These are the rims of the M Sport which were present on the launch car;

And are much better than those of the car shown at the Auto Expo.

Quality and materials used are truly top notch, and the lighting especially the sky lounge is great!

Waiting to see how the air suspension performs on our roads, and if the ride quality is anywhere near the S class.

Prices too seem to be fine, and the M sport trim adds a lot of features for just a couple of lacs more.
The M sport is really well equipped, I am waiting to see the sky lighting feature on the glass roof. If i was in the market for the 7, I would pay the extra 7-8% for the M sport variant. It looks much better too.
MB must increase the equipment level on the 2016 S350d to match up. At Least they should put better alloys and offer an AMG kit. Moreover, they must give a similar BSI pack for 3 years.

I am curious to know if the rear seat height of the old 7 has been maintained. This was one area where I felt the previous 7 won over the new S. The higher seating position at the rear made getting in and our of the car easier and also offered better thigh support. However, from the images it seems that the new 7 has lost this advantage since the seats now look lower placed.

Looks mouth watering delicious with all the gizmos and styling. The first reaction on seeing the pics is to get inside, shut the doors and take it for a looooong spin.

The car looks superb! Finally some competition for the S.

Does the 730d have the same 3.0 liter 6 cylinder engine (in a higher tune) that is offered in the F10 530d?

I think it was always same after they changed Dash display somewhere in 2014 , when 6 cylinder model engines were upgraded . But for certain unknown reasons , I always felt my 2014 MY 530-D to be quite then 2015 MY 730-D.

Now new 7 has even higher Bhp & substantially higher Torque - 620 against 560 on 530-D - have a look at comparison ,

On a different note - just sold my Havana 730-D , can't wait to get hands on new one

The new 7 has a new diesel engine too. Its the B57 as compared to the N57 which was in the 7 series you had.

That's cool , they will upgrade 530 in coming months then. I lost lot of money on last 7 , hopefully newer 7 is quieter & better then outgoing.

I think the new engine will only be added to the new 5 which will come out shortly.

Though seeing BMWs effort on this 7, I'm sure it will be far quieter and better refined than the one you had.

Looks lots of 750 have landed wonder if they have so many bookings already or have they taken a risk in which case there might be some opportunities later of picking these at Discounts

This will dent the S Class monopoly but not mop it up. This appeals more for the tech savvy business man and the occassional owner-driver. Judging by the numbers of 7's one sees, it will do well in India. somehow, in China, I saw very few newer 7's than before.

Going by the BMW India configurator these also seem to be the stock rims that the M Sport variant will come equipped with.

THAT! my dear gentlemen, you call it car of the year. undoubtedly, by far, the best car in this expo. Top quality interior, top notch tech, gorgeous looks. This is how a 1 crore+ car should look like. Jaguar should learn and know how to make cars now.
