Sorry, not feeling it. Its just as ugly as the A5.

What a waste.

And if the price is going up....I'll keep my E90 M3 and buy an X3 for the winter.

It will go up. That is the part I am interested to see.

How much do they think they can up charge for the number 4?

If it looks anything like the concept, I won't be disappointed one bit. Also, those cupholders are badass

Ugly, and A5 in the same sentence? I know everyone has their own opinion, but...

Reality check. BMW "Concept" debuts never keep the extreme bumper design characteristics. The silver car being loaded onto the transport is indeed the 435i (or 440i).

Not sure how many times we have to write in this thread.

The following will NOT make it to the production version:
  • Lower front/rear bumper intakes and design
  • Side mirrors
  • Door handles
  • Wheels
  • Crazy mesh stitching

The following will likely make it to the production version:
  • Front and rear light design
  • Individual interior options
  • Length/width/etc measurements
  • Sheet metal design
  • Boomerang vent (although not as extreme)

I would have understood it if they said 3 series coupe...

so why even bother with the name change ??

Just simply call it the 4 series... or 3 coupe ... but 4 series coupe 2 door ?? LOL


Sure what a concept !
I think they are making a 4 Grand Coupe as well....can't wait for that. I just hope they lose the side fender vent. And we know they will also change the rear view mirrors :-(

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!!!!!!!!

But......

Likes fairly similar to the A5 with its overall lines and shape. Plus they where stupid enough to copy Audi by giving there sedans and coupes two distinct names. Not only does a 435i sounds kinda dumb, but its now gonna be an M4??? Sooooooo stupid! If I bought one, first thing I would do is switch the badge.

A lot of people have their hopes up for this car. They do not want to be disappointed. They need something good, so they can look passed the goofy side vents.

Aside from the stylized rear bumper of the concept car, a clear resemblance can be seen. Through the fabric on the production model, you can see the same shape for the taillights and the same cut lines for the top portion of the bumper.

Looks nice. Hopefully many of the fancy design features are here to stay in the production version.

That spied model, and the concept are the same, minus the rear bumper area. Every sheet metal line is identical, from side to back.

Smart move by BMW to release these concept pictures first.

I have a feeling the real life version will be underwhelming.
