that looks quite like the masked front ends of the m3/4 mules, I was hoping for an X5 front end grille vibe.

Could there be room for the trotter snout between the hood and the lower intake? Hold on tight....

Yes, these are almost certainly the huge grilles from G80. Effing up such a good looking vehicle. What a shame.

Calm down people, it has a center ACC sensor. It doesn't look like the kidneys go beyond (or even into) the number plate.

how can you guys tell from these early heavy camo? it doesn't look that vertical based on the shape of the grill cutout. didn't BMW say the vertical grills will only be in the 4 and m3/4?

is its true that the grills are enlarged, I need to myself a 2020 x3m asap

I meant shaping, but yes the x7 is a monstrosity. Likely bigger but I don't think vertical. Just enlarged

good point with the ACC sensor. With G80 you could tell early on that the sensor is shifted to the left.

It's not only the sensor. If you look at the picture closely, you can see what looks like the edge of the kidney grill. I have marked it on this picture, the curvature seems to show the grill ends way above that of the new M3/M4.

That's good. X4 has worst looking kidneys in BMW history. Rear end is also catastrophic
