OMG the Subaru/Kia kidney grille is horrible.

On a more positive note, the wheels look easy to clean. And I am sure the 2010s Bimmer fans will love the taillights.

Agreed not really very BMW. Needs to be complete Murdered-out to hide the bad in the good.

The headlight designer and the grill designer seem to have not really worked very well together.

Looks just as bad as the rest of the G20s. Take the grill off and nobody could tell this is a BMW

I like the rear lights, seats and the fact that newer model x-drives are no longer on stilts. That grill's unforgivable though :/

That grille is stupid. And why can't Bmw make these "dark chrome" black? Much better in black than chrome.

Not going to lie that grill is awful in my opinion. I hope they have an all blacked out version to hide it

Feeling very underwhelmed.

Busy exterior and tacky interior. Where has BMW gone?

If the 4 is like this too I'm out.

The facelift C43 has become a whole lot more appealing.

that line coming out from the headlight kink into the intake really bothers me. It just distracts so much. What happened to "use fewer lines, and the lines we use are purposeful"

Also, the tires are Michelin Pilot 4S but they are RFT yes?
There are currently no RFT tires except the PS2.

That grill looks terrible in pictures. I'll have to go to the auto show and see it in person to judge.

I'm going to say it now I think the exterior designers are ruining the car. The kidney design with that strange pattern looks awful. I'm glad I have my 2018 M2.
