Didn't really notice it until edkwon pointed it out...
Yeah, but now that he has...wow. How hard could it have been to simply extend the bonnet to the top of the kidney grills. I'm sure there's a perfectly good reason though.

Great looking car though!

Yeah, I don't understand why they leave such a visible line, the E36 3 series had the bonnet extend all the way to the front grill like you said, then the E46 generation incorportated the kidney grills into the bonnet, I don't think they did that with the E90 but I'm not sure.

On the E92 it extends up until the kidneys.



Looks a lot better than just a straight line which has now stuck in my mind.
