The 4-series is one of the most striking cars in the world, especially in that blue color.

So BMW hasn't got anything special for Geneva, unlike Merc, Audi, Volvo, Jaguar, etc etc. What a shame they aren't showing the M4CS and M2 CS at least!

I didn't want to be a debbie downer in this thread but I've been feeling the exact same way. Mercedes shows up w/ an eye-catching concept car, Audi with its RS5, Porsche w/ its flashy Panamera wagon, LR w/ the Velar, Lexus with it's beautiful new LS which makes the 7-series look like a boring Toyota in comparison, etc.

And BMW wonders why they're getting gobbled up by the competition lately.

Is that 4 series Long Beach Blue? If so, why doesn't the US get that option on the 3/4?! Gorgeous color!

A pretty boring offering for such a major show. Just look at Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin Ferrari they are all coming out with some interesting designs and pushing performance boundaries

BMW seems to want to be a steady middle of the road family brand

BMWs big release was the touring, which is a very nice car and, and it is important for them in Europe, as Scott mentioned elsewhere. Still wishing there was a way to get it to the US. Just because the North American manufacturers trained the market to buy trucks and SUVs with selective pricing doesn't mean we all are truck drivers.

Move along, BMW. Let the real automakers make the press releases.

Are you guys dumb? They showed the LCI 4er / M4 and the new 5 series touring. why would they show other cars like the M4 CS and M2 CS when they arent even ready yet...wtf. did you guys forget about the ALPINA B5 also, Rolls-Royce Ghost with Diamond Paint Finish and AC schnitzer i9 and AC Schnitzer ACL2S which had there first reveal at geneva..*sigh*.. what did merc show at the paris show? nothing.. what did ferrari show last year at geneva? nothing.. atleast BMW did show a new car or something each year than other manufacturers showing f*ck all some years.

You need to go sit in the new 5/7ers and take a look at the camera tech they have...light years away from the competition. You can pan away in 360 and almost see yourself sitting behind the wheel. Enjoy your Honyota!

You are correct, and it's available now on the MY2018 Fxx 4 series Line.

New front lights on M4 look really nice, IMO. Suit the front end.
