The huge dual grille openings resemble many things—buck teeth, the nasal passages on a bare skull, etc.—but few will recognize that they mark a return to the original tall, skinny kidney grilles applied to early BMW models a century ago. Historical footnotes aside, the weird face tragically distracts from the rest of the 4 Series design, which is svelte and attractive, like a three-quarter-scale 8 Series coupe.

How Do You Charge Your Electric Car at a Public Charging Station? .
Public Charging Is Easy, but There Are Details You Need To Understand First of all, it’s important to point out that most electric vehicle (EV) owners charge at home most of the time. One of the best aspects of EV ownership is being able to plug in your car when you get home from work, and wake in the morning to a full charge. No more visits to the gas station, no more smelly hands, and no more pricey gasoline. With that said, people who live in apartments or condos may not have the option to charge at home.
