Looks terrible in that picture. If the grille was at least 30% smaller and looked like the 3.0 CSL hommage I'd be all about it, but this... ugh.

I would think it would look like this from the 4 series concept they launched. So my next car will definitely be a f80 not this abomination

I thought CSL homage is just as big as this, think the homage looks better because it's slightly slanted (which might not work with pedestrian impact regulation) and doesn't extend all the way down (just a bit above)

This seems to be similar location to where the other leaks are coming from, new 4 series is what it was listed as.

I am a believer and was really getting used to the front end of the concept - even becoming a fan. The over-sized intakes were match for the new grills, but the pic of the production version has undersized intakes making the front end look like a pickup (my M240 has larger intakes). Except for the size of the grills, everything else is off on the production version (take a look at the headlight housing).

Hopefully that's the 430 production version and the M440 will be a bit more like the concept.

There she is! BMW is definitely leaking these. LOL! It looks like the unveiling is around the corner. Somebody find the official G8X Bimmerpost Photoshop and juxtapose it next to this "leaked" front end. Bimmerpost strikes it right yet again with their prediction(s).

I’ve shown the above to a few people, both car and non car people, and they’ve unanimously disliked it, I’m not sure what BMW are currently thinking but with this grille and also the current economic uncertainty round the world, this could be the worst selling M3 ever.

People will still buy them yes, but I’ve never seen a forum react so unanimously in a negative way towards a new design. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out.

SCOTT26 already warned that the front bumper would be toned down and the headlights would be different. I don't know why you didn't believe him.

I believe that is the G80 front end that is photographed (...and it is eerily close to the official Bimmerpost photoshop). The G22 bumper will look different.

Let the incentives open up like a broken dam when the haters move on to different brands.
