After seeing these photos below, I have the courage to come upfront and say it out loud: I love the new BMW 7 Series. Yes, it’s a BMWBLOG and we should love all the bimmers, but the truth is, we don’t, so sure, go ahead, call us fanboys one more time, but I am not afraid anymore to clearly state that I LOVE the new 7 Series.

I remember the first time I saw the car in Los Angeles, it was a…..delicate feeling, a part of my heart wanted to love the 7er and finally stop the Mercedes fans bragging about their S-Class, but the other part of my heart – yes, I have two- was a little bit reluctant and didn’t fall for it immediately.

Love at first sight is something that has never happened to me, regardless if it was an object or a person, but being far as I am, decided to give it another chance. The more and more I saw the 7er, it started to grow on me, I paid attention closely to the design lines and actually began to enjoy its “big, flat nose”. Many of you might recall my articles where I started to rant about how much I dig the 7 Series models in darker colors, but today, for the first time, a silver painted 750Li has won my heart and finally saw the full potential of this car.

Now, I’m not sure if it’s the quality of these photos, amazing btw, or simply the fact that Brandon from EuropeanAutoSource decided to cover up all the chrome elements found on this silver 750Li. Basically, they removed all the chrome from the rear trunk strip, door handles, side marker trim, front bumper grille trim and soon, the kidney grille will lose its “shine” as well.

The result? One of the best looking 7 Series I have seen so far and the reason why I got so excited today.

I never thought that removing the chrome might actually improve the overall look, but in my opinion and yes, just my opinion, it looks better without it. I also recall one of my previous BMWs I owned, a 325i Silver Gray which has no chrome at all and everytime I would see the higher-end 3er, 330i, I would get jealous of that shinny trim and grille, but looking at my 335i right now, I kinda wonder if it would look different without the chrome…..Anyway, that’s a different story for another time.

Enjoy the photos and let’s hear how big of a fanboy I am….
