The air intake below the front grill is hideous. A bit like a blackened-toothed Cheshire Cat gone wrong.

One UK magazine this week talks of the Ďbolder-looking grilleí... Thatís one way to describe it- I can think of others!

A bit grotesque, I'd say.

Agree. All down to the need to appeal to the Chinese market, apparently. And the USA.....

Personally I think it hideous..... for the US and Chinese markets? No accounting for taste.

We don't get but one of the models and it's often leased. 7s lose value in the US like aged milk so doubt they are pushing hard for US sales. Baby engined 3,4,5s yes, some 6 and 8s I'd guess but it's all SUV market here.

How much of the hood is just BMW not accounting for taste and building to meet the pedestrian safety rules? It's not like they have made cars any one want as art pieces for more than a few model runs lately.

Their (current model at least) depreciation curve is pretty steep here as well! Which models are made in the USA now? I know the X5 always was.

It was UK specialist press saying that the car was styled to appeal to the US and China, but of course that could just be them surmising.....

I wondered about the front and pedestrian safety rules, but other manufacturers seem able to meet them without resorting to such a vulgar front! Your reference to recent models and art statements (not) is pretty much how I view their range nowadays. IMHO the last good looking one was the ĎF06í 6 series Gran Coupe.....

Think it's X3-7 production for the world from that plant, sadly used to make Z3/4s but now BMW badged junk. And it looks like that front is contagious, although there'e another thread for this but wow, ugly knows no bounds.
