No surprise. MINI did a refresh of their logo (flat and minimalist looking) and now BMW did it and I think it looks fine. At the end of the day, I'm still going to know it's a BMW roundel. The hofmeister kink on the other hand...

I think itís suiting for the progression. They have bigger design issues than this right now.

If you go to any BMW website the letters and outline change between black and white depending on the background. Pretty neat.

On cars though, I wonder if they will use different colors depending on the paint?

Maybe this is BMWs attempt to move away from the kind of person who bitches about grills and logos?

Great move, fanboys need to calm down.

BMW's social media accounts and official global homepage have been updated with the new logo effective today.

The social media handles for BMW AG (i.e., Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc.) use a soft-light type of background overlayed with the new logo.


While the BMW Motorsport social media accounts use the same transparent logo with the coveted M colors mixed in as the background.


Interesting versatility of the new logo and kind of reminds me of the vintage 1970s BMW Motorsport roundel somewhat.

I love the new logo. Most companies refresh their brand very 10-20 or so years.

I just wish they would remove the blue and white and make them matte and polished silver—a smart monochromatic scheme.

To those annoyed, be glad that you can do something about this, unlike the kidney grills. Emblems are incredibly easy to swap out and there will be a bunch of aftermarket ones on sale.

Wouldn't be surprised if they did. They changed the MINI logo at head office in Toronto/Richmond Hill and the BMW one to probably follow suit shortly.

They just need to tweak it with the new logo.

The redesign was recently completed.

The car has to be easy on the eyes - the logo doesn't matter much but I like the last version better.

As stated earlier, I really like the new logo. Kind of curious though how the white bmw font will look on a white car. Wondering if the color changes depending on the car.
