I (thankfully) live in a jurisdiction that does not require front plates. Without one, the grille, I think, is more obvious and glaring. For better or worse, it's what drove me to the M340i instead of going back to the coupe I was accustomed to with my e92.
No this is the marketing dept saying "wtf is that? Quick cover it up. Put a number plate over it or something."
