Default They’re FAKE?!?! - 09-26-2019, 03:48 PM

Have any of you looked at the new BMWs? Those huge, hideous grilles? They’re Fake!!! They’re solid plastic, with no openings whatsoever!! Wtf? What the hell is BMW thinking? Surely the aerodynamic advantage cannot offset the heat retained by a lack of airflow.

Ugh I hate that grill trend to start with. That they have no function makes it so much worse.

They're "Active Kidney Grilles". They open and close. What a waste.
