You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Wow. Seriously? I will reserve judgment until it is actually released, but this IMO...this doesn't look good. Squished Kia front end is not going to be a winner.

BMW is trying to save us money from upgrading the performance grill, instead of buying left and right grill, we only need to pay for one.

I like it. If grade school geometry taught me anything it's that this isn't the same shape as the KIA grill. Bimmer owners groaning about a new kidney design is as certain as death and taxes.

Well I think that this is no longer a twin kidney grill. It's now one grill. I think the twin kidney grill is arguably the most iconic part of a bmw and I'm not sure why they would abandon it and go with one grill joining the rest of the carmakers. Some things shouldn't be messed with.....

I'm not a fan of these i series grills [i4 above]. I understand they want to differentiate themselves, but it isn't working for me.

Lol, at least the grille looks better than the oversized grilles on the upcoming X5 and X7.
