I don't know how to feel about those grilles yet, but this is what I think of when I see the thumbnail of that video...



So it's safe to say I'm not leaning towards liking them.

It's still a huge nope..
This time it's an easy wait for the LCI (which is always the right thing to do in oder to avoid all early adopter issues..)

It doesn't look much like a BMW anymore with the exception of the headlights due to the halo look.

The profile looks soft. Minus the strong shoulder line through the door handles and no Hof-kink. It looks quite feminine actually.

I really wonder how hard it would be to take the 3 series front and stick it on the 4 series?

M styling is a bit odd, not that functional, rear deck is a bit too small, canards if they go on the car should be at least functional somewhat.

The grill is very much in your face and I am saddened that that M parts are not making it smaller.

The car looks good from rear & side. Maybe they can rename the 440i to Butherface. lol.

The best M performance part would be a new front end.

No disrespect but I don't care how well this performs. This car looks like shit.

Perhaps this, adapted for the G22, would provide a distraction from the rodent teeth?

If you're gonna do canards, DO SOME EFFING CANARDS!

G8x is looking like it'll have to be Sapphire black paint with M Perf black grille or bust for me. Or shell out some coin and see what IND can do. I honestly believe the ///M division wants all new M cars on the road to have the black on black aggressive look. Once I see black on black in person I'll see what my actual impression is.

Ugly from the front, generic from all other angles.

I'd definitely buy one... IF it were around $25k. I'd put up with the ugly ass face if it were extraordinarily inexpensive.

Pick two:
Attractive
Fun
Inexpensive

Someone here recently referred to "East German funk" as a design gestalt- I think this turn of phrase is nothing short of brilliant. Unfortunately, the 4er is absolutely bereft of any said "funk;" it doesn't seem to have any German left in it at all.
