...And I'm willing to bet it stays. When the F10 M5 concept was released in concept form, there were more than a few people who were not pleased about the GM-like chrome grille on the fender and were hoping that it was just a concept design. I'm actually a fan of the design, makes it more sporty and separates it from the 3-Series, but not a fan how it's not colored the same as the body as it is on the 6-Series.

While the 6-Series is a good looking car and will translate nicely to the 4-Series (seriously, how odd does it look to see "435i" and "440i"?), I'm disappointed that BMW has followed Mercedes/Audi where models become derivatives of each other (X6 = X4, 6-Series = 4-Series). But I guess the more models you have, the less time you have to actually to design a car independent of other cars in the line up (E90 vs. E92).

One thing I'm already a fan of is the overall body/shape/stance, it looks far more sporty than the E92 that looks more luxury when compared to the F32 just like the F30 when compared to the E90.
