He was kind of coy and didn't want to reveal much, but he said something like, "You know how you don't like ze headlights into ze grill on the 3? You vill like ze 2 much better, zen..." and he smiled. I, obviously, took that to mean that the headlights would not blend into the grill. Just throwing that out there...
This would be a significant positive. Boo for front light kidney mashups. Yay for the 2 series. Possibly. Heh.
