I somehow hilariously find this extremely relatable to the grill situation as well as how a good 90% of us reacted.

Bloody fantastic, whatever the top suspension option is for this car I’m getting it. It moves through the corners effortlessly and seems to just eat the undulations. This car is going to be a massive upgrade.

As much as we keep discussing the exterior aesthetics, I can't help but be excited when I see it driving around the 'Ring. Looks great to my untrained eyes.

Im sure Id agree with you if we could see them more clearly

Any chance you can give us a hint on when the press drive event of the prototypes is planned? End of 2019, spring 2020 or later?

Like I said a few weeks ago, if they make this car drive like a maniac it'll distract and overcome the fact that it's just so different and ugly ... we'll see. It's just too bad they could've have accomplished both.

The Grilles give the car its in your face presence. It's certainly not just another 3. Look at how the wheel arches are far more pronounced now. The whole car is broader but meatier than the standard 3.
This is what customers wanted far more presence and more distinguishable features from a standard 3.
When you see it you will(but not all) love it.

I'm excited and refuse to jump on the not buying it bandwagon until I see the finished product. That being said—and while I do like all the things you're saying— I just think that could have still been accomplished with a front end that is less ostentatious. Anyway, it's not out yet so, again, waiting to make my final judgement.

I feel those of us who don't mind the larger grills on the new 7 and X7, and who kinda like the grills on the concept 4, are very likely to fall in love with the new M3/M4 when released. At least that's where I think I am now.

I'm excited now most [probably] know I am in the 'optimistic, like the big-grill idea' category for the G8x; so I think once we see the official press photos of the entire car with the CF roof, M-wheels, wide fenders and arches, and not just a shitty, isolated leak pic of half the grill, it will make sense and the G8x design will work well. More people will get it... if not, give me a big 'ol, grill-sized discount

I always liked the big grille idea and some of the hideous renders didn't phase me because I knew the final package would be balanced and well designed.

After reading about the M2 driver changing from 4th to 3rd when he didn't mean to and trashing his engine; this headline made 🤣

I like hearing the auto trans popping through the gears. It sucks they make automatics shift so bloody fast.

Who still uses an old toothbrush? The Braun Oral B is so much better for getting there.

When the road noise sounds better and louder than the exhaust there is a problem.

Happy to see a manual. Hope it's not AWD.
