Someone made this render and I think this should have been the overall design cues.

In the new M440 they did a decent job of blending the sensor with the overall design of the grill. Not sure why they didn't try to do something similar for the M3/M4.

I was curious about this as well, considering what they did for the 4 it is certainly a hang up. But the perspective I have taken after looking at the real life images next to humans is
- mixed in with the gloss black real grill vs the matte camo cars it stands out less, but is still noticeable (shiny black lens matches surrounding gloss)
- the prominence in renders and some spy photos is exaggerated, for whatever reason there is a tendency to use or render an angle level to the grills like taking a photo knee high and wide lens
-the actual location is shin height and that part of the grill is actually bending back toward The car so the sensor in real life is low and is recessed vs the more prominent parts of the design.
-considering what they did for the 4 I assume they were technically incapable of continuing the bar across the lens for the M3/m4 grill
-my opinion is it's odd but likely something few will notice, especially in passing

Haaa, i was thinking the same thing. The front also reminds me of the Alfa Giulia.

It seem like BMW is saving most of you good folks a lot of money which isn't bad a thing. Money in your pocket is good.

I enjoy the lawnmower sound of my stock F80. Screw you guys I am going home! Flawless through a wonderful five years. S55 engine just behind S65 in terms of engineering. I want the G80, but I love my DCT. If I wanted a M5, I would have bought the F90...I don't want it. Too big and too heavy, despite unreal numbers on competition model.

PDK anyone...

Tourings and Sedans are the new sport coupes. Now bmw realize that they haven her benchmark position at the sports tourers, not the 911's.

The new forms and lines of coupes with the mega grills are for us european buyers an horrible story. But a really good chance for Tourings next.

Specially the touring can be a great coup in this endless m3 coupe timeline!

Go for it, touri!!! ❤

Seeing the car at Metlife Stadium, I couldn't help but wonder why the center inlets on the lower bumper were carbon fiber but the outer inlets were shadowline / gloss black, any insight from anyone on that?
