Status, primarily. 6 > 4

There are tangible benefits, as well, such as more luxurious appointments, more powerful engine choices, and a bigger car, if that's what you're after.

Not implying that I'd make that choice, but just saying.

A look at the production model spy pics should tell you that the production bumpers will be different.

4 series, hands down.
The 6 still is an awesome beast though.

The 4 looks better compare to 6 series, in my opinion. Especially interior. I bet that interior on the 4 series will be costly

Replace the rear bumper and rear driver and passenger windows of the 3-series with those from the 6-series, and you have a winner.

They are both beautifully designed coupes. I prefer the 4 series based on this comparison.

IF one more person makes a comment about the bumpers I'm going to go off the deep end. I mean, really, how many times do people have to say they're "concept" bumpers and will be toned down?

Sheesh.

Oh what a suprise they're practically identical. Hate how all of the new BMWs are practically the same no diversity. Loved how the old 3 series looked nothing like the 5 or the 7 and so on

Call me crazy, but I actually see more of a relation to this back end in the Concept 4...

Especially in the trunk (boot) lines, and the overall kinda round shape. I just can't stop looking at this car. I would hang a picture of this car in my bedroom wall if I was a kid.

Who is going to buy a 6 series now?! If the current price differential from 6 series to E92 remains in place, i.e. $20-25K, I don't see many people buying the 6.

Makes me think either a) the production F32 isn't going to look as nice, or b) there is going to be a big price bump over the E92.

The production 4er will not look like this so until then, I'm gonna hold final judgement. However, that 4 does look good.

Don't see how one affects the other. The 6-Series was never a volume seller to being with anyway and you wouldn't cross-shop these two models - they're two different cars for very different segments.

Still looks like a 3. But a sneaky ploy to rip off non enthusiasts!

Of course the interior of the 6er has certain more premium parts.
