    Grille wars

    The latest trend of huge grille openings on vehicles is out of control.
    Latest 7 series BMW has entered the fray not a fan

    Baleen BMWs feeding on birds and small mammals? Ships with a sharpened broom handle that serves as a toothpick, Ill bet. Whatever it is, it is really ugly and its hard to imagine what the designer was thinking.

    Whale Shark "Mouth" Trend

    Toyota/Lexus has gone down the same road with their whale shark mouth. BMW's "kidney" grill was tasteful and iconic. This is just obnoxious.

    This happened 20something years ago with ID badges. I remember looking at a suzuki and thinking it must be Supermans' car.

    When the Dodge Ram went with the big fenders and grille around 2000, I thought wow..thats different.
    Then I bought one anyways, the newest Ram is losing the fender look, but all the new truck models have the large grill look.
    Hope the 2020 RT doesn't follow the car side the small opening of a 2002 bimmer was subtle.
