Have been away from SVTP for a little while...just started getting back into reading the forum. I picked this up last summer, a 2020 M4 Heritage Edition. Basically it's a competition package with some additional cosmetic upgrades and it was limited to 750 units. Wanted to to get an F82 before the monstrosity that is the G82 (woodchuck face) replaced it. Just got it out of the garage this past weekend for the first time this season.

Yes siiiiiiiiiiiir!

I finished the motor on the 250r and me, my son (on the Suzuki), and his friend (on the Blaster) did about 40 miles on them last weekend. So much fun, but my 43 year old ass got kicked!

These ladies randomly asked me if they could pose with my car during an event that was organized by a dealership. There were pro photos taken as well, but I'll have to contact the photographer at some point to get those copies, if I can. This was yesterday.

Got a copy of the pro shot:

Very nice! Congratulations. I definitely like the 2020. The 2021 M4 with the horrendous front grill, NO.

It's always astonished me that something that ugly gets the green light from what I imagine to be a panel of people at BMW. "Yeah, this looks great and everyone will love it! Approved!" Just like the latest Ford Escape front end. Barf. Same goes for wannabe humorous commercials that aren't even close to funny. Ex: Liberty Mutual's emu crap I could go on and on.

Honestly, I was as surprised as many others when the new radical kidney grill was announced. I did find an interesting article with an interview with BMW Design Chief Domagoj Dukec. Back in June of last year, Dukec stated that he "believes that the “polarising” kidney grille on the new 4 Series coupe will be recognised as a “brand-shaper” in years to come."

"The decision to use a horizontal grille was to link the 4 Series back to older BMW models such as the 328. Dukec added: “The kidney is much like BMW was using 100 years ago. It's a strong link to our heritage, but also radical and progressive.”

"Dukec told Autocar that the 4 Series grille follows BMW’s recent trend to make each of its models stand out. “It should be in the core of BMW to have a product which makes a strong statement,” said Dukec. “It’s unmistakably BMW, unmistakably 4 Series. It’s not just logical; it has a very strong character that’s unique to our brand.

“The twin kidney grille is the most prominent design icon we have. It’s the biggest difference we have from any other car out there. We’ve used the kidney in a variety of ways to give our cars a certain presence: the 3 Series has a very horizontal one because it’s a more rational, serious car. A coupe like the 4 Series should express the exotic part of BMW.”

Asked about the reaction to the grille on the concept car, Dukec added: “In the design business, you can’t listen to social media reactions. It won’t help you. Design is something that is so emotional, and everybody has an opinion and different tastes. There’s no right or wrong in design. When you do something like this 50 per cent of people might love it and 50 per cent will hate it, and that won’t change. Anything you do there will be people who like it and people who don’t – but this is not the criteria.

“The criteria for design is to create something unique, something daring, to make a statement. I’m 100 per cent convinced something like this, although it’s polarising in the beginning, is at the heart of BMW and a brand-shaper for us. Our products have to express the special position of BMW.

"We don’t want to polarise with every product, but the 4 Series is a very expressive car. In two or three years, I’m convinced this will be a really strong product on the road, and people, whether they love it or not, will see it as a car with a certain identity.”

polarizing usually means people hate it or love it. I have yet to hear anyone outside the designer say they love it.
