I know I'm in the minority, but I love the look of chrome trim with m-sport trims instead of shadowline. In my opinion, it makes the car look more expensive and works really well with dark colors like black.

The side profile looks like my old G37S sedan.

This car needs the bigger wheel option. I'm assuming these are 18's?

+1 There is definitely something Infiniti-esq about the visual cues of the new G20. Well said!

I could be wrong but I assume these are the dynamic grills just like the one on X3 M40i, they open up for more air flow when you put the car in sport mode and I believe there is another separation button/option to open the grills.

This is an m340, judging from the front bumper, right? I thought that the 340 only received the mesh grill? Is this because this model is in pre-production?

I really want to like the g20 styling
I dare say it looks good in black
because black hides the lines of the car best
and yea if any series needs the 19s and 20s, the G-series seem to really need that.. big grille .. teeny weeny wheels? errrr
..um yea I still hate the grille even in black

It's a G20 with M sport package. M340 have slanted rectangular exhausts.

The grills are better than the stock M340i grills (yuk), but the rest is tacky at best...

Front end looks way too effing busy.
Looks like the design philosophy was "if it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing".

I agree with you on this as well.

Oh I see, so the m sport package adds the regular grill and round tail pipes

Indeed, also on blue cars. However with this new design of the hofmeister kink, it looks horrendous!

Nope.

My guess is this is a 320d xDrive with M Sport package, judging from the ride height, and the visually smaller dual exhaust than on the 330i.
Or could be 330i , but not M340.

It's definitely has more presence than the F30 for better or worse. I think the chrome accents make the car look more upscale. That said, the grille frame is overbearing. I am digging that little red car behind.

Give it a proper black grille, bigger alloys, bigger blue brakes, bigger exhausts outlets and stick the M340 lump in it. Bob's your uncle how the m340 should look....

Like another poster said, if you took the (horrendous) kidney grilles away you wouldn't even be able to tell it was a BMW. Really sad to see the design team decide to melt their brand in with all the other (((luxury))) brands.

Look at the women in the picture posted in the original post, even she can't stand those kidney grilles!
