They should stop calling the 4 front grille "kidney" grille. With the size and shape of that thing, they should start calling it the Lung Grille. I think that's the more appropriate name.

Insist on being correct? Isnt it ronic that a BMW produced video got that wrong.

Wondering why Domagoj Dukec didn't get rid of the roundel as an obsolete design element too.

Because now that's the only part that identifies it as a BMW.

All I can say is no matter how many times I see that grill, I see pressed peaches.

The pattern of the “propeller” in BMW logo is NOT the same as the diamond shaped lozenges in the Bavarian flag. The colors yes, but that’s it.

Maybe BMW is trying to appeal to a new target market with this car and let its loyalists transition to its other models? That would be a smart move too.

For example, I was anticipating a G80 daily, but now considering an F90 daily.

I have to say, in this spec and colour (blue) alone, it's actually grown on me. Still hate it in the base specs though.

Pretty F'n close though!. One can easily see were it came from within the flag. Your arguing semantics as BMW themselves have stated that the previous notion that it was a representation of a "propeller" was not true but rather it is a derivative logo based on the colours of the flag.
