What if the G11 was designed with a smaller nose

I wouldn't bother doing the render myself but somebody did!

From Reddit user AGARAN24 https://old.reddit.com/user/AGARAN24

Much sleeker design IMO...

Much better look with the smaller grille. I had an order placed on a 2020 and luckily had the opportunity to switch to a 2019 when I saw the release photos. It may grow on me but I'm not taking the risk.

what they could do is to remove the fake top grill part from the hood, and leave the actual grill the same (if it is technically required to be this big). At least this would make sense. The top fake part of the grill makes no sense, aesthetically or functionally.

The 7 needs more sculpted flanks it's very slab sided to my eyes, when it's this long it needs some detailing down the sides to increase the visual interest.

The render looks like 🤢
Let's not pretend we're smarter than the BMW designers 😉

I just bought a 2019 750i xDrive yesterday and I can't tell you how happy I am that it has the traditional understated kidney grills. I saw this poster on the showroom wall and pointed out to the sales manager how BMW grills used to look and mentioned how ridiculous the jumbo grills from the new 7-Series and X7 would look if they were added to this artwork. Maybe someone with the necessary skills can update the picture to include the new grills for comparison.

Like my F0. Tat side line/crease is something I really like. But I still say this LCI is significantly nicer than current.
