Wagon may make up for this but I may just get a roof rack for my m2 instead

GREAT RENDERS

This is by far the ugliest m3 ever created and it just keeps getting uglier by the day.

I can usually find redeeming qualities in most designs but I just don't see it here. Every single part looks like a huge downgrade to me visually. It's not just the grills, it's the underwhelming headlights, hood, and really confused bumper.

The F80 really became an instant classic next to this.

they could have at least put a fake sensor on the opposite side of the grill to make it look a bit more balanced.

Agreed. I'm grilled out. Just hope for a revisit in a couple of years.

Welp, it's still busy as hell but at least it is slightly more cohesive than the black-plastic laden front of the regular 4-series...

I really like thIs photo below because it adds a human for perspective, I feel like the renders set the grills as larger than life, but in reality with the way the hood tapers down most of the grill is below the knee. I don't really spend that much time staring at shoe level. I think real life the design will work nicely.

Exactly... if you look at all the videos and photos of the G22 and G8x with humans you can see the scale. These grills are not exactly huge, just vertical to the previous models horizontal grills and not really higher.

They were forced to place the sensor array in an awkward position because of their stupid grill design.

Is this a joke? This is gotta be the ugliest car I've seen. I'm keeping my F80 forever then.

Audi sensors in fog light positions makes a lot of sense to improve this BMW catastrophe, highlighted by that offset sensor.

Or of course just avoid the ACC.
