lmao @ people joking 'don't get too middle eastern' haha. Before I knew/heard of Karim Habib, I always thought the exterior design of the current 7 series looked spectacular. I mean how did someone find the perfect balance between classy and aggressiveness? Love those tail LED lights and the overall look of the 7 series.
Best of luck to Karim

All the best to Mr. Habib.

I hope he makes BMW designs even better.

He is replacing Van Hooydonk in one of his two roles.
Van Hooydonk stays the chief of design at board level.

The first one is probably the CS, second I assume is the F10 5 series.
