    Walked past a new Z4 yesterday in an semi-matt grey. What between the colour, the grills and huge wheels, it looked awful.

    And to top it off sported a 2.0i badge. To paraphrase, all made up and unable to go.

    Maybe the number plate will distract the eye from the huge grill? Wishful thinking? :ROFLMAO:

    The only Really Good thing about those Grilles is that you can t see them when driving the car. That s it .

    ^^. That looks like it's solid, I wonder if he only fitted after parking up? He certainly couldn't drive it if I' m right, so I've possibly not looked closely enough.

    These things look more Ford (ish) now that Ford owns the brand.

    Looks like it’s right in ‘getting dented territory....’
    Is that quilting an option... ? What’s going on there..?

    Yes I read that at the time I saw it...£6 Million but you did get another car included with it. The one I saw was just parked in a municipal car park but it had sensors taped to it and medical info taped to the dash so I'm guessing here, but I think it was some sort of test car?? The ones for £6 mil seem to be red too whereas this one was obv blue.

    This is how BMW themselves view their grilles.
    I’m probably still the only one here who doesn’t disagree with them?... :LOL:

    Nasty (n)
    For the first time in over two decades I have my eye on other marques now. Well done BMW.

    Edit: Just spec'd up an M440i xdrive - £63000 :rofl:

    Yeah same here... bought my first BMW, E21 320i in 1980, 40 years of ownership. Abysmal styling nowadays
