Someone put a G8x front end on an F8x

If on one hand it seems that most people do not like the new grill, on the other hand there are people who apparently always wanted it...

I don't know how, but it somehow looks better on the current generation than the new one. I don't hate it nearly as much.

The grill doesn't stand out so much because it isn't black. The black G80's also look much better than the white G80's because of this.

inner upper lines on the headlights and grille are on the same plane, that's possibly why it doesn't look as bad. But less bad is still bad.

F30s always get every other BMW front end conversion.

E9x started this trend with the 1M conversion; all downhill from there.
