There 2 levels of frustration with this hideous design

1. The grill itself. It's ugly, disproportionate etc

2. You can imagine how elegant the car would IF it was just designed with a proportionate grill


With this concept car, the basic lines and posture of the car look great

All of it is killed off and neutralized by that grill

I admire BMW's vision, but the kidneys are just tooo big.

Count me in the nay column.

Car is ok overall but I can't live with that grill. Didn't like Lexus or Audi when they went big grill and don't like this. People will still buy this but have to wonder if sales volume will exceed F32/F82, not only because of grill but hasn't the overall size grown too big. It's like a 6 series now which was always a bit too big for a two door. Gotta grab a 2er or a new 4er Gran Coupe IMO.

I'm speechless; no matter how you slice it, that front-end is hideous and I can't believe someone at BMW actually green-lit it.

They must be employing new folks on their design team or is trying to rock the boat with something "unique" because nothing about this concept screams BMW legacy.

But they will still sell, regardless because it's a new BMW, so it's all the same, either way.

F82 looks sooooo old in comparison. Dated like the E46.

New 4 series looks amazing

Absolutely love the design, at least BMW has shown some balls to do something radical, personally I am sick and tired of all of the "vanilla" designs out there. I will be placing a deposit at my local dealer soon!!
Well done BMW- Thank you!!!

All I'm picturing is the active kidney grill on the production version, which is going to make this 10x worse

Calling the front ugly would be putting it nicely. This grill is f*cking hideous. Fire the morons who are percolating this shit (albeit functional) design language to the major models of today's BMW lineup.

Shame because the rest of the car looks amazing. As with every other model they've put that abomination of a grill on.

Welp it's been a good run. I can't believe they actually signed off on this.

Mercedes and Audi must be salivating at the opportunity they have now.

To those saying it will look better in black/shadowline, no it won't. You can't change the ugliness of that giant grill. Don't expect it to have vertical bars either. That will most likely be reserved for the M4. This will look similar to the M440 or whatever it's going to be called.

I just love this car. Grills are amazing.
If you don't like it, don't buy it. There are plenty of caddilacs and hondas

Nice concept car
front end somewhat inspired by the i vision dynamics concept
bold & different design yet powerfull & recognisable
I'm looking forward to seeing the production car

ps. it probably looks (even) better IRL

Hm......
Big grill look cool in a8, s klass.
This 4 is disappointing and nasty, the grill, the front bumper...
Bmw lost identity with appealing to the 9 year old kids. They could have named it MEGATRON. And that is cool for like z4 idea, but not for a 3 coupe 4 how they name it now.

F82 looks collectible now, pity the interior is so ....huh.
E46 is still the benchmark to beat as a package.

I'm in the minority here but it's closer to the 3.0 Hommage than I expected relative to all the recent camo threads we've seen. Bold new path forward. Gone are the E46 days, but I like it. Can't wait to see a (tamed) production M version. SCOTT26

Hahaha. What a shitshow BMW is now. This thing is absolutely terrible. I wish I could unsee that hideous grille.

I showed my wife the pics this morning and she was like WTF is that monstrosity. Then she goes "I'm glad you clear bra'd your ///M4 because your gonna have to keep it"

It's either keep the F82 or Porsche for me. BMW is dead to us with this trash.
