Tarp is covering the rear door handle. Air dam is a dead giveaway... also look at the side mirrors. The hood is popped up from the impact which gives it the sloping look of a 6er but "that ain't no sixer."

AHA!!! Look at the shape of the quarter panel! No chance it's a 6.

Too bad none of this counts toward my post count...

Never mind the photo cues, how would you even fit four forty year old guys in a 6 series? OK it could be done, but that'd be a tight fit.

You, my friend, are a visual genius! Well articulated!

7 series LCI!

looks to me the front windshield areas, A and B pillars took the blunt of the impact. the front crumple zone is not even deformed, so that can possibly mean the airbags didnt even go off.... yikes decapitation.

it only looks like a 6 because the front end of the 6 resembles a smashed up 7.

Its actually very fast speeds considering that its a construction zone. If i were driving through a 80kph construction zone with trucks close to the open lanes, i would be going 70-75kph.
