2021 BMW 430i Coupe First Drive: The Nose Isn’t the Problem

  2021 BMW 430i Coupe First Drive: The Nose Isn’t the Problem Let’s get the barf emojis, raised eyebrows, and pointing and snickering aimed at the redesigned-for-2021 BMW 4 Series’ new flared nostrils out of the way now. 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.

The 28-year-old Briton Scott Redding changes to the 2022 season from the Ducati work team to the BMW Motorrad Worldsbk Team. That made BMW now known.

Redding has been active in various world championship classes since 2008, among other things, he was launched for five years in the MotoGP. In 2019, he joined for a season in the British Superbike Championship (BSB) and secured the title there. For the 2020 season, he moved to the Ducati's work team in the Superbike World Cup, where he wanted to skip the title to the continuous winner Jonathan Rea.

Sykes-Future Uncertain

Now Redding seems to try his luck with the white-blue from Munich. As BMW now announced, Redding will be at the 2022 season in the BMW Motorrad Worldsbk team as a teammate of the Dutchman Michael Van der Mark. Whether Redding thus replaced Tom Sykes is still unclear. BMW underlines that currently talks with Sykes over a contract extension for the World Superbike season 2022. All other constellations BMW wants to be announced at a later date. BMW clearly aims with the obligation of Redding to the World Cup title.

More often, you end up using the M1 and M2 programmable buttons on the steering wheel, and that's where your choices get daunting.
