It is a repost. The new F01 7er takes cues from the CS concept. This design has been finalized for a while now.

And yes, the pig nose is a bit of a let down too. If they had toned down with the kindey grills, I think the front fascia would've looked fantastic. I have YET to see it in the metal, so I can't judge the car completely. It probably isn't as bad as it is in pictures.

Hate the whole front end of the 7er except for the headlights. The top grill is too big. The bottom grill is too wide.

No they are not. I dont know why this car is like that but i saw a video on fifth gear and it was normal grill.

And this car is butt ugly. Its sad that Hyundai's make a better looking sedan than Bmw and Mercedes.

I think it's for the night camera and the other visual equipment.

That grill is a piece of hideous junk.

This car grows on me more and more as time passes, kind of like the Bangle designs (well, at least on the 5er). I like the front end a lot, it's very masculine.

what's different? nothing.

are the grilles too big? no, but that's my opinion.

what are the horizontal slats? they're active aero pieces, according to a press release.

Are the kidney grills evolving to waffle grids?
