The prying lens of Mrs. Priddy and her minions captured the newest 7-series during a test run, naturally donning its prerequisite outerwear.

The LLN crew gathered from the photos that the new seven will be 'toned down a bit,' compared to its Bangled elderly siblings, with a more subtle rear end and a revised fascia. We would certainly hope so, considering how much criticism was levied on the initial redesign of BMW's luxury sedan. Left Lane's notion that the new front end will draw inspiration from the 6-series may be a bit off, as the six was inspired by the seven and BMW may decide to evolve in a more mature manner, moving away from its original divisive design.

Judging by the previous comments of our readers, we'd assume that any changes would be welcomed.
