The second in a series of shots on what makes a BMW a BMW. A few design characteristics that are on every BMW you’ll see on the roads today.

Second: Kidney Grill – Nose

The traditional “kidney” grill was first introduced in the twenties or thirties. A design that stemmed from an effort to improve aerodynamic performance, cooling and breathing for the engine. Originally they were very tall and thin, but over the years, they have evolved into the short, wide grill that you see on the road these days.
