Now Adrian Van Hooydonck and his team are on drugs. What a monstrosity of a gril they are imposing on us and our children now! This is so NOT BMW at all!!

Why don't they fire the guy here and now!?

Also, it would have been ok, when they didn't pull the grill above the lights I guess, but apparently, they missed the obvious and they did. Adrian has to be a moron, I knew already back then but they still let him ruin the brand. Ouughhh...

Can't BMW designers turn the whole front in to just grill for super cooling? They wouldn't need intercooler!

Both manufacturer's new models will have full electric options. That being said, development of fully new platform must not be done either. Wireless charging is also coming with these electric/hybrid models. MB is beating BMW to it, as it appears at the moment.

It seemed this just came out and already they are at LCI. Compare this to Toyota and Nissan that basically make the same car for over a decade.

I did a Photoshop nip/tuck as to what it should be. But than again it's too similar to the current G11 minus the sharp angles.

I'm all for the large imposing grille as long as it's executed properly.

Great job! Looks a lot more balanced!

The rest of this LCI is so gorgeous, and they just had to ruin it with the over-the-hood grill.

Seriously, if they woul dhave just had a normal basic hoodline, this would be out of the park:

I completely agree...

He is already responsible of the ugly E65 7-Series and he managed to do even worse...

This brand (which I was a fan of) has been screwing up for the past 15 years.
