Im afraid to think what the BMW 7er will look like when Im in my 40s and 50s. I better keep my E38 as long as I can.

Next 7 will be a 750 sport. Not sure if Im gonna go i or Li. Probably Li. Its nice having all that room.

I think BMW needs to focus more on power upgrades, a 4.8L engine can't keep up with the 5.5 in the benz, and the BMW V12 has about 100 less HP than the merc

Tail is looking a little fat....Instead of dual single pipes, I'd rather see quads...looks like a big 3er.

Yeah def needs more power in the future. Although the Alpina B is nice and very fast.

Does look a lot like a Big 3 especially in the back with those weak pipes. I thought the one concept that was gonna rival the CLS looked like this? It was the 4 door coupe or w/e they called it?

IMO, a big muscular rear end is a good thing.

why power upgrades? i would more like that they focus further on fuel efficiency , and one power beast in the range.

Exhausts will be similar to X6 V8 as it has the same bi-turbo V8 engine plus 8-speed transmission.

Um okay, as long as the 8-speed isn't anywhere near as bad as the one in the Lexus.

E38 is still the best 7 IMO. I'll take a 2000-2001 in black or silver, black leather, sport package, and rear sunshades.
