Aftermarket BMW M3 and M4 grilles and bumper set for production

German aftermarket specialist, Prior Design, has taken the wraps off - via YouTube - its in-house redesigned front grille and bumper for the newly-released BMW M3 and M4 siblings. The M halo cars aroused much controversy when revealed to the public earlier this year, the large, vertical kidney grille dominating the front fascia and drawing criticism from car enthusiast and automotive media alike.

Gallery: 2021 Hyundai i20 N in all its pocket rocket glory

Revealed: the damning report on Toyota diesel particulate filters

Legal representatives for car giant Toyota – and the law firm that commenced a Class Action over diesel particular filter faults on approximately 250,000 HiLux, Prado and Fortuner models – went head-to-head today in an online Federal Court hearing. At the centre of the dispute is the excessive white smoke caused by certain Toyota models equipped with the 2.8-litre engine (and some equipped with the smaller, 2.4-litre) when it is doing a “burn off” of the diesel particular filter.

It was factory-specified with 19-inch forged aluminium wheels, adaptive suspension and Recaro seats.
