It looks fine. I think the current one looks fine. Hopefully it drives better than the current one. The rest of the car I'm not worried about. It will be fast, have a nice interior, etc etc.

Hope the render's not accurate. I just don't understand the continuation of the high outside lines on the hood, making the concave thing in the middle. Probably in the minority that even notices it, but I just don't like it.

If this had Kia badges on it I wouldn't notice the difference.

The new 7-series looks a lot like a Kia

I still remember the first time I saw an e38 on the road. Specifically, the rear view. It did not look like that^.

What is with every car these days having fake over-styled exhaust exits?

I bet that car is easily the size of the older 7. Cars are getting way too big.

Going have to do something the current 5 is pretty bad. Really all of them are E/A6/5 are all lagging way behind in their respective companies.
