New York Triple Murder -- 7 Series???

The recent triple murder in Morningside Heights, near Colombia University, is all over the NY news. The articles claim that the car involved was an $88,000 2009 7 Series, but the photo of the front looks like a 5 to me. The rear looks like a 7.

Fotos are attached. Link to one of the many articles is here:

According to news outlets, the car was stolen and the victims were suspected of having robbed a drug dealer. Nothing to see here. Some people aspire to the better things in life but aren't the least bit interested in putting in the honest work that merit such rewards. Sad, yes; but the true lessons from this event won't be learned by those who most need to learn them.

That is definitely a 7.

Thank you for speaking up for all the hard working drug dealers of NY. Not many would have the courage to come forth like that.

That is indeed a 7 series. Some sources say it's a 2009 model or a 2012 BMW 750LI

I think you missed my point. I despise the drug culture and the false glamour that goes with it. I saw it first-hand growing up for a while in Harlem and then, again, as a young attorney in D.C. In fact, I was/am speaking up for those who work hard at honest labor to achieve the benefits of society.

Yes. I did get it. I went to college in Harlem.

I was being tongue in cheek.
