    Speaking of Grilles

    Just got an email from BMWUSA and this interesting video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3HIBwupo1Y.

    I don't know if this grille will ever grow on me.... at the moment I have to look away

    I found an artist rendering of what it could look with a different grille - I'm into that!

    Here's the article with the rendering https://www.bmwblog.com/2020/03/09/b...idney-grilles/

    Surprisingly, I don’t hate it. I sort of like it actually. However, only on this car. For some reason I do hate it on the non-i cars.

    The new grill on the all-electric fits well with the car IMHO

    Those never ending enlarged grilles are what makes e46 such a classic looking car. I regret everyday now that I have sold my ZHP and hope one day can acquire another one. For now, I will just hold onto my e90.
