We'll see who is all talk and who stands by their word and moves to Porsche or some other marquee.
Likely the same ratio who made good on the promise to move to Canada after the last election...
...LOL! ...and then got offended when asked why they hadn't moved yet.

Right, but I took it as the G20 "upper" grills were there as a decoy of sorts and the bottom "lower" grill section was the real deal... it's all for naught anyway since we'll see the concept in a few hours but this was more or less me confirming the big grill stance
You'd be correct Sir! Upper decoy, lower real deal.......even though it sort of looks like the lower portion is a cover over the true lower grill. Damn camo! Lol!
You clearly have way to much time on your hands.

I have nothing but mad respect for you sir.

When I get pulled over I'm about as nice as you could possibly ever imagine...

And you wouldn't believe how many warnings I've gotten accordingly from simply being respectful.

The phrase, "You'll get more bees with honey than with vinegar.", harbors a lot of truth.

I liked the earlier rendering with the thinner, more angular grille. This is shit. The height is fine but the width in the middle makes it look bloated. You either do tall and slim or wide and slim. Doing both at the same time doesn't work, imo. Even worse though, are the several appendages, openings, whatever on the bumper. What a goddamn mess.

Sadly, IT IS gonna look like this and frankly I think, this = shit.

It was not much about comparing, but more to say it could've been worse.

I was considering M340i, but this looks way better than standard 3 series or M340i. So I would get M440i GC instead, just to get this design. I think it’s great: it has a very distinct character, it’s aggressive and very cool looking.

Whoever designed those grills should be taken out back and shot. It looks like an alfa romeo gone wrong.

I don't think it's gonna look like this, but hey, who knows? :

The design chief just retired.

I'm pretty sure that the designer of the Edsel said roughly the same thing about Ford...

You're probably right. :P The BMW hysteria got into my veins and now I'm inflicted. I'm starting to like the nostrils. Shoot me! Lol!

The M division always had a way of taking a pedestrian 3 series and completely transforming the M version to look mean, sporty, etc. I don't want to end up on Sedan Clan's list but God please tell me they didn't do this to the M3.
