With the Supra heading back and the BMW 4 Series arriving I reflected on their controversial aspects

Defending the Toyota Supra and THAT controversial BMW kidney grille. Well, kinda. As the Supra headed back and the new BMW 420i M Sport arrived for me to review, I realised both are the subject of sometimes heated discussion and debate among petrolheads and car enthusiasts.
