Everything looks fat, wide, and low. Aggressive wheel arches and minimal wheel gap.

The question arises: how low, fat, wide and aggresive etc will the M4 be?

I love the look right now, just wondering how BMW is going to make the M version even more aggressive?

You win the entire internet!

So, materials aside, the interiors look identical.

Never been so excited about a new bimmer since the e46 M3.
What a winner!

Me not like: interior design in general, engine hood is too high compared to other proportions of the car, side fender air slot position and design.
Would like to see the front fog lights (or whatever they named them) turned on and see what visual lighting effect they give as they are positioned in a very interesting way deep into the bumper.
The thing with BMW is the concept is usually the finish product.
If you look at their previous concept cars. They are pretty much the same as the actual car.
So I can safe to say that this will be how the road car look.

Not in this case since we've already spotted the actual coupe.

Below will clearly not make it to production:

-Mirrors
-Door Handles
-Bumpers

However, the car looks awesome and I can not wait to see the M4 and / or the M-Sport version.

This will be a winner for sure!

So if we see this next summer, how long until M-Sport package is available?

I can never remember how/why BMW staggers this. Is there a compelling reason not to have it available at vehicle launch? I'm trying to give them more money

BMW needs to lengthen the side vent. It looks like an after thought. Almost as if they are stickers

It may look good, but I hate to see what the weight of this car will be. For all those people who come back with "they will use more HSS, Al, etc. to keep the weight the same". Imagine how much lighter it could have been then if it would have stayed the same in size, instead of growing.

I know they are making room for the 2-series, but still. I call this car a beautiful porker, aka Miss Piggy.

It's only 0.7 inches longer, and that appears to be mostly the design of the (plastic) lower front and rear bumpers. (Hard to tell because the angles in the comparison pictures aren't identical, but with identical wheelbases it's unlikely the steel frame is any longer.)
It's only a half-inch wider, and that's a good thing for both styling and performance.
And it's fully 2.7 inches shorter, so this coupe might actually be lighter than the sedan.

if one ignores the bumpers I think we can see a more realistic production car... and I think it looks fantastic

Wow!

What a tremendous win for BMW. If they adjust/correct the electronic steering to the E90/M benchmark, this will be my next come 2014.

The F30 looks very dated in comparison, it doesn't even look like it belongs in the same generation. If the F32 really is only 2000 euros more than the F30, there are going to be a lot more coupes on the road this time around.

This is what I'm not quite sure why people don't understand. THIS Is what the real one will look like. Kind of a decent difference. Still awesome though. Just not near as aggressive as the concept. Rear bumper of the sport line one in spy pics is a lot duller.
