Similarly, saw the new 7 driving in person the other day, and it is a total eyesore as well. Never warmed up to the design even in person.
The grill on the 7er sedan isn't good but I like the grill on the X7 a lot. They did it better on the X7 where the grill makes it have more road presence.. the 7er sedan grill just looks weird.

I think its all about proportions. On the X7 the grill is tall, but the vehicle itself is also big, but the 7-series, the grill looks bigger than the X7's despite being on a vehicle that is physically smaller, it just isn't proportionate at all for the 7er sedan.

I think we are all paying the price for the SUV market. A few years ago, BMW's SUVs looked like ridiculous sedan cars jacked up on stilts with an extra 6" of bodywork tacked on the bottom.

Now we have the opposite... BMW's recent sedan cars look like a heavy SUV that has been lowered without fixing up the proportions. (hence the huge grille and the fugly rear ends that seem to have multiple bumpers)

Be grateful since it could be so much worse... we could have M cars that look like this:

Agree. Absolutely disproportionate, not even a "grows on you" design.

I think it would look much improved if the moved the top of the grill down to be in line with the headlights. As it is now its just too big and ill-positioned.

When Scott said the new M4 will look good, they haven't gone mad I initially assured myself that was true. Then I thought about this car...It's just atrocious.
