You can clearly see what Scott sketched months ago. They are two separate very tall grills.
Basically I am looking forward to the vertical kidneys (didn't thought that I will tell this one day), however for me it depends on how they are designed:

:-) CSL Hommage-like, typical separated grills
:-I connected in the middle ,but separate grills (like m2 comp)
:-( i4 concept-like/kia style

What I am worrying about is the placement of the front number plate - BMW kidneys separated by the license plate? I absolutely can't imagine this.

It certainly is, but it's a testament to the brand that everyone will explode when it's finally revealed.

The front plate will probably need to either be tow hook mount, in lower side grill spaces, or drilled to bumper on sides. Google Giulia quad front plate.

Also come to think of it, the vertical grille is likely a spin-off from the Alfa.

There's a lot of grill banter, but no enough G80 hip banter....come on, am I the only one feeling the carry over hips? It's still my favourite thing about the F80, and second favourite thing about the E90, and the latest images confirm the aggressive bodywork remains.

There's always someone thing to lament, but I'm confident based on what's known so far, and the heat the team at M must be feeling, that the G80 is going to be their A game, will be good enough to get my $$$ and will remain the segment benchmark, hopefully with comp spec ability from the outset.

Looks like the variance in the front to rear fender gap also carries over. I guess it's a balance related matter, I'm sure someone can educate me on that...but I wish they'd drop the front to match the rear, it's seriously messing with my OCD. The fact the some of us are changing out front springs only on the F80 tells me they should have a go at resolving that one!

If the G80 miraculously turns out to be a dud, I guess it's M5C here I come.

I know for many M3 guys an M5 is simply too big, and affordability is certainly getting tight....but who else is on the cusp?
I'm definitely on the cusp as well but I would be going M2 route not M5...

I don't mind the big, tall grill design but what concerns me is that a majority of the grill will be blocked off making it look pretty goofy.

The above pic of the G23 vert makes it seem like the grill will have a chunky "mesh" pattern with most of the mesh filled and not an actual grill vent.

I’ll just wait until LCI when they will make the grills much much larger. Worked so well on the 7.

I imagine as time passes and ICEs dwindle the kidney will be a solid design element..

If I have a choice between M3 and M5 and M3 is not up to it, likely will go porsche and take the hit. If M3 is good stick w it.
M2, again might as well get porches.

Lol well I don't want to downgrade. Porsche is at least consistent and new gt3 rs has all solid bushings which also makes it 3 times the m3 price. Ugh lol only 299000 Canadian fully loaded without tax. Wheels sets are a bargain at only 9000 w tires.

Some of us can and will eventually make the move (once I dont need a baby seat in the backseat), but I like the M3's functionality vs. a P car. I got a 1 year old and plan on having another soon. I had oscillated between a 911 Carrera S and an F80 back in 2016 but ended up with the F80 and I am so happy I did.
