Nothing wrong with it at all.
Looks good.
Not a fan of the side vent, it's over done.

That looks much more production than the concept front end with that HUGE lower gaping grin. It too was over done and I think this render looks better.

I can see why some coupe fans may be disappointed as BMW had said that they would make the coupe look different than the sedan, and distinctively different.
Other than having 2 doors to make it different, it doesn't look like anything other than a 3 series sedan coupe version, albeit with the Msport front end.
So, maybe that's supposed to be the big difference, the coupe will have the Msport front end as standard so as to make it more different than the standard 3 sedan.

The "gran coupe" otoh has a much more different look even inside compared to the F30 sedan. But that price premium is ridiculous for basically the same mechanicals.

Instead of making the same mistake they made with the E90's and the E92's.
WTF are you talking about?

Lots of people saying it looks too much like a 3 series? My understanding, maybe incorrectly, is that the 4 series is the 3 series coupe rebranded? No different than the E90 vs E92. BMW rebranded it as the 4 series rather than the market calling it a 3 series coupe and also focusing on the sporty side.

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.

Thats not a mistake, that was a bless. The e90 limo is ugly and to much business looking, and I drive one

Good observation. Maybe lowering is to reflect the M-sport package?


I agree though, looks a bit slammed.

Correct, but aside from the M3, what E90 looks anything like an E92? All pre-lci and lci variants have completely different headlights, kidneys, bumpers, and msport bumper etc.

This render is a 3 series with 2 doors, that's it.

The real 4 isn't going to look like that at all IMO

Nice render but I'm really hoping the 4 doesn't get the same front spoiler as the F30/31 M sport, it's one of the weakest in the range imo :/

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

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?!?!?!?!

Yep why does every render on here lack any creativity whatsoever and why does the front end hang lower than the rest of the car?
