I like it.

I feel bad for those that require a front U.S plate though.

That really does look disgusting with the plate (still awful without it though)

That is pretty bad. Good thing as of next month Ohio officially doesn't require them. Not that I've had one for the past 15 years.

They have been showing this grill for quite a while now, and everyone hates it. It makes every other hideous grill look better. Even the Edsel!

There is not a snowballs chance one hell I would buy one of those, which is a shame, because a 4 series could have been on my radar for my next car as I try to save money now that I'm retired..

US front license plate makes it even worse. What were the designers thinking? Surely they must have looked at the concept car with US front plate? I already run without a FLP and in Palo Alto, CA they ticket you if you park on the street without a FP. Ticket costs $90.00 or fix it. I never put a FP on my car and never will. I do wear a face mask in consideration for other people. But a FP, no way. I park in parking buildings with frontend to the wall.

Back to the grill design, oh I can't. 🙅🏻

Said it before and I'll say it again - we should all start petitions in each state to do away with front plates.

They're fine with motorcycles not having front plates, the only reason they want them on cars is for revenue generation + tickets. They say it can assist with finding stolen cars via license plate scanners, but the vast majority of the reason for front plates is revenue via tickets (either for not having the front plate or for traffic cameras).

Reminds me of when Clarkson would imitate the Jaguar grill by scrunching his lips. Looks like the same can be done for the 4er.

Hideous either way but I think the license plate helps by partially hiding the Edsel grill. Now if we can get a license plate to entirely covger the grill............................................. ..........................

Maybe, to me it reminds me of either a hitler stash or having something stuck in your teeth. Either way, ugly regardless.

Looks good. It'll look great in person and once it becomes the new norm, people will stop crying about the grille. Exactly like they did with Audi singleframe grilles.

People still cry about bangle on here a decade later. I imagine that will stay true with this new era of design.

It's ugly either way! I was hoping it would grow on me. But the only thing that grew was those grills. 🤢🤢🤢

I do like the rest of the car however.

Just unnecessary space that could've been trimmed off.
