Driving the 7er to Portoro˛ and back - in photos
 
12 Attachment(s)
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.

Must have been nice.

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

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