Unless I'm incorrect, it SHOULD look like a 3 series as it isn't really a different car... similar platform as the 3 series just a coupe version called a 4 series.
P.S. I think it looks great.
It shouldn't look the same. The coupe is a different series now it would be very stupid to have 2 cars that are completely in a different series but have same look (front) - marketingwise. Doesn't matter if they have the same chassis; very little number of people know this. I love the rest of the car though
