^^^this. If i wasnt already familiar with it or already a car guy, id need to see the roundel to know its a bimmer. Nothing about this brings bmw to mind when we look at it. That garish grille, its kinda the only thing i see when i look at the car.

I miss handsome and gorgeous bmws.

kinda reminds me of a rabbit - the roundel is the nose, the "kidney grills" being the teeth, the bumper vents being the whiskers - just slap some ears on the roof and you're ready for Easter!
It doesn't help that the wheels remind me of woven baskets...

I like the wheels. They remind me of the mid 1990's style BBS wheels that I used to drool over when I was a kid.

Make this looking like a pickup truck or El Camino for Americans and probably won't sell well in China.


That is one ugly car..

I just realized they practically eliminated the hofmeister kink. Disappears in some angles. In fact, the only thing that looks like a BMW are the side mirrors for me. If one clicks thru in the link above, there are examples of the current F32 and the new 4 series.

I get needing to spice up the design (the comments about nouveau rich Chinese makes absolute sense - hard to stand out in a country of 1.4B people...), but why try to take away the traditional cues?

Are we forgetting history chaps.




BMW 328


1956-1960 BMW 503


This is definitely a throwback into the catalog to when they first started making sporty cars.

That does not mean anybody has to like it, but vertical grills are definitely in their wheelhouse.

Ainít a throw back to ****! Those are long but narrow. The new grill makes up like 70% of the whole damn bumper!
