Does the BMW 4 Series look better without M Sport bits?

You've seen the M Sport Four, but is the regular coupe actually less fugly?

You’ve likely seen the new BMW 4 Series by now. It’s got grille. You’ll love it or you’ll hate it, but we suspect no one occupies the space betwixt the two.

But how about when it’s shorn of showy M Sport trim? We’ll never see one like this on British shores – BMW’s deemed us tarty enough to only want the posh specs – but in other countries there’ll be ‘regular’ 4 Series coupes like the car on the right, above.

“I’m less offended by the main grille design than most people are,” said Top Gear’s Paul Horrell. “My beef is the wider facial ensemble and its secondary apertures and fins and gills.” Fins and gills which are seriously scaled down for the base Four, though perhaps more demure wheels and trim make its side profile appear a little more stocky.

Anyway, you can decide for yourself by sliding between the two below. Then telling us what you think in the comments box. Is the 4 Series a bit less ‘OH MY WORD WHAT HAVE THEY DONE?’ in standard trim?
