Yeah you're right. In that case, having a difference of more than $4k with the F30 and F32 seems possible. While we won't like the price, the only hope is that there would be standard options to justify the price but knowing BMW, no one is really holding their breath...lol

Let me pile on and say that the side vent, especially in black, just doesn't look right. I like the elongated rear quarter window, though. In profile, the car looks an awful lot like the E92...

Need to see official pics to make better judgement. A few initial reactions:

- If its not broke dont fix it. 3er coupe has worked well so I dont see need for the fastback look. E92 roofline looks better to me.
- Black side vents look bad.
- Side skirt is boring and should be like E92.
- Front end will look better than F30.

hey so how much more would you guys be willing to pay for the coupe, i don't know if I would want to pay $5000 extra than what I paid for an 335i M-Sport, if there was no power increase, if it was around 350 HP i would consider it, but if the acceleration is same as a sedan i don't see a point in getting a smaller car that is as fast as the sedan imo

It's looking good! Not sure I like the 440 name though... 435 works better in my opinion.

I would also like to point out the gloss black trim on the rear bumper.

So looks like: front lip, side vent thing, and rear bumper all have those cosmetic additions

I definitely do not like that. Here's to hoping it can be painted

Cool render MrClean, but you grafted too much bumper on, making it look longer than the car in the spy pics.

that side vent aint right, bet it'll look right on the M3, bmw fcuk u. if you cant get it right on the non M cars, dont put half hearted design elements on there just to introduce more disparity between M cars and Non M cars. Obviously the decission is yours of coz, but dont insult buyers.

well they decided not to use those side badges in the US on the F30, but in Europe (at least most locations) they all say Sport, Luxury, or Modern...

This is just a "Concept" form and not final production for the US, I doubt US bound Coupes will say Sport or whatever else on the side.

The coupes now are still more expensive than the sedans but I hope it won't be a 7,500+ price jump between the 3/4 series. If anyone knows a realistic number to expect let me know!
I was told that here in Europe the price is going to be only slightly less compared to the 5er limousine with the same engine.
Explanation: Mercedes is selling the E Coupe (technically a C Class) for substantially more money compared to the 3 series Coupe. The "4" name should fix this margin-earning and image problem.
