Besides that where the hell would you put the huge US plates?

The last picture with chrome makes you really stare at it. Lol
Agree with US plates, there is absolutely no room for it. Literally they are huge and would completely mess the look.
Wondering what size the grill is?
No way I'd ever rock a front plate regardless.
You have to in Iowa. It's a fine every time.
I'd seriously be moving to another state.

Neither! We will see the new 4 Series, which will have the same grills as the ///M3 and ///M4.

Anyway, black seams to hide the grill better then any other color.
I think that was the exact reasoning behind the release of these renders: to pre-shock the enthusiast core before the official release. It works too!

Just like the Z4, and new 3er, there will be a much nicer grill available as a ///M Performance Accessory ‼️

So in your opinion, "much nicer" must mean black.....which we all already expect to be available anyway. I wouldn't personally call that "much nicer." It would just be less visually intrusive. The size/shape won't change.

May be I'm not getting the joke. Can someone tell me if this is really based on spyshots or the author is trying to be critical on the recent "big grill" design trend?

Shots I've seen seem to indicate a honeycomb-like pattern, sort of like the G20 M340i and new Z4 grills. Not straight up horizontal lines/slats.

Go look at the multiple other threads and you'll understand why horizontal slats are being referenced.

It looks like the front grille is a liquor cabinet.

Here you go. This is most likely the production/finished grill without the M Performance treatment (...which could be a more mesh design; that remains to be seen).
