Since the launch of the 2021 BMW 4 Series, the most discussed design update has been on the front fairing, especially the massive grille. This is naturally the case, and we bet that some people will send their thoughts directly to the comments section without even reading this story.
They are not to blame, however. In the history of BMW grilles, the gargantuan nose of the 4 Series Coupé is the largest, perhaps even larger than those fitted to after-sales service. It is also probably the most controversial. At the end of the day, however, everyone is his.
And honestly, it’s starting to grow on me.
Now another important part of the hullabaloo of the Series 4 grille or a talking point, to say the least, is whether the presence of a license plate makes the grille better or worse. The European versions of series 4 will not have this debate, because it is mandated throughout the old continent.
In the United States, however, 19 states currently do not require front license plates in cars. Ohio will be the 20th state to adopt this ordinance as of July 1.
If you’re in those states, now’s your chance to decide if Series 4 is your next Bimmer. Although you’ve already seen this in renderings, BMW USA has released official images (see gallery above) of the 4 series coupe on its website, listed as a future vehicle.
The dedicated Series 4 microsite also lists upcoming color options, including Arctic Race Blue Metallic, Tanzanite II Blue Metallic, Dravit Gray Metallic, Portimao Blue Metallic, Mineral White Metallic, Black Sapphire Metallic and alpine white. You can also see the coupe in these colors in the gallery above.
