Cool pictures.

Is the X7 grill as ridiculous looking in real life as in the photos?

I was thinking the same thing. I canít get over how big and cartoonish it looks.

I've been up to Thermal 3 times now, and it's always a blast! What are you up there for? M School? I didn't get to drive the M850i on the track, hopefully you will!

No school for me unfortunately. I am working at the dealer launch event for the z4, 330, 850 and X7

Did they take the X7 there? Seriously? You can't have your cake and eat it too. That thing is a handling embarassment, why would you want to expose it? That looks like it's about to tip over in that clip.

I still need to do a double-take on these new BMWs that don't quite look like BMWs.

Should be the quickest car on the track that day. Just cutting all the corners by taking dirts.

Wow that video is one of the most cringeworthy things I've seen in my life.

The Z4 and 8er get better looking every time I see them.

I don't know but it was a very flat silver/grey color. I think I've seen it in some of the other recent postings of the X4m...something like Donnington grey or something

what was really embarrassing was watching them try and show off the collision avoidance of the X7 and it kept running over cardboard cutouts of the 330
