The G11/G12 BMW 7 Series of the current generation has received a new look for the facelift version, and the biggest changes can be seen at the exterior of the car where the oversized grilles can be seen immediately, the front bumper with the design of the BMW Vision Future Luxury Concept, the tail lights behind the car are joined together by an illuminated line using LED technology. The tail lights use the L shape seen on the new G20 BMW 3 Series and in my opinion it’s a better design.
Inside, small aesthetic improvements can be seen, among which the most striking improvement is the new instrument cluster design that is used in the new generation of BMW X5, G20 3 Series, Z4, respectively the all-new 8 Series. Some changes have been introduced to the control side of the safety systems where the buttons have been repositioned. The steering wheel has also received minor modifications and the infotainment system is represented by the new iDrive 7.
A special advantage is that this facelifted BMW 7 Series can be personalized to the liking of the customers and can be fitted with the complete M package using Nappa top quality leather upholstery in several nuances that are part of the Exclusive range.

Nappa leather interior, or Merino leather interior, feature 6 nuances, the latter being present in the BMW Individual collection. The interior can be accessorized with the best quality elements of wood, or even metal.
The new facelift of the BMW 7 Series is more than just a facelift and has brought great design and functionality improvements to match its rivals, Audi and Mercedes, with their models Audi A8 and Mercedes S Class. BMW has made a little bigger changes in order to “revive” the sales of this model until the new generation of the BMW 7 Series will be launched shortly.
The BMW 7 Series Facelift is 22mm longer than the non-facelift version, its width and height remaining the same size.
The Executive Lounge package offers the most luxurious package of this model and offers the following options: comfort seats with massage and ventilation for all passengers, air conditioning on 4 zones and rear passengers will have an infotainment system made of two 10-inch screens and a 7-inch tablet.
The interior is much better soundproofed and the windows are a bit thicker than the non facelift version, which gives the car a bigger comfort. As far as emissions are concerned, this model is in the Euro6 standard.
The G11/G12 BMW 7 Series facelift comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission with minor updates.
