BMW is moving ahead with their scheduled facelift on the 7-Series, and we expect the freshened Bimmer to be at dealerships as early as next summer.

The exterior of BMW's flagship will now be reshaped into a softer, less controversial look: the most visible changes will be the all-new headlights and the wider and more curved twin-kidney grille. Revised bumpers front and rear will round the facelift.

Under the hood, we expect the 4.4-liter engine to be tweaked to 4.8 liters, reaching an output of nearly 400 horsepower. And rumors are circulating of a modified and higher-output 6.0-liter V-12.

BMW hopes that these changes, as well as others including modifications to the iDrive System, will breathe new life into their controversial flagship.

Gee, Bangle leaves and BMW immediatly reverses parts of his design. I don't think BMW brass liked him as much as they said publicly.

As for the car, yeah, I'd hit it.

Yea I need to see the whole car. The front headlights actually grew on me, I liked the "eyebrow" effect.

I was one of the few that liked the bangled version, except the trunk which seemed kind of wierd.

Those headlights give the car a cheap looking appearcance. Come on BMW, you got it right for so many years....it shouldn't be a problem to get back to beautiful designs.

This:


Or this:




I'll take the first one thanks. It's not perfect, but it's better.

Oh, and the first one is an obvious photochop, so don't be too harsh on it yet.

Bangle did not leave BMW, he was PROMOTED to head of BMW design for all their makes (bmw/mini/rolls). The man that actually designed the current 7 series (I don't remember his name) will be taking his place.

I agree somewhat I feel the newer design is better (Not by much) then the current style however, I think it still looks like shit.
