Are they incapable of puting that hood line down with the headlights line and make it natural and almost invisible? seriously?

they look like a beautiful picture with a stripe in the middle. Shame!

4 series looking hot. Not digging the front bumper but that most likely won't make it into production.

I know I am in the minority, but PLEASE BMW, offer a sunroof in the 4-Series and M4. I use my sunroof every chance I get in my E92 M3 and would surely miss it if it weren't an option...

Gran Coupe with four doors is like having a Mini Sedan with two doors, I don't get the point.

It's "sleeker" bla bla.
A true 4 door hardtop would be badass but I doubt we'll ever see one again due to rollover standards.

A lot of styling aspects are not making it.

There are some revealing photos of the actual productions model. It almost looks like a different car.

Overall the 4 Coupe is pretty nice. Just wish the front end of the hood incorporated the kidney grill like the E46. It would have looked much cleaner. That horizontal edge is an eyesore!

I like the looks of the new 4 series concept. I hope it stays that way as a production model. But then, I can honestly say that I have never bought a car for what it looks like, although there are some cars I've refused to buy because I felt them just too butt ugly to consider, and of those, only the prior generation 5 and 6 series were cars that I'd have otherwise at least considered, on some level, buying.

In the next 5 years, though, I'll be a divorced 50-something professional whose kids are all grown and out of my house, so perhaps then a car's appearance will matter more. The new 4 series is the top contender as the replacement for my E92, mainly because beautiful as it is, the 6 series is just not practical enough given that a normal adult can't sit comfortably in the rear seat, even for a short period.

Can we have a slow panning video of the tails? I know it has a great 3D effect, but it would look even more amazing to see it in motion since looking at a screen is only 2D.

Love the tails & the headlamps!

I hate to go against the grain but I prefer the smooth classy lines of the M6. The "4" series looks like it has too much going on in the front and back to appreciate the details. The front bumper makes it look like a prepubescent kid wearing over-head retainers. The side profile for the 4 series looks good though.

I like it...looks aggressive. Wait until the msport version of it comes out! As soon as its out on the streets, the e92 will look outdated...

Are you crazy?! Like seriously, you must have list it; posting something that ridiculous. The kidney grille is BMW's moniker; the most recognizable element for any auto company in the game. You might as well tell 'em to change their logo. While your at it, tell McDonald's to get rid of the "golden arches"...wtf!

Hi. Did someone noticed the the front bumper resemblance with the new AMG front bumper from the new face lift E Class? Of course the AMG will use that lines also on the new upcoming S Class AMG.

Not to be a jerk, but when you make a video, please take advantage of the fact that it's video and MOVE THE CAMERA! We've seen plenty pictures. What is the point of posting a video from static viewpoints?

As for the car, exterior is decent but not special, and the interior is terrible. This car will be boring by time it's in it's production form.
