Arrow 16 BMW's lose their kidney grilles...

World Car Fans has an interesting render of 16 BMW's that lose their kidney grilles... (thru digital rendering).


Have a look for yourself. It's interesting how much this minor change, changes the entire look(face) of our beloved BMW's.

No no no no no no no no no no no no!!!!! Please No!!!

Please don't do this to me BMW. I can put up the the softness, the weight gain, the turbos, the M brand whoring itself, and the Audi like design trend for all models but PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THE GRILLS MAN!!!

The E89 Z4 was the last straw for me and the ultimate compromise. What is left of my brand loyalty is the name and the grills. You are just making it easier for me to switch and leave you. I really still want to stay loyal but I guess you've changed.

Calm down this is just some guy playing with photoshop.
X5 and 5GT actually don't look bad that way, but there is no way BMW would drop the kidney.

haha it's kind of funny that it's coming down to one identifying mark that distinguishing them from other very common such as fords.

actually, that's not funny at all. :|

What are you talking about? Someone with some free time on their hands just photoshopped a bunch of pictures, no one is actually doing this.

LOL, f'rill. It's amazing how generic they look without kidney grills. Small subtleties go a long way.

I still get a chuckle out of the way these BMW's look without their trademark grills.
