BMW says the front-end modifications for 2006 have been "executed with the utmost reserve and subtlety." In addition to the restyled hood, the 7 Series sedans have reshaped rocker panels with pronounced ridges, fresh lighting clusters, and a reworked front bumper and spoiler. The extended-wheelbase 760Li sedan has a chrome roof molding.

The trunk lid, taillamp clusters, rear bumper and spoiler have been modified. The rear bumper's wraparound portion tucks in more noticeably than before, and the taillamps now wrap into the reshaped trunk lid. All models now have chrome trim on the bumpers. Suspension bushings have been refined.

One differentiation the 760 models have from the 750 is a high-gloss Shadowline black finish around their side windows rather than matte black and chrome. The standard Electronic Damping Control suspension has a Sport mode as its default. The 760i has 20-inch performance tires, while the extended-length 760Li sedan rolls on standard 19-inch rubber. Both models are fitted with a self-leveling rear suspension.

BMW's regular-length 760i sedan is built on a 117.7-inch wheelbase, versus a 123.2-inch version on the extended-length 760Li sedan.
