I was trying to discern that too. But I am not good at guessing the lines below even the weakest disguise so...

Yes this might be the case. The 4 series concept at frankfurt should confirm or deny this theory.

I mean, I got use to Audi's shield and Lexus's predator grille, but this just seems a step beyond. It's not just the overall size, but the proportions, too. Very tall, relatively narrow. How can anyone think this is attractive? Of course, attractive doesn't sell cars, so maybe that's part of the thinking???

It's really unfortunate since the 3/4-series coupes were among BMW's most consistently elegant and handsome designs....

will wait to judge until we see the real thing but i'll say i'm excited that BMW might actually be taking some risk in its designs. you'd think they'd pick a less mainstream model to do this with though, like the 8 series.

Somehow I doubt that face will be a stunning beauty up close in reality.

Perhaps the most diplomatic way of phrasing what we are all thinking....
