Walkaround video of the F36 4 Series Gran Coupe M-Sport in Estoril Blue

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
We haven't seen an F36 M Sport in Estoril Blue II I believe.

It does not have the 18's or 19's wheels from the M-sport package fitted tho...

I was very indifferent to the release of so many models by BMW, but the F36 is stunning!

i see people complain about this issue all the time. i don't see what the big deal is. should they get rid of everything so we all drive a 3 or a 5 series? i like having so many options and choices. variety is the spice of life!

each person is different and has their own tastes. with all these models then i am sure it will attract more people and they can find one that fits them.

i really like the look of the 4-series, but i want 4 doors. i would love to get one of these.

Indifferent meaning I neither had a good nor bad opinion about. Simply a very different BMW than what most are accustom to. That being said I think it is a great move as like you said it allows BMW to access more customers needs/interests

I like it!

I would not trade my F30 335i for a 435i but I would trade for the F36 GC for sure if I had the opportunity.

I like the frame-less doors, the rear door panels, better looking M-Bumper, the ability to clean your rear window very easily and the lower driving position that it has.

Kudos for BMW.

yea my bad. i meant every time BMW releases something new, there is hordes of complaints that they have too many models. if you don't like it, then ignore it and stick to your e46 that you keep posting pics of. can't please anyone these days.

Real M? Fake M?

Beautiful car.
I don't think BMW will make a M4 Gran Coupe, it would be great.

I'm going to say this again. To the ether. The internet. Pluto. Whoever is listening: Estoril Blue (and EBII) is the greatest color ever bestowed upon a production vehicle.

Looks great!

Nevermind variety, although I agree to some extent. I just don't get why people *don't* want BMW to make these cars so they can rake in more dough and put it into R&D.

They can't go on forever and ever just making and selling the 3's and 5's. I mean, I don't see how they could simultaneously compete and innovate with just those models for too long.
