Are you with Chris? Do you think this is look is going to be a grower? Or do you think it'll never fully settle?

The Lexus grill, which this reminds me of, has never grown in me. The cars are otherwise gorgeous, but that front end is quite bad. You know it’s bad when, before it even hits the streets, the aftermarket is already gearing up to replace one of the biggest changes on a new model. Did they even do focus group testing ?

To be honest, at first glance I didn't like the new M4 and M3 either. But now I love that these two cars, they clearly differentiate themselves from all other brands. You can see at a glance that it is a BMW

The kidneys were usually part of a larger grill structure, and because it’s iconic they are making it the feature; the whole grille. It’s a departure in that sense, and the proportions on some new car designs are comical. It will be scaled back again to be tasteful.

Stationwagons are a typical west europe thing. You would say it’s the smaller variant of the SUV that’s popular in the states. I stick to a proper sedan or a coupé as I like cars being elegant rather than for the utility.

I am saying this as someone who really hates the new front end. However, I have to agree with Chris' remarks on how it will grow on people. BMW have always had this knack for refusing to create retro designs even when people beg for them, instead insisting that new future looks are better. They design a car that looks like nothing anyone has seen before, and the reaction is as negative as you could expect. But guess what, the car ends up selling well. And even more than that, 10 years later, we begin to like them. I used to think the E60, E63/4 and E65 looked awful, but now I have an appreciation for them looking back. To think that BMW had the nerve to induce such stylistic whiplash by going from the taut and composed looks of the E38 to the wavy and flowing shape of the E65. It's hard to think that the BMWs before 2000 are just one generation behind those that came in after 2000. So, do I think the new M3 and 4 series look awful? Yes. I even saw a 420i last week and the rear was the only slightly redeeming part of it. But I must refrain from having such confidence in the belief that it will always be an ugly car. It will grow on people. And hey, have you seen prices for the "Clownshoe"?

It is a real shame that currently Top Gear have followed the Clarkson/May and Hammond . Chris Harris is not allowed to shine because he has to conform to the nonsense format of yesteryear. I stopped watching top gear because it was all faux theatrics and humour. Just look at Rory Reid on Auto Trader- he too was wasted on Top Gear.

The EU mandated that BMW and Audi increase the size of their grilles, as a safety measure, so that other road users know that an incompetent motorist is approaching and to take evasive action. It is estimated that these larger "idiot grilles" will save hundreds of lives every year.

Having watched several videos about the new M3/M4 now, it has got me wondering, does ANYONE actually like the look of the new cars...? Literally anyone? I think the touring is the best looking model of the new 3/4 series lineup so an M3 touring SHOULD be a winner but.... there is daring design and then there is just vulgar design and this new M grille I'm affraid is more of the latter. We might get used to it with time, but it will never be a thing of beauty.
