The BMW M3 Saloon and M4 Coupe are back... and you won't be able to miss them. Both feature BMW's controversial new vertical grille, but stick to a familiar mechanical recipe: 503bhp, 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight six producing 503bhp in the 'Competition' versions - the only models coming to the UK. Offered first with rear-wheel drive, switchable 4WD will follow in 2021, as well as a cabriolet and estate later. Is this the sweet-spot M-car or has the M2 stolen its thunder? Watch our full walkaround to find out. Now, about that grille...

  • It looks like they got a normal M4 and just forgot to stop hitting it with an ugly stick. Sales are going to plummet and not to mention it's 75k are they mad?

    • @Kiss Layy Months to come, only then will bmw realise they've made a huge error with the nose design of the car, Iits everything you said it was, bar rhe looks. I had a 2018 M3, so I know how they are to drive, many, many car journalists & recent bmw designers have noted the flaws, you Mr Kiss Layy, are in the minority

  • This is Beaver not Beamer! The ugliest BMW ever. Also ruined the M3 with atrocious front design. Engineering team should sue the design team. Anyone who thinks this looks like CSL is simply blind. Lost my business. BMW is competing with audi and Lexus to see who can design the ugliest and the biggest grill. It’s like who’s has biggest crap!!!

  • The front is actually okay, but I believe most of the places in the world requires a front license plate, which destroys the front look.

  • The fact that every reviewer is trying to defend this ugly look just tells you even they find it ugly. They just need access to future BMW events. So you hear these pathetic arguments to defend this ugly look.

  • Can't wait to order mine and piss off all you haters when I absolutely rinse your 2003 Honda Civics. Every single one of you commenting on the Grilles, either can't afford one anyway, or you're just a BMW hater. Either way, you'll all look like absolute fools when these two beasts come out and you see how aggressive these look. Keep hating morons, as these M3' and M4's will sell like hot cakes (as usual)
