2009 BMW 750i: Exhaust Me
February 23, 2010
I noticed last weekend during my time with the 750i that its exhaust finisher is part of the bodywork and that the actual exhaust tips don't make contact with the fascia which houses the finisher. Not a big deal, but certainly a detail which seems contradictory to the car's otherwise purposeful demeanor, not to mention a little cheesy. It's also something we've noticed in other performance sedans.
Also, if you look carefully, you can see the valve in the left exhaust tip which opens at full honk to, well, let the honk out -- which does seem purposeful. Heavy, sure, but purposeful.
