Yeah but the wheels and the front bumper are way too busy for my tastes. But then I'm an old man, I don't like them so...shouty.

You don't think that bumper, with all the folds and creases and fussy foglamps, is busier than say, a stock bumper?

lol! Dude that stock bumper is busier with the stupid chrome line piece and black plastic insert. The new bumper is super clean and molded. Its classic M styling.

Classic M styling includes an evolution of the relatively new flame surfacing language and busy foglamps? I'm not one to brag, but I'm pretty well-read in automotive design, and those are not classic.

It takes the same styling cues from the e90 M lines bumpers. Which in turn took cues from the E46...Thats what I meant.

Okay, E46 = last descendant of the 1970 Garmisch concept by Bertone
E90 = relatively new evolution of "flame surfacing" which was a new language by Bangle in the late '90s

I see the connection between the E90 and the F30, but explain to me the connection in surface detailing between the F30 and the E46, and since you mentioned classic M styling, every other M car ever produced.
