Talking about 33-inch brake discs or 97-pot calipers or artifically intelligent fuzzy logic learning door handles is just a smokescreen for the car's underlying blandness and so-so styling -- that sort of talk is more typical of "lesser" manufacturers and it's worrying to hear it from BMW.

Think of the current seven or the five or the three and there's a typically BMW aggressiveness about the styling. Something smart. I don't see it in the new seven.
