Indifferent. Not the first nor the last time it has changed.

Giving it a different appearance depending on the color of the vehicle it's on

So is this supposed to be a distraction from the hideous grills? Most manufacturers don't really mess with what is their brand logo/history. At least I don't think they do really.

I don't mind it, however I'd need to see it on a production vehicle, especially in a different variety of colors.

We know that the i4 will receive this, so does that mean the 4er will also receive the new emblem?

I like it, but I wonder if our current badges build up grime underneath with time. If that's the case then the transparent badge won't look good when dirty.

Seems a little like an emblem you'd see on a cheap toy... Not the end of the world but a bit odd to me

They ruined one more important thing that existed 100+ years for the favor of trends.

I think all the models that will be introduced now and on they will have this logo . I think the first will be the next 4 series .

Is it transparent or just open like a normal badge?


I like it. I love the current badge, but the current badge will always be there. New cars, new badge... move forward.
