The 2013 BMW 7 Series has an appointment for some cosmetic surgery, according to a report in Car & Driver. The restyle will be minimal, with detail changes around the fascia going just far enough to let other 7 Series owners know that you have the latest model.

A more substantive change could occur under the skin of the ActiveHybrid 7, however. It's nearly $13,000 more expensive than it's non-hybrid counterparts but doesn't make an equally hard-to-ignore case for efficiency: the ActiveHybrid 750i has 55 more horsepower than the standard car, but is rated at 17 city / 26 highway versus 15 city / 22 highway. Speculation is that the ActiveHybrid 7 could get the six-cylinder powertrain from the ActiveHyrbrid 5 to improve its green credentials.

      Why does this car have such huge "nostrils" compared to the kidney grills on every other BMW. It looks like it's nose is turned upwards.

      I used to like the 750iL, at least in terms of styling. Remember the one in James Bond flick "Tomorrow Never Dies"? That was a nice, clean, complete, understated design that exuded both elegance and robustness: http://www.snyderworld.co.cc/index.php?p=1_19_BOND-CARS Compared to this, that old one was gorgeous. Those giant nostrils are hideous! Especially viewed from straight on in photo #6. What happened?!?!?

      $13k more for the hybrid? No problem! This is BMW after all; they always find a way to raise prices (Dollar weaker, raise prices! Dollar stronger, raise prices! Add cylinders, raise prices! Remove cylinders, raise prices!) You want Nav in a $60k car? Only $3k extra! Ridiculous. Apparently not everyone was read 'The Emperor's New Clothes" as a child.

      Hopefully whatever visual tweaks they do, they do something about that awful pig-nose snout. As if this car needed anything else to make it look like the pig that it is... Why not just put a pink, coiled-up tail on the trunklid?

        I like the larger kidney grills on the 5 and 7 Series.

          It makes there cars look like they tried to fit the insides of a 5/7 series into the body of 3 series. The 5/7 series are sick cars, but they look oversized.

      The BMW 7 series are wonderful vehicles. If you're ever blessed to own one you will agree. Nothing compares to them. Remember, we all have different taste. That's what makes the world so interesting. To each his own. Take care all.
