Do your research before making such a claim. BMW has always charged more for their coupes then sedan form. Ever think to realize bmw is the trendsetter with the different model names for coupes and sedans... ever heard of the 5 series and 6 series, M5 or M6? In your eyes BMW copying audi LOL!

You are correct. I only hope they don't decide to increase the existing premium paid for the coupe because they changed its name.

yuck...these pics remind me of a limo. I really hope they call it a 4-series, and bring the next generation 3 series back to its roots to differentiate. I really hate the direction these cars are heading. The saddest part is that they are diluting the driving experience too.

You need to work on your reading comprehension. I said INCREASE the mark-up. I don't need to do any research or take any advice from you. Ill spell it out for you.The point I was making was that changing the 3 coupe to a 4 provides BMW the opportunity to increase the mark-up over the sedan.

That is what he was saying if you go back and read it again. And yes you are correct.

I am sure there's a reason for giving the two door cars even model numbers and the other cars odd model numbers. But doesn't a rose by any other name smell no less sweet?

The latest Autobild not only shows the kidney grille but unmasks the car.

Interesting. The kink in the side fender leading into the door was mocked up almost a year or so ago, it was a blue convertible mock up with a girl driving it, same profile as the convertible, think it was a autobild mock up from a while back, but really surprised how close that mock up got. Mind you that line it right off the new 6 series, but still.

A mini 6 series.

Edit: found it. It was May 2011.

Did you just link to a video of a $100,000 Mercedes Benz c63 black series coupe with a limited run of production (less than 200 units) as a viable replacement rather than waiting for the new 4 series coupe?

Why not post a pic of the space shuttle, just as reasonable as an option.

If thats the real pic, ughh. Thats what the new f30 front end should've looked like. More agressive front end. I should've waited. The horizontal shaped fog lights look way better as well.
