As of right now I do not like the grille, however I will reserve final judgement for when I see the production version in person.

These things tend to become more liked by people as time goes on, but until that happens I guess every G8X thread will be dominated with talk about how people don't like the grille.

Honestly I canít believe they have ruined the 4 series and M3/M4 with this awful look.

Even though the G80/G82 will come with 6MT, I am staying with my on order 2020 F82. There is no way Iíd spend any money on this car when it looks this hideous and fugly.

It's either keep the F82 or Porsche for me. BMW is dead to us with this trash.
LOL hold on to the dated F82. I didn't think pep boyz made a bra for the M4, or am I misreading?
Good Luck with your new Lexus/Infiniti monstrosity or am I misreading your love of Japanese vehicles with terrible front ends?

Yup. Exactly the same thing I was thinking.

New Vette = Sexy Badass

New 4er/M3/M4 = Horrible looking Mess

+1 for GM

Nail. Coffin.

After 15 years and 6 BMWs, I'm out. Will enjoy my F80 for a few more months and look back on my time with it and my other BMWs fondly.

Snagged a Nov build GLC63 allocation late yesterday afternoon. Time for something new.

The 5 Series has been on the market since late 2016. BMW typically schedules LCI for release roughly one and half years after launch.

No less so that you have considered acquiring more knowledge about topics on which you form opinions before presenting those opinions to the world as snide comments, I'd imagine.

I must be minority, as a g30 5 series owner (I.e. the most play safe bmw styling out there at the moment) I think this looks pretty good, too bad they couldn't slant the grill like the csl concept (probably due to the damping biting pedestrian regulations)

Wow. I guess I had hoped it would be a joke. The huge kidneys look ridiculous on the new 7, and now this design looks totally disconnected from known BMW reality to me.

As a fan of BMW design for almost 30 yrs, I guess I have to describe my feelings/reaction as almost a feeling of betrayal. Why would they do this? This looks so out of character for BMW. Extreme change for the sake of what? It does not make sense to me.

It's extremely polarizing, and not in a good way.

I love the side and specially the back, but the giant front grill just doesn't fit and this car.

I can see it on bigger cars but not on this one.

Sad day today

We all joked when the 8 series came out how they'd eventually consume the whole bumper with the grille like the attached photo. I didn't think BMW would actually do it though.
