I'm really wondering why BMW will not proudly remove the front plate and show off their new car without it

Might as well install a mask

Ouch, not helping. 0:18, when it crests the hill, REALLY reinforces the piggish look. And it's clear to me after the disaster fest of the cars live without plates, it really DOES look better WITH a Euro plate than without!!

It looks kind of like 8 series, but actually thanks to the grill it looks more imposing and assertive and dare I say more expensive than 8 series which is $100K+

As a designer - why would you make a huge ugly grill when you know a horizontal license plate will be put right smack in the middle!
This is just epically bad design with no rhyme or reason......

It's not working for me at all. Like the side profile and that's it.

I'm a designer, not of cars, but very good point, especially where most of the world has front plates.

I think the front looks best from this angle:

It looks better because front license plate blocking 1/3 of the grill makes it like 2 pieces
