As far as the Radiator Grill is concerned BMW are now copying the Audi wide mouth grill,when Audi first launched it I did not like it, but it has grown on me as, probably the BMW grill will as the whole BMW range will have it so we will get used to it

I think we need to have a change.org petition to tell BMW to stop fcking up almost all their new cars with these absolutely abhorrent grills.

Can I get an Amen?

Jesus Christ can we at least wait til the camo's off before we start petitioning.

If the new G22/G82 sales are abysmal I'll eat my words but I'm pretty sure BMW knows what they're doing.

You don't make it 100+ years in the game by accident.

Probably going to receive the same treatment as the G30 LCI in that the kidney grille will retain the traditional shape but will likely grow a bit in size. The rear seems to retain most of the pre-LCI design so the LCI doesn't look like it's going to be a huge change.

The grille grew a tad by the looks of it,

Guess the direction is definitely growing bigger.
Interested to see the interior updates!

I think the X3 is one of the best looking cars in BMW's lineup. They really shouldn't screw with it too much...

That would make waaaaay too much sense for these forums.

Instead let's complain incessantly about cars in full camo, threaten to leave the brand forever, and then buy the car 2 years down the road and act like you loved it the entire time.

I'm not really seeing the tail light changes. Maybe a subtle change.

2020-21 X3 M40i is in my future for sure. I definitely want the power increase and interior updates vs. the 2018-19, but I don't want the hybrid system and I most likely won't like the new fascia of the LCI.

IMO the X5 and X7 look great, we can only assume they are updating the X3 to match. I think it will make the X3 more bold and give it some character

Word on the street is that the MY2021 is getting the mild-hybrid treatment (in the m40i model). This is according to a resident expert who posted in my MY2021 Build Sheet Guide thread. I am in a similar boat with wanting the added power vs. 2018/2019 but it doesn't seem like the Mild Hybrid hurts anything...yet

Lol @ all of you acting like BMW can't make a design mistake. Like every car they've made recently is perfect.

And why not let me voice dissent? You're certainly too happy to voice your dissent about my opinion in the first place.

So please, relax. The world goes on.
