Subtle changes to new BMW 7-series

BMW is making changes to the specification, interior and exterior design of all 7-series cars produced from this month. Exterior revisions include the front headlamps, which now resemble the new 3-series design, two new alloy wheel designs and five new metallic paint colours.

Under the bonnet both the six- and eight-cylinder engines have more flexibility to meet forthcoming emission laws. Inside the cars there are illuminated internal door handles, new upholstery colours and new switch designs. All models receive Car and Key Memory for personalised central locking functions, seat and air-conditioning settings and lighting preferences. The 728i, 735i and 740i receive Park Distance Control, and the 740iL gains a fixed GSM car telephone as standard.

With the changes comes a price increase - the entry level 728i is at £37,545 (£36,920), 735i £44,935 (£43,710), 740i £51,495 (£50,570), 740iL £58,645 (£57,720), 750i £71,445 (£69,920), and the 750iL £76,575 (£75,050) - all prices are on the road. The new cars will be available in UK BMW dealerships from the end of this month.
