Yes it does, and BMW says it's a good thing (less air drag than forcing the air through the radiator). Also, be prepared the grilles only open up when the engine is really - I mean really - seriously warm. After half an hour drive on a motorway at speeds reaching 200 km/h, I checked and they were still closed.

In many hour trip, I inspected them when stuck in a traffic jam under July sun; they were wide open.
