Here’s Your Best Look Yet at the Big Grille on the New BMW M4 Convertible

The massive double-coffin kidney grille design on the new BMW M3 and M4 is an assault on the senses, for better or worse, depending on your tastes. While we’ve only seen the sedan and coupe variants so far, there’s still a wagon on the horizon, as well as a convertible, shown above. And both will be getting the same controversial front end design.

Judging by this latest spy video to emerge from the sidelines of the Nürburgring, BMW is fully committed to giving its high-volume M cars that… interesting nose. It’s fully on display on this M4 convertible prototype, which, like the normal 4-Series, has switched to a soft-top roof style, moving away from the previous-gen car’s folding hard top.

Under the hood, we fully expect the M4 ‘vert to get the same exact same drivetrain as its fixed-roof sibling. That means a twin-turbo S58 straight-six making 473 horsepower and

The numbers: U.S. wholesale costs rose sharply in September for the third month in a row, but the recent upturn largely reflected prices returning to normal after the economy reopened and not a sustained increase in inflation.

The producer price index jumped 0.4% last month, the government said Wednesday. Economists polled by MarketWatch had predicted a 0.2% advance.

Most of the increase last month in wholesale prices was tied to a partial rebound in the cost of hotel and travel-related services after more people ventured out toward the end of the summer. Businesses were forced to slash prices last spring when lockdown orders and fear of catching the virus kept most customers away.

Inflation in the U.S. was still quite tepid. Wholesale inflation has risen just 0.4% in the past year, marking the first positive reading in six months. Typically wholesale prices start to
