What a shame. It looks like it might have been a beautiful car.

I just hope there is going to be an aftermarket option somewhere to de-uglify that face.

Default Garmisch

Now finally I understand why BMW stressed so much about the "Garmisch" concept months ago. The link with the proportions of the new front grill is clear. They preferred to remake the old car instead of doing a new concept, as Marcello Gandini suggested to do.

So I guess that at least the ugliness is a legacy design, rather than a new horror....

While some connection for sure, the Garmisch concept's grill is not as huge and doesn't distract from the overall design.

Supposedly the reason the grill is that large is China, the chinese seem to like large grills and they cannot lie.

China has bad taste.

No reason they couldn't just have a different bumper design for China rather than mess it up for everyone else.

Of course they did it for the chinese taste, but I mean that the Garmish grill, even with its smaller dimensions, is the only I can remember before the next one that splits the front bumper and gives a sort of vertical element tho the face of the car.
