It's hilarious to read all the above bitching about the size and styling of a car that's nearly completely covered in camo - both swirly tape and plastic add-ons.

I see you finally found ways to get your photographers motivated if they spent less time watching Glee.
Now if they spend less time watching "Jersey Shore" they might get the Cabrio and X5.

perhaps it will be similar to a smaller 6er since the f30 is being referred to as the baby 5er

With that sleek back window/trunk they could easily make it a hatchback.

One thing to consider on size - the A5 is probably just as big. Would be interesting for someone to actually size this car in a graphics program from the pic. Looks like 17" wheels so there is a good reference point.

The only thing anyone can tell from this picture is that it has two doors, the Hofmeister Kink, quad headlights, four wheels. That being said it does appear to have a more E46/36 style trunk!

Too soon to say

Being a huge fan of the E92 I think this car has quite a spot to fill. The E92 has a design that has kept growing on me ever since its introduction.
That being said I don't think I see enough right now to say anything about the F32 yet. I like what appears to be really wide kidney grilles up front. I like the wide grille of the Z4.
Keeping my hopes up for this one. I wonder if BMW will differentiate it more from the F30, than they did with E92 vs E90.
Keep them spy shots coming

I believe it is supposed to be a little bit different (more than the E90 and E92/3)

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

You are correct sir.

The real tail lights are underneath the camo.

Umm... No.

The problem with your logic is the 4-series is a 3-series coupe. It is a 3-series chassis, with 3-series running gear, with two-doors.

Please people, don't let the number "4" trick you. It is marketing.

The 6-series is a completely different case. It is not a two-door 5-series.

People.

This is a 3-series coupe. The are not lengthening the normal F30 chassis to make this car.

It is simply a F30 with two-doors, and different body panels.

well the F30 is already longer and wider, is their confirmation its the same chassis? is the 6 the same as the 5? is the A5 the same as the A4?
