2023 LCI X7 M60 in carbon black at BMW Welt

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I toured BMW Welt and did a factory tour of Munich today. I am from Colorado and have a 2023 X7 M60 on order (week 33, currently in stage 112). They had an M60 on the floor right when you walk in, and I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked the new front end. You could not get in the car, but the new dash looks great (Ivory interior) through the window.

Though I don't prefer the new headlights design, that isn't a reason to skip purchasing a beautiful; otherwise vehicle. I figure the design will look fine to me after a while.

Nice, thanks for sharing. That the first time Iíve seen a real one with the 754Ms, looks great.

I agree, I actually dig the new front end design. I was critical of it on the 7 series sedan, but really like the execution here. I think itíll grow on people quickly.

Good find

I just can't see past those headlights, maybe in person they look better. Everything else looks good but then again it's all similar to the pre LCI so it should.

At some point they will be on the streets or at the dealership and I'll see if it changes my mind.

I still think the older version looks more "handsome" and sinister (mine below) but I'm not hating the new direction...it has a boldness to it that will likely grow on folks

New version has better street presence IMO and is a step into the right direction. The old design is too safe.
I have never driven by a BMW going WOW look at that.... Looking outdated and BMW knows that. Time for a change and I agree it has boldness.

Too much going on with the front fascia - there is the split headlights, then the fangs from the headlight, then the overly busy lower bumper. When looking at it, my attention is all over the place.

Looks absolutely massive. The US is probably the only country this will fit re roads and car parks. Way too big for mainland Europe

That M badge in the grill looks too big, almost looks like those tacky oversized ones everyone adds to their non-M.

The M badges in the grill on the current M cars are more subtle.

Looks nice, although I am more interested in that 8 series GC behind it, I would love to see the new X7 in person. In your photos the front end looks far better than I first thought and I like it even more now.

BMW is becoming Ike a Hyundai.

This look is not original anymore.

Believe the road presence on the current design only needed slight changes like those coming to the LCI X5. The new design loses symmetry imo - I am hoping the exterior and interior get a cleaner finish when the new generation comes out when I am planning on replacing my 2021.

It's 9" shorter than a 7 series and only one inch wider. While it's a big car, it's not that much bigger than many luxury cars. Those may not sell well in Europe either, but it might be more of a perception issue than reality.

Feel the opposite. Old design was boring and uninspired. BMWs have always lacked road presence. Have never driven by one and been wowed. Always playing things too safe on the outside.

Change is hard for many of you. It will be okay. A BMW is more than a headlight design
