2013 BMW 7-Series Facelift: Spy Shots
LED Headlights for sure + they will keep the V12 for sure (The engine is new and also used by Rolls-Royce)
Edit: Those wheels/rims on the prototype is the ugliest I have ever seen on any BMW.
Can't really tell anything. Looks to be a careful facelift, with obvious headlight graphics/changes being the focal point.
The front valance gets updated too. It is a mix of the new 6er and Active Hybrid 7 Concept Car. Aswell as additional air curtain on the lower part.
Not much can be seen but Full-LED front lights are given and the turning lights will move from the outer corners to the top of the front lights.
I truly hope the front apron gets a thorough redesign as it currently is the weakest part of the design. :eusa_pray
I guess full LED lights were inevitable.
Smaller kidney grille.
For goodness sake I hope they do something with the terrible looking front bumper. The 7-Series has to have the M pack to look right up front. The standard bumper is just plain stupid looking.
As an owner of an F10, it will take a lot for me to consider buying up to a 7 if the interior is identical. If anything, the 7er interior feels a little stale and uninteresting compared to the more "concentrated" 5er interior. They really need to do something about this..
One thing that is certain is that the F01/02 is the best looking luxury sedan in it's class with presence, elegance and a certain sportiness only the Jaguar XJ comes close in the 'turning heads' department.
In the TV series Dexter, a guy called Jordan Chase had a black F02 750Li...man that car just looks good on Miami's roads and on TV:bowdown:
The grill needes to be redesigned but id doubt it will, it's the only real weak point of the car.
Excellent spot there Bartek! The updated grille definitely is less snouty.
Also, what's up with the 'iCenter' badging behind the front wheel-arch?
Great news!! I always felt the Active Hybrid 7 Concept's front valance was more in-style with the rest of the 7er than the overly simplistic design of production model.
I wonder who at BMW, after looking at these sketches, decided to go with option #2. :eusa_thin
It's exactly the same as before. The chrome is different only, and that's because of active cruise control/night vision/whatever, and already available on the pre facelift.
Okey so the kidneys are too large but I dont want it to change. Large kidneys gives the car character and presence on the road.
I think I may be amongst the minority, but imo this 7 isn't ageing very well.
I don´t believe those are the final kidneys. I gues the final ones will mimic the 6er ones.
Klier is most definitely on the money there.
Hoping for an interior update to diffrentiate it further from the 5er
^ 7er already has the very best BMW interior design right now imo. Everything else is less good looking. Including new 6er (imo of course).
7er interior is royal and supreme imo. Simple perfection.
I'll say you right here and right now, to avoid major disappointment:
the grille will not change shape.
If so then worse for them, it will do wonders for the front. The kidneys shold be wider and less rounded.
And I agree 7er interior is the best BMW interior, and my favourite in the segment. But I think it should have more differences with the 5er one and be more exclusive.
