Here is a few questions i am not able to answer myself...

Will the 4 series be a better 3 series than the 3 series itself ?
Does the model rename induce the 4 series to be a better car than the 3 series ?
or will the 4 series become a better car than the 3 series because it's no longer called the 3 coupe?

Whatever the intention BMW had with this "logical" realignment of naming...

Will you guys continue to think of the 4 series to be still a 3 series in coupe version ?

Personally, i am having a lot of trouble

i know it's just a name, but 3 is just mythic...
and the coupe gave it a lot more prestige and desirability...

Now that the coupe has gone on to acquire a new name and new identity...

it's like Paul McCartney leaving the Beatles...

will the 3 series become just another sedan in the ocean pool of upcoming koreans, and ever changing identity-less japanese 4 doors... ??

There is no doubt in my mind the brand new chapter for the new 3 series coupe >>> 4 series has a bright shining future .... i see already!

I am just sad that our desirability for the 3 will be moved to the 4, leaving the 3 for Camry owners who have upgraded their rides....
