Not saying it doesn't work and on a coupe it doesn't look so off. I just don't like the way it looks on the sedan body. Performance difference for 99% of drivers would not be noticeable.
If that's the case. I'm happy BMW is making decisions on performance rather than looks, which can easily be modified or altered by the consumer.

I agree.

Even the black grilles would be hidden with a dark color choice, go look at a black Audi, you don’t even notice the grilles and they are ginormous. Cosmetics can be addressed in many ways, IMO.

The fact that BMW is making a 6MT sedan with bucket-seats and four doors >>> Any cosmetic issues.

I know I am part of a minority here, but I do not dislike the bigger grill. It sets the car apart from anything else on the road.

What I donot understand is that huge ACC radar in the middle of the vertical grill. That looks so out of place.

Misleading article suggests the production M3 front end has been leaked. It hasn't.

A certain front end, most probably the M4, has been self-evidently leaked, it's pure speculation as to whether it's the M3. I can't see any link between the front end link and the automatic assumption that it's the M3?

Have I missed something ? Someone enlighten me :-)

This denies the single most important principle of aesthetics which is harmonious proportions, and yet pointing that out somehow makes it a personal problem? But hey, feel free to put 16" front / 21" rear on a body that's been designed for a perfectly balanced profile, I'm sure you'll love the planted look

It's not pure speculation when industry insiders are telling us they share the front fascia AND you can plainly, clear as day see the outline on all G80 test mules. It's actually gospel.

At any rate.. this is a cosmetic appearance decision that any owner can easily change.
Looking at the images they look like different designs to me. Obviously different sizes, but I would not read too much into the 19 vs 20 front to rear just yet.

There will also be a $2000 carbon-fiber gold bling version of the license plate necklace. With a $10K 24ct rose-gold option for oligarchs.

Ugh! Just another example that this car was not designed around the grill! Add on top of that a front plate and you've got yourself an incredibly cluttered and messy looking front end

But yes it's large and ugly.

Another perhaps even simpler solution would be to black out parts of the lower portion of the bumper to make the lower part of the grill look like a more conventional intake. In fact, once pictures of the production car are available, I'll bet we see people create some mockups of different ideas.

In any case, we're not talking about a difficult modification. Its really just changing the shape and appearance of a hole in the front of the car. Like I say, if there is demand, the aftermarket will address it.
Yes, and mesh would probably have less restrictions then perforated surface.

People like us will most likely modify if they don't like it.

I personally modified almost every car I owned and it makes the car transform tremendously.

Can't wait to see final results

The only thing that suck is wait. Lol

Yeah I was part of the minority who loved the 4er Concept. But the front end leak definitely took some wind out of the sails. It's just not integrated that well from what I've seen. Looks like a normal BMW front end that they slapped some tall grilles on, unlike the Concept which looked like they formed a cohesive design around the grilles.

Does anyone know if there's going to be a large weight gain? I'm expecting some with the addition of awd to the M cars but hoping weight gain is 75-100 or less. Is that unlikely?

With the current stupid front end design, that's probably the plan.

I would guess at 200kg minimum between AWD and RWD. Probably 100kg when comparing F80 against AWD G80
