After many months of testing and multiple prototype sightings, the debut of the 7 Series LCI facelift refresh is imminent. The reveal should come by the end of this month.
Here is a preview of the 7 Series facelift, based on some recent spy photos. Most of the refresh changes will be to the front fascia. Full LED headlights will come to the 7 series for the first time, with the turn signal lights now integrated into the eyebrow. It will receive a more aggressive lower front fascia, with more pronounced and longer splitter fins on the lower lip, and we think there will be air curtains vents integrated into the bumper, as the spy photos indicate.

New optional feature for all BMW 5 Series: individualised cockpit thanks to multifunction instrument display.
An optional feature [from July] that will enhance operation of the automobile in all BMW 5 Series models (except BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Edition and BMW ActiveHybrid 5): the multifunction instrument display.
