    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.

    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.
