker on the mirror.

When BMW does something similar - we beat em up for copying or looking like another brand.

When they do their own thing - we wish they'd do like the others...

We cant have it both ways crew!!! haha!
I like side markers too btw.

You're wrong... the side markers suck with all the chrome around them.

I love it - when its your comment - it's "In Your humble opinion" (IMHO) - but when I state my opinion - your response is that I am WRONG! As if there is a correct answer.

Im sorry everyone for being the only one to appear to like the side markers - I apoligize:(

Sorry jmbaker, I was so wrong.
I am also sorry for wasting "my" time in twitter.
I should probably spend "quality" time on a Mercedez forum, stating how Mercedez drivers' opinion are WRONG on the car, THEY drive.

:rofl:

The new 7 actually looks like an over sized 5 series.....Same shape and all, even steering wheel.

The new 7 looks nicer in person and actually looks more sporty and less bulky from front and side profile then my E65 7er. However, I think the rear of the E65 was much better looking. Also with regards to the 19" rims on the new 7er. I think BMW went back wards as the 19" rims on E65 7er were much better looking then the ones on the F01 7er.

I'm not sure if this makes a difference, but the 19" sport wheels are forged vs cast. This may affect what BMW can do to make them look better. Cast you just pour the metal into a mould. With forging, you have to be able to hammer the metal. Performance wise, forged wheels are lighter.

I believe forged wheels come in all type of styles. Most 20 or 22" forged wheels actually have designs that are as good if not better looking then the cast. My 22" inch wheels were 3 piece custom forged.
