Unless they fire the design director, no change. He has been clear in interviews that he thinks that the new bugs bunny grills are the cat's meow.

Not the case for me. I am getting near the point where I would consider a new car. This one is just ugly.

I don't have any issue with modernizing the grill. Even with taking a bold step with it. But this is ridiculous. It really makes the car unattractive.

On FB and Instagram, I keep asking BMW if they can turn around a grill redesign in time for the 2022 model year :-). As you might expect, no response.

And you seriously expected a response to that request on social media right now? You might see an LCI by 2024-2025, but definitely not before the i4 is on the street for a couple years.

I'm just one opinion, and this isn't to detract from opinions of others, but I'm one who actually decided against buying a 440i and instead ordered an M340i. My previous BMW was an e92 coupe, and I would have preferred sticking with a 2 door. I occasionally, but not frequently, have a 3rd or 4th passenger. I generally prefer a coupe body style.

For me, it's not only the grille. It's the fact that the lines and dimensions have evolved into something too similar to other cars. The headlight shapes (which were my favorite styling feature of the e92) seem a little too thin and slanted. I prefer smaller cars, and I would have chosen an M240i coupe instead, although there are things about the M340i that I prefer over the 2 series.

Again, just one person's opinion. I have no doubt the new 4 series is a great car, and I'm proud and grateful that BMW continues to offer several 2 door coupe models when other manufacturers are ditching them. The world is better for it.

It's easy to poke fun at the grille design, but that doesn't mean it was a styling mistake necessarily. I'm eager to see what BMW continues to do with its styling innovation in the future. I won't like every design they come out with, but I don't like all of their designs throughout history, either. Not everything can be an e9 coupe.

3erMan, Yours is a logical opinion and I appreciate it. I just happen to like the new lines of the 4 series models. I find them bold and refreshing, but I can still see the heritage in the cars. I also liked the M340iX and almost bought a Mineral Gray 2020 model off the lot last month, but it lacked a few options I wanted... so In for a penny in for a pound, ordered the M440iX.

It sounds like we both did okay.

No more, OMG why did they do that? It's almost as if BMW wants the current F32 owners to hold on to their cars a bit longer.
All we can do is hope, I was really wanting the new 4-series coupe to be a winner. I bet they will it change for the LCI but that depends on sales and feedback from whomever they listen to
