You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

You have some official info and know better than the Bimmerpost staff? No offense to you but there info is usually solid. They already said the E92 m3 and e93 m3 would be produced until mid and late 2013 so this timing makes sense.

I agree. And not being able to get a E92 335 with M-Sport to remove the bumper was one of the determining factors of a few friends that decided not to get 335. I don't' know what happened with the available options this late in the product cycle. I could understand at the beginning of the cycle but not at the end where everything has been established for the model.

Do you remember what the price was for the coupe over the sedan? I want to see how much they charged with the E9X and how much more with the name change.

EDIT: Found it. Seems to be about a 9k difference between sedan/coupe. I thought they were much closer so the name change doesn't really make sense to me still. If it were say $3-4k difference in price and the name change would allow BMW to make it to the $9k it currently is I would say sure, makes sense.
9k? E90 to E92 was a little over $2,000. Remember, you got xenons, sport steering wheel and sport suspension as standard on e92 for the increased base price from e90

$9k would be e93.

you're timeline makes more sense... if BMW intends to wait until late 2013 they'll lose a large number of costumers looking to get into a coupe..

Getting bored looking camo spy shots so this morning I looked among other brands the 350 C Class coupe

Right and Left side are different.

Thicker vertical slats vs. more and thin slats.

I don't think its settled yet. Maybe another trim line thing.

Don't assume yet. You only saw the grille. You have not seen the headlights or even the whole bumper uncovered. In other words, you have not seen the whole front end yet. Once you have seen the whole front end uncovered, that's where you make your verdict.

It's like me showing a particular person's cleavage to you. You get hyped and excited trying to see the pretty face behind that cleavage. In the end, you find out it's a guys bottom...

Yeah that's my mistake, I was looking at the E90 328 price which makes much more sense. LOL.

Damn, so the F32 is going to be north of 50k? I know Audi pricing is similar but I think that's ridiculous for a 3/4-Series coupe. By the time you drive it off the lot you could looking at a 60k coupe. Yikes.

I'm confused. Is the 4 series just a new name for a 3 series coupe so now the whole 3 series is 4 door only? Or is it an entirely different model line a car size bigger than a 3 and smaller than a 5? Also why is it pulling a camper in those photos...

No, his timeline makes no sense at all. We already know that E92/93 will be produced through June 2013.

4 series will be the the new coupe and convertible, and probably the upcoming Gran Coupe based off the current 3series sedan.

3er will be a sedan, touring and a GT while the 4er will be the coupe, convertible and the gran coupe, they will share the same chassis and basic design elements. I think they will be almost the same size, the sedan could be bigger by an inch all around.

I will wait before making the final verdict, but I am not encouraged by the e92 lci or the f30. Those are both newer designs and I dislike both of the stock bumpers. Hope they surprise me!
