    I don’t mind it. Would look a lot better without the stupid front license plate.

    Rolls Royce grills are getting smaller, while BMW grills are getting larger.

    The long-time director of BMW's M project now works for Hyundai. Keep an eye on Hyundai's N (Nürburgring) project vehicles. HH

    I've never been too concerned about the grills on any vehicle.

    But everybody knows the difference between a BMW and a Porcupine I'm sure.

    I'll take it over the boring lozenges they were selling in the 2000s. It's like they decided to "blend in" with cars half their price.

    I agree. They sorta lost that BMW "look" after that. I had a '98 and loved driving it but hated paying for tires and brakes.
