That same mug is going to be the design of the 7 twins.

Its really obnoxious and i guess its catering to a select market. Lexus LM move over a new sheriff is in town.

I'm more curious on their new twin turbo V8. I listened to a walk around with the X7 60i and an X5 50i and the old V8 sounds better to me. I would love a true side by side comparison besides just playing two different youtube videos but since they added a slight hybrid to it curious on the reaction to the new V8.

MB and BMW ultra luxury offerings are all made with Chinese market being their priority. Some two decades ago that priority place belonged to the US.

While it's not as crazy as the old V8, it still has a nice tone to it. I'm really excited for the S68 engine and how it will perform!

It’s crazy to think people say vans look like crap and they will line up to buy this Frankenstein thing cause it’s a CUV.

I was driving along a few days ago, and in my rear view mirror i saw this

Mind you my surprise when those lights pass me and I see the new patterned BMW rear X7 tail lights. SMH

The angel light signature was just soo much more classy

Can't believe how far BMW has fallen. Although the big sniffer has grown on me on the G80 M3... man the new split headlights on the 7 and X7 combined with the big grilles are just terrible. Not to mention the horrible proportioned IX with the weird body surfacing.

I totally forgot to post last month in Phoenix they had the new X7 to rent. I was shocked. Honestly seeing another fleet of BMWs to rent just looks bad. And yes this thing is awful in person.

Rented another X5 and meh.
