The side looks so much better without the side vents.

Weird. The grills do not look that objectionable on video. It would be interesting to see the design ideas for the grills that were rejected.

I really need to see what the NA market front end looks like without the euro front plate. That said it looks a lot better here than in the release pictures... strange.

I'm cheering for you BMW, Klaus and the new 4! I'm still not a fan of the grill though.

With a black grille in a dark colour...maybe liveable? Feel dirty saying this but I think we’re gonna get used to it.

Now that there's video of the thing, i think it looks MUCH better than initially. The front i mean. The sides and rear look too much like a Infiniti. The regular 3 series coupe and 4 series has always looked less aggressive, more subtle, and a little too soft and feminine for my tastes. This car does have a more aggressive front facia. Reminds me of the new e class coupe. Just take that ///M off the side of the car though.

Looks so much better without the chrome grille surrounds.

Couldn't quite put my finger on which car that side profile reminds me of but you hit it right on the hid. Definitely Infiniti.
