    Re: Much improved 7 Series?

    I like the look of the 5 series, but would never pay the extra $20,000 for a 7. It's just not worth it imo and they have to get rid of I-Drive, too complicated for many and I don't care to spend 2 hours on the driveway learning before I could drive.

    I prefer more of a soft ride that you get in an american luxury car.

    The dashboards of the new 2006 BMW 3 series, the new 5 series, and the new 7 series just don't have driver-oriented dashboards like the cars they replaced. The new 7 series isn't available with a manual transmission like the three previous generations (the 95-01 7 series wasn't available with one in the USA though). The interior materials of the new 5 series don't match the interior materials of the previous 5 series. The headlights of the 7 series make it look "sad."

    Look at the tacked-on trunk of the new M6. The badge also looks tacked-on. The rear diffusier (sp) is hideous.



    The interior of the new M6 looks bland with a bunch of lines going all over the place. It will likely cost around $100,000. Notice the cheap hood release on the left.



    Here is an 850CSi. The 8 series was the previous big BMW coupe and it used its own chassis. The 850CSi was the high-performance 8 series.

    Here is a website with videos and pictures of the 8 series.

    The new X3 which isn't even made at a BMW factory and has nasty plastic bumpers.



    I could go on and on but I might stop with this...

    I hope the new 7 series will be more user friendly and aesthetically pleasing than the current E65. IMO, the E32 was the last of the great 7 series, my old 1990 750iL brought me 72,000 miles of pure driving enjoyment and I still see it around town with over 180K now. I purchased a used demo 1995 750iL in late 1995 and traded it on a 1996 S500 1 year later because it was full of problems. I know 1995 was one of the worst years for BMW, and they have fixed most of the bugs the older models were plagued with.. but it was just a horrible experience. The M line is progressing the way its competitors are progressing.. a mix of luxury and sport. I still remember the good old days of the M6, E28 M5, and E30 M3, nothing but raw performance with almost perfect fit and finish (and electrical gremlins).. not overdone like the newer models. I am trying to "go with the flow," but it seems newer autos do not have character like they used to.

    I am liking the M6 interior.

    I too think that the '90s 7 series was the best ever. looking at it just makes you want to be a millionare just so you can drive that car.

    Re: Much improved 7 Series?

    Cheap Hood release?? Have you ever used the hood release in a BMW....they are used with just the smallest nudge from your pinkey....they are the smoothest out there....

    Styling being subjective.....the BMWs are still great driving cars and nothing really touches them deep down.....if a 7 series was givin to me.....id keep it no doubt and id be happy as hell too.

    Here is the interior of a BMW 8 series. Notice the _complete_ lack of cheap interior materials.

    I agree.......in every car ive EVER seen BMW is the only one who can get away with Blue and Purple interiors....they do them so tasteful....BMW Individual rules.

    Will all 8 series use leather on the dash? Or is this only for show cars?

    And that steering wheel pad looks like a cheap '80's one to me. Maybe it's the picture quality though.

    Re: Much improved 7 Series?

    The 5 series looks better than the 7, and the new 3 series looks better than the 5.

    But I am waiting for the 1 series to arrive in coupe form to the US before I contemplate buying a BMW.

    I already have a good looking large car, I want a small nimble fuel efficient car now.

    I hope Bangle doesn't touch the 1 series (or would a coupe be called 2 series in this crazy change everything you once knew about your favorite cars world?).

    The 3 series is too small for my tastes. I don't remember if someone posted this yet, but here is is....
