That's almost exactly what the 435i I ordered is going to look like on the exterior... Melbourne red, M-Sport package, 18" double spoke wheels, and M brakes. And after seeing these pics, I gotta say... I'm even happier with my selection, and even more impatient to get my car.

I don't understand BMW's concept of a red car with blue brakes... It doesn't make any sense to me.. police car? lol

Wow, all of these 4er M-Sport colors/pics are making me want a coupe again. I thought I was done with them.

Agreed! Ever since the configurator was live, I built all of the colors and thought the red would look great....And it does!

Yes, this bothers me. Especially when I see an M5/6 with orange ext. and blue brakes. Like the bimmerang, they should offer a color match or color choice on the brakes.

Saw it in person today

I happened by in Seattle as they were loading them all back up after a photo shoot. The bimmerang isn't nearly so distracting in person as in the photos. Everyone really needs to see a 4 before pronouncing judgement on them.

Damn I WISH the e9x had the little railing* looking thing coming from the middle of the dash on the passenger side. I HATE when ppl let there knees flop onto the gear shift area, its so annoying. :ben:

Saw this car on the 101 fwy in Woodland Hills Ca area. I think it looks nicer than out going e92 especially in MR but the side vent needs some perfecting. Overall nice lines and carries over the BMW coupe sportiness quite well.

You'd think the car they used for all these photos could at least not have stains in the beige carpet. love the exterior definitely sharp color on the msport. I would just go for black interiors for practicality.

These are not official photos by BMW, but our own photos.

They're press test cars that we drove, so of course they'll show regular use.

Jason thank you for the great pics of the 4 Series... I see a lot of 3 Series GT's in the background. Did you get any pictures of them while you were driving the 4 Series?

I am thinking about a GT for my wife and would like to see some shots of the different colors. Thanks

Really? In the reflection on the right side of the hood, there sure are a lot of blurry lines in that reflection. Looks like orange peel to me.

I completely understand that. Just a shame that the lighter interiors look that way with "regular use".

Sure, I have photos of an Estoril Blue GT that I'll post soon.

Black floor mats would provide an interesting combo, and if they could make the lower doors and other trim bits black it would be even better. This was seen on many red Porsches in the 80s and 90s, and still looks nicer than a sea of beige.

Sorry for the delay. See attached iPhone (admittedly crappy) photos of the new vehicles loading up from the NA launch photo shoot. Last photo is of 428i just as I was getting my chance to slide behind the wheel.
