it appears to have some of the concept. look at the curvy detail of the lower grill opening. its a rounded smile.. its hideous but its still just like the concept just toned down some.

If only Audi would ditch that God forbidden 2.0T engine. . . .
Just get the S5 with the 3.0T supercharged engine.

I hope those wheel gaps are just due to X-drive and winter wheels

Wow. Looks just like the concept. Sigh ...

Well, at least it will have the much-anticipated updated powertrain (440i).

For our newer members who may not have seen these from last year.

Here's a review of a previously spotted production form 4 Series coupe (435i), which gives us a look at what's under the camouflage in the latest spy photos from today.

Damn that 4 series is looking fat next to the A5 which is already big in its own right.

Above it was said: We will see the production F32 4 Series Coupe revealed sometime this Fall, and production begins this July 2013 (for deliveries beginning late August-September).

Can someone please clarify that statement for it's not making sense to me. As I read it, it says that we will see the car in the Fall (Sept 21st or later), but initial deliveries will occur in the mid to late Summer (July and August). Now that really doesn't make sense to me.

I've been accused of "drinking heavily from the BMW cup," but even I wouldn't order one sight unseen and no test drive.

Looks big. I didn't like the old 3 series coupe because of the long door.

No Xenon/LED headlights and no LED taillights on a 435i = fail. Wake up BMW.

I bet the full LED headlights do indeed make it to production. Someone already spotted the option code on the F32 VIN lookup: 552 Full LED headlights.

I highly doubt the 4 series will look better than the A5
I'm sure it will whip it when it comes to driving pleasure
That's never been something audi does well (except the rs4)
But looks wise
The A5 still looks much better

I agree 100%. Letting accountants. I simply won't buy a "premium" car that does not use premium technology....that comes on volume cars because LEDs just make more sense and look better. Oh well. In ways I'm glad BMW seems intent on making the production version so mundane....it is great news for my bank account!

audi is still better, but lets wait and see the 4er once the camo is off.... interesting what is there - a "hot model" or the "girl next door with junk in the trunk"... time to take the clothes off, BMW

After all the pics of the 4 series concept, I really don't see the point of the camo. Is it really going to be that different?

If they are pitting it against the A5, these things are going to be $60K+ cars. That's quite a bit more than what I think a 3/4 series should cost. But then again, maybe not as the basic A5 is somewhat reasonably priced.

Whatever BMW do, I hope they don't come out 3 flavors of 4 series that nobody can readily tell what the difference is among them is. I know I can't tell what the difference is between an A5, S5 and RS5.
