since your M bumper doesnt have foglights, where is it relocated?

does the Xdrive model have a higher ground clearance?

Oddly enough there are no foglights (front or rear) on the M Sport models. The two switches to the left of the headlight switch are deleted.

I'm not sure if the ride height is higher on the X Drive models. There does seem to be a lot of space between the wheel and the fender. However, I wouldn't want it to be much lower as there is not too much clearance between the lower part of the front bumper and parking curbs.

Boy, there sure is a lot of space between the wheel and the fender. Thanks for the photos esk, they really show the gap.

I don't like it at all. Makes the X Drive 7 look like an SUV. It would probably look even worse without the optional 20's. Add one more thing to the list of things that I dislike about the new 7's looks.

Oh well, it's a BMW, it's not about how it looks, it's about the

No Fog Lights on M Sport - Surprising!

Very surprised that 2010 M Sport has NO fog lights!! Here's my 2009 Sport Package equipped 750 with front fog lights in lower outter front air dam. What is rationale of deleting this feature in the "upgraded" 2010 M Sport Package?

I went by the dealer today and they have a non X Drive 7 in the showroom. The wheel gap appears to be the same as mine.

The 2010 M Sport package is the 2009 Sport package plus 19"/20" M Wheels, Anthracite headliner, Aerodynamic kit, and M steering kit.

As you can see from the pictures below none of these Ms have fog lights.

Thinking about the 750xi M Sport

I just gave back my ML63 AMG and swore that I would never own anything but a SUV.... My favorite car/truck to date. Yesterday I just saw a Black 750i xDrive M sport with 20" wheels and my jaw dropped. I think I am going to take the plunge. esk How did your winter go? Do you still feel the same way you did? I am really concerned about the ride of the 20" wheels? Wanted to order a 2011 Black/Saddle, but my plans changed and I need a car ASAP. The dealer is offering over $10,000 off sticker on the Black/Black and it has the exact options I would order.

I think all F01-F02's should be equipped with Fog lights, its BMW's flagship luxury sedan...even with the M package, they could have added Fog lights without taking away from its sporty look.
