Thanks for sharing your perspective, especially with your artistic background.

Having seen a new 7 series at a dealership, I must say that it looks better in person than in pictures. I don't hate it, but I don't particularly think that it looks appropriately aggressive or muscular like a bimmer should. The rear view is especially bland.

What I really don't like is the increasing reliance on complicated electronic gizmos. They keep loading up these cars with gadgets to appeal more to the "my car is a sophisticated appliance" crowd. You don't want to own one of these without a warranty -- if one of those gadgets breaks, the repair costs will eat you alive.

I say this from the perspective of an Infiniti Q45 owner. The out of warranty costs for repairing gizmos is quite prohibitive. So as things break, I just don't bother fixing them anymore...(sigh)
