2009 7-series spy shots

Even under huge fake body panels, we can see that the front end styling will be similar to that of the new 6 Series, and that the overall design will be toned down a bit. The new 7-series is not expected to be released until sometime during the 2008 calendar year.

Interesting - look at the 2 dashboard humps - I think I'm liking the idea. I think the next gen 7 needs tail lights similar to those on the new 3 series coupe - just bigger.

Lol, all 7 series have two dashboard humps... As well as the 6, 5 and new 3 (with the navigation option).

Havn't been to a BMW dealer much?

Interesting to note, the eyebrow seems to have gone. And the body is much more round this time. Also the trunk is a lot more swoopy which reminds me of the Hyundai Azera's trunk - which itself is a copy of the 7.

Also, BMW is going to be the second manufacturer (after the Lexus LS) to have the exhaust integrated into the rear bumper. The door handles are also a new style and there seems to be a built in rear diffuser.

Perhaps the screen is larger in the next one.

There's no reason to start guessing about body-details with all these extra panels. Apart from the general shape we can't tell much about what it will really look like.

They are fake stick-ons. They had used the turn signal stick-ons on E70 test mules as well.
