Want A New BMW M3 Or M4 But Not The Oversized Grille? You Have An Option

What BMW thinks is fine but everyone dislikes will be fixed: The aftermarket will sell front fascias for the new M3 and M4


  • No one likes the new oversized grille on the new G80 M3 and G82 M4.

  • A German tuning company Prior Design will make aftermarket bumpers.


Since the first renderings and spy shots of the new 2021 BMW M3 and M4 surfaced, comments about a specific design aspect of the cars began surfacing. Essentially, all of the internet along with fans and enthusiasts agree that the front bumper and grille combination on the cars is all wrong.

Leave it to the aftermarket to fix what BMW thinks is just fine… As shared by thedrive.com, the German tuning company Prior Design has revealed a number of designs that will frankly be a huge improvement over the cars that will leave the assembly lines.

The renderings and design studies all have one thing in common: the kidneys are significantly cut. Starting at 3:34, Prior Design demonstrates what the G82 M4 should essentially look like from the factory. They’ve also lowered the car in the process which adds to the front’s aggressive features.

Seriously, no matter which one’s your favorite, they are all massive improvements over the OEM’s setup.
