Default 2009 BMW 7-Series

http://www.worldcarfans.com/rs...spied

nice shots of the engine bay... looks like bmw let the bay stay open intentionally to let the motor cool down faster....

and the writing on the inside looks like the mule came over from cold weather testing including up to -40degC temps...

the pictures are from around the 18/03/2007 @ bmw's ring facility

The camo is still very heavy. I wonder what is hidding under all that cladding. I hope it's smth heavily based on the CS Concept.

bmw has to raise the hood due to pedestrian regulations going into effect in the EU for the update 7 series.. it show a little in those shots

it makes life better when being run over by EU approved cars in the US and the rest of the world too;-)))

Of course anyone who does not look both ways before stepping into a pedestrian lane lacks common sense. I love when we make regulations to protect the oblivious from their own lack of common sense.

Yeh, I wonder as well. So long as that ugly front end with the stupid looking headlights in that artist impression in the first post isn't want to expect. Lets hope overall they keep it looking clean with no silly looking front and rear ends.

Don't worry, that cgi has nothing in common with the actual car.

i wonder if you argue like that when ur kids got run over by a car...

or you where mowed down by a drunk driver plowing into a busy intersection with green lights for pedestrians...

your arguments suck...
