Ugly as sin. Beating a dead horse at this point though.

BMW doesn't care about enthusiasts on a web forum complaining about 4 cylinders or FWD, the kids and mom's buying this thing would never notice.

Our only hope is that China eventually acquires some taste and these grilles go away.

Just saw the carwow video where they compared the old to the new. For me, hard to call the new car anything but a disappointment.

The new one is a complete mess.

Yep! New car... slower, fatter, FWD. It only can out brake the older model. So sad.
