I can imagine.

It is wearing a hat of some sort

Thanks. I actually have two

The black car is my old daily driver, a 328i that I still own (since 2006)

In 2013 I imported a second one from Germany, my dreamcar, the M3 3.2. (which later turned out to be 1 of 12 AW on Black 3.2 cabrio's).

If we lighten this image you can see the diamond outline of the kidney grille. But also it's depth.

It's got reasonably good prepositions.

A bit more overhang in the rear but some might be the camouflaged rear bumper.

And Audi is reportedly moving away from large grilles. Link is also funny for the first comment.

The C class and E class Mercs make this look old and pretty ugly
I had both the E46 and 92...but the current 4 series looks all wrong in proportion (Ended up with an M2).
This looks even worse from the dimensions.

The question is just how deep is it compared to 3-series, I can see the diamonds like the 340i. Wished it would look like the new 3-series but from your post it is not going to

Is it lower than the license plate in the picture?
