Love the smooth body lines. Not a lot of sharp edges that you see too often today. The grill fascination is interesting. Drove Audi for about 10 years and they were the first to start making the grills bigger back in early/mid 2000's. If I remember the Audi designer went to Lexus and now we see big grills on their cars. Tons of sharp edges/flicks. Over designed look to my eyes. Hope MB does not follow this trend.

Yeah, I think you're right. For the others it seems to work better but for BMW, not so much. Of course that's just my opinion.

Looks like Euros now chasing Japanese design. Rear looks horrible with the monstrous diffuser.

If it was narrower it would work. These BMW grills are horrendous. Who are these designers? Children?

Possibly I'm not sure who they are but what they should be is unemployed. Then they wonder why BMW has basically been trailing in sales to the likes of Mercedes and others.

Something about this grill really bothered me and I couldnít put me finger on it until now. It reminds me of Hitlerís mustache. How unfortunate lol.
