That means they can bring in a nicely optioned 235i for $50K and it still leaves plenty of room for the 4er.

Switching exhausts with that rear bumper integration is going to be a real pain in the ass.

Hopefully those folks who were going on and on about how bad the 4 GC interior is based on just spy photos from test mules can hold their peace now seeing the direction BMW is going with the 4 series interiors.

Looks great, but I wish it were smaller. TOO BIG.
As far as price, maybe it could be optioned up to $70k, but that's pretty nuts. The New M3 will be $70-80k I would guess.

Bigger coupes. The wheel base is now about equal to the E39 5 series. I thought the E92 was already on the long side. Maybe it will grow on me, but maybe I'll be looking for a 2-series next time around (many years down the road).

Looks great but it looks too similar to my LCI e92.

The changes might be too subtle...plus this is just a "concept". I imagine that production front and rear bumpers will look more standard like the 3 series modern, luxury, sport, msport bumpers.

The interior looks great though, I like that the center console does not extend all the way back, so people can easily shuffle in and out from just the passenger side...

Can't see a 435/440 coupe (non-vert) going for 70k, even fully optioned. That would push an M4 convertible into 90k territory, which is ludicrous. Price increase? Yeah, ok...but within reason, I'd hope.

The production car won't have those bumpers/exhaust. The Concept versions are always crazy like this.

M3 vert territory is already $80K, so another $10K is not really that much of a stretch, since BMW wants to move the 4 series upmarket.

You might be the only one here who thinks it looks anything like an e92 LCI.

Not too shabby but the fender vent still looks out of place. What I'm really impressed with is the interior. It looks very upscale like the 6-series.

I see what you see, but I can tell you...my wife has a Kia Optima and I have a 328i M Sport. The Optima is good looking, sporty, etc, but when I park them side by side, I don't even see the Kia. No matter how similar the Kia may be styling wise to the new 4, believe me, no one will mistake one for the other.

Agreed, the difference is substantial to say the least. And this is just the front view. The side and rear view differ just as much with the new sportback C pillar styling.

Don't care about the cup holders and the seat stitching too much. Otherwise, great job BMW for pushing the boundaries. Beautiful!!!

Meh, it's ok. Just like the F30 3er, I hate how the headlights bleed into the grill. That side vent - excuse me, "Air Breather" - just doesn't look right. I expect the front and especially the rear facia to be toned down for production. Like the F30 interior, I hate how the top of the dash swoops down over the wood/aluminum in front of the passenger seat.

Overall, I don't regret having sold my E92 for an A5 S-Line instead of waiting for this...

I am concurring with what many have said before me; this is a very eloquent design for the new 3 series coupe, oops I mean 4 series coupe the F32.

Likewise on what others have also said, it would be a nice thought if this was the M Sport trim considering its new aggressiveness or if it were to become the eventual M Sport trim i.e. maybe the LCI F32 M Sport.

What I am getting at here is, please don't change a thing between this "concept" and the actual production model. It is without a doubt a very desirable car.

I don't see a regular 4 Series Coupe, fully optioned out being that. You can get a fully optioned 6 for that money. Doesnt make sense marketing wise.

Bring me the order sheet. My plan is to get 435 or 440 then upgrade to M4 just like I did before.

What a beauty!!!!

I was talking about an M4 vert being $90K, not a regular 4 series coupe.
