Looks good...a cross between an E90 and a F10....let's just pray that it drives in a traditional 3 series manner!

This is the 4er GranCoupe ... an/the 4-Door Coupe of the 4er Coupe-/Convertibe-Line.

There comes three 4er ... F32 4er Coupe(2-door), F33 4er Convertible and F36(35?) 4er GranCoupe(4-door).

The only sedan is called 3er F30!

yeah, I know it's a 4er 4 door coupe, but wasn't sure about the GranCoupe part of the name so I said "sedan" (a little missleading, I know my mistake)

I believe the new "4er Coupe" is scheduled for a Spring 2013 release as possibly a 2014 model.

Scott can you please confirm this is the rough plan?

What a great way to start off the work week, walk in and boom! My first images of the F30.

Not much can be said as the pictures aren't exactly the clearest but I can say, so far, so good. Can't wait to get my hands on this for a test drive...

Wonder what other goodies besides HUD will we be getting?

Exactly what came to my mind as well... very simple, nothing ground breaking if you ask me!

The rear certainly looks like the 5 series and (from a distance) this F30 could certainly be mistaken for a 5 series by average drivers. Still, it might just be the angle that this photo is taken, but the F30 headlights does suggest hints of the F20 1 serie's headlights, but it seems to be done more tastefully than the 1 series.

Of course, the really important question, as some posters have already implied, is the performace and handling. We've seen some criticism that the F10 seem to have lost a bit of it's previous sportiness (a debatable point-others say the F10 is just fine), but when it comes to the 3 series, BMW really don't want to lessen the performance or handling edge.
