BMW dropped its updated  7 Series flagship model earlier this month and our readers didn't hold back from commenting on the luxury sedan's new grille. 

The automaker says the new grille is 40% larger than the one fitted to outgoing model. And it's not only for aesthetics, the larger grille helps cool the updated engine as the bigger inlet allows more air to be fed to the radiator.

The updated 7 will be available in SA from the second quarter of 2019 (long wheel base derivatives only; 745Le, 750Li xDrive, M760Li xDrive & 730Ld).
