Because BMW is nothing if not punctual, the company's already doing outdoor tests of a refresh to the 7 Series expected for the 2013 model year. Outside of turn signals in the rearview mirrors, change may not be a selling point.
It's hard to not be detail-oriented when buying a new car. Jeff G. went all out for BMWBlog, hyperstalking his car from the factory to his dealer. This one of the most obsessive things we've ever seen. —Ed.
Last year, sales of BMW's midsize sedan hit 5.5 million. The outgoing 5er, known as the E60, represented the car's fifth generation. I have at least five personal stories to tell about the 5-series. Coincidence? I think not!
The E38 BMW 7-Series has been and will always be one of the most significant executive sedans of all time. Doesn't protect the later E65 from the occasional jerk-off who advertises their success. Example? This guy and his license plate.
The six-cylinder 7-series has been absent from our shores since 1992, when BMW gifted base U.S. Sevens with a DOHC V8. Think luxury cars should have a swingin' six and creamy power delivery? Rejoice! Your prayers have been answered.
In 1994 BMW dropped all six-cylinder engines for the 7-series in favor of the V8/V12 power needed to haul their bloated-by-features luxobarges. Now, inline-six fans rejoice! The 2011 BMW 740i is back with an inline-six powerful enough to haul itself.
