I would expect new 7er will be act the same here: base model will have exhaust similar to the current M760li. At least to me, that makes sense.

IMO those small features, that today allows you to distinguish top-end model from base model will be one of the selling points for us, the owners, to switch. While owning high-end model, you don't want to be mistaken with newer base model by random bystanders, right
That was my favourite setup in the F chassis.

The smallest engines had a single small exhaust, then some chassis had a slightly larger single exhaust - I think the 316i and 318i vs 320i F30 was like this. Then a pair on one side for the 328i, a single on each side for the 335i, then of course quad on the M3. The V8 non-M cars all had the trapezoidal tip with 2 small pipes inside each which was a lovely feature - it all made sense and was easy. The 760Li had a nice chrome rectangular setup to also distinguish it.

Now just about everything has a big tip on each side.
