Audi / Lexus have been doing this for a while and I always thought it looked hideous. I do hope that it doesn't spread to the entire line of cars.
And literally everyone else.

Why is this so hard to understand?

China BMW Sales are already 2x higher than USA YTD in 2019.

Roughly 73% of BMW Sales in China this year are Cars, not SUVs.

BMW Car Sales are collapsing in USA. Only thing keeping BMW close to positive in USA are SUVs sales.

China BMW Sales from 2019 - 2031 expected to rise 50% compared to 13% in North America

China already has 2x the Dealers as USA.

China likes big grills. USA buyers can come along or not. USA just are not driving the long term future any longer. China Consumer Appeal is leading the design of future vehicles.
