The thing is, the 6er Gran Coupe KIND OF has a niche for itself, as there is no 4-door 6er-comparable car (so effectively, a CLK/A7 competitor): the 5 is smaller and the 7 is far, far bigger.

The 4er Gran Coupe would compete against the 3er and the 5er. I think that's a bit too crowded a space.

Owning an A5 Sportback I've long hessitated to go for the F30 3 series, but love the styling of the gran coupe 6. So this 4GC is exactly to my liking and budget. 5 series is too big for me and 3 series lacks the 'unique' styling. So IMO the GC coetes in a whole different class that the 3 and 5 series.

I hear what you're saying, but I just think that a) this will not be a large market at all (and will it even justify all the production costs?), and b) there will be terrible model line confusion. It's getting to be as bad as Mercedes' lineup - 1er, 2er, 3er, 4er, 4er GC, 5er, 5er GT, 6er, 6er GC, 7er, X1, X3, X5, Z4, and then the whole M line. Phew!

Can we have the wallpapers without Bimmerpost logo? I really want them to be as clean as possible.

I understand your concerns about buying an F30 now, but I have a 2013 and I've had NONE of the problems that I've read about on these forums, save for a loose left side taillight lens that was easily fixed by my dealer. I feel badly for all the people that have issues with their cars, but at the same time I'm really loving mine and would recommend one to anyone that asks me.

This holiday season, reach out to your family, call someone you love. It's never too late to say 'I told you so' or even 'the 4series concept looks nothing like the actual production car will'.

Gawd I wish BMW could do something about the extremely blunt | front end on their contemporary cars. I know its related to pedestrian safety, but it really detracts from what are otherwise spectacular designs.

Had my mind made up to go Japnese.
Hang up the stirrups and go mindless
with a Lexus, and now this!
I love this design. I always prayed
they would make a 5 Coupe.
This close enough.
Granted, if the price does go
up too much, that could be a deal
breaker. But Damn! Sucked in again!

Current is a 2011 335i Black.

Anyone seen the new 2014 Mercedes E63, the lower spoiler is virtually identical to the 4 series concept...

Yup, more shots here: http://www.autoblog.com/photos/2014-...photo-5547387/

Pretty interesting. I love the aggressive look (and that 0-60 in 3.6s)

I wish BMW would keep the lower spoiler of the 4 series concept on the production 4, I hope they don't water it down to much.

With them saying there is more "technic" on the 4 series, whatever that means, any idea what the rear suspension looks like on the concept? I can't find any pics that show any under the bumper shots of the car.

My real hope here is for some aluminum arms and links like the current 5er and e90, and Audis..... Really let down they went to an all steel setup on the F30 sedan, unsprung weight is the worst place to add it! (well, next to rotating, unsprung weight).

Climate dial?

It looks mostly like the 3 er interior, but they got rid of the manual climate dial below the center air vents, I wonder why?

Production of the F32 4 Series coupe starts July, so we won't see deliveries or in showrooms until August-September.

F33 4 Series convertible production starts in November.
