Yes.

4-door M3 have shared the same front-end as the 2-door since the E9X.

People always said that M cars were too tame. With the new 4 there was more opportunities to bring the appearance to a new era.

When you see both M3 and M4 you will see how more radical these cars are in regards to proportion, stance and in case of the M4 it's more dynamic profile allowing for its inclusion for Motorsport.
Definitely M4 has more muscle than a conventional M440i Coupe.

The new Aerodynmics offer a new interpretation of the current look that has been around for almost two decades. Again highly sculpted to provide function over form.

The new exclusive to the M3/M4 hood symbolises Motorsport history especially with Coupes adapted for Motorsport such as the E9,E30 and E24. The lines recessed at the top of the grille allows the bonnet to be higher when it runs along the centre of the car without resorting to a power dome.

The competition Wheel design was shown in a recent spy photograph of the M3.

Both M3 and M4 will cater to more performance and aerodyanmic appearance down the line of this generation.

The problem is, 90%< of owners just get these cars as daily drivers and don't track them. So their primary focus is appearance. Which this car is severely lacking.

Not for me. I get the nod to the past but no. This isn't right. The lines are all off, the science may different for performance and handling; but as others have said, my god.

Enthusiats are a very very small piece of the overall pie. There is a handful of people on these forums that hate the design and claim to not ever be willing to buy one but there will be many millions more average Joe's out there who will part with the money for these machines. So you hate it, we get it but you're in the minority. The sales of the cars will prove it as they have been for years.

Also BMWs sell on badge alone even with controversial styling. So clearly the people buying these cars must not have an issue with them.

I really am not excited about this car and BMW's design language in general. Someone needs to take the damn pen away from Hooydonk, he is clearly drunk.
Dont worry an optional CF hood with real vents will be available for 5000

Since when is a hood indent a fake grill?

There is no blind grill or intake to be seen.

Just a design indent.

This so much this, pretty much sums up quite a lot of people on this forums, who gets this type of cars they do not track them they only drive them during certain times of the year, cause winter takes to hard toll on them even though all these cars are tested for winter seasons.

So imagine this a car of this type loaded with decent amount of equipment landing at a price of 92 560$ that only will be driven pretty much on weekends and only during the 6-7 months of spring/summer/early autumn.

How big of a crowd of car owners is that, yet they are the most vocal on these forums.

And if this crowd of car owners is huge witch it probably could be i have no idea, then people have either way to much money in their pockets and way to much free time on their hands to focus so much energy on disliking a certain design element of a car.

The new M3/M4 will probably be very good and loads of people commenting on these forums "I wont buy it, yada yada, i will go over to porsche, yada yada" so well then go on, but please on your way to Porsche witch is probably great cars also, please close down your account on these forums and stop spewing your toxic opinion on these forums, we have already heard it and the jokes and your complaints about the new design are getting old fast.

Did they really have to already disfigure the barely fresh bold iconic new front fascia identity of the 4er?!




Whereas the 4er's headlights connect to the grille corners via a clearly visible crease which creates a slightly shaded area underneath that gives the front fascia a focused/frowned/mean prey bird look that fully makes up for any potential awkwardness related to the vertical grille novelty, that same headlight-to-grille area on the M3/M4 is as flat and smooth as an extreme leftist's brain surface and creates a dull boring 80s-90s generic Japanese sedan gaze, which is further enhanced by the empty borderless jutting out grille that looks like an organ has been ripped out. This is literally appalling.
