I think the new m850i leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to design.

They got the profile right, maybe they could’ve made the shoulderline a bit lower and the grille of a reasonable size.

I think BMW is jumping into a “bangle butt” situation with their grille size. I know it’s a thing of all automakers right now, but this car must use 2/5ths of the vertical space available at the front for the grille, just to be beset by some non-functional air intakes.

It must’ve been a design risk and to me it wasn’t worth it. Lexus made a lot of design risks on the LC500 and those seem to have worked for me at least.
