I agree. The grill look like JAWS. Do not like it at all. Previous models grill looks much classier.

Showed it to bunch non BMW guy, there is one guy who actually think it's great looking car (with the new grill) and grill is definitely not too big might be a bit too small (he drives Audi Q5 and Volvo XC90), so I guess BMW successfully capture new buyer...

Wait...wasn't that Chris Bangle? Didn't that car help to coin the term Bangle Butt?

On another note, I like the E65 LCI much better than the original. BMW LCIs in general tend to be a win in my book...I feel like they're skimping out on me when they release brand new models, leaving all the good stuff for the refreshed car
Most people seem to either forget or not realize this but the vaunted E39 5-Series was developed under Chris Bangle and so a plethora of other BMW models highly revered by purists before the flame surfaced models made their debut in the mid 2000's.

I'll reserve judgment when I see it in person. I believe the 7er could benefit from this until the all new model arrives.

Some of the flamed surface models worked like the E86 Z4 coupe and 6 series but others like the 7 of that era did not, the 7 was always handsome until the E65 the F01 was a bit plain and the G11 was better if not that great a design, at least it's handsome in a large F30 kinda way, not sure the grilles add anything.

Bangle and van Hooydonk worked together for years on these designs, and to be fair to them they always look better in the flesh than in photos which to the owner is what counts.

As for the e39 it was already designed by the time Bangle was in charge he signed it off rather than overseeing its design as he did with the e60.

If that grille gets any bigger it will look like a Buick.

Such a gentleman!

Insults do not change the fact the car grill is ugly as hell and the new BMW grill design language is a disaster. Even the fanboys in this forum tend to agree on this...

Now, let me tend to my sheep as even the ugliest "sheep grill" looks a lot better then this new 7 series!

I like it too!

It's acceptable to me that people don't like it, but its unacceptable that some are thinking others should think the same.

The market will finally decide...
