Looks like we'll have to add Old English/Lemon Pledge to the interior detail kits.

Great detail in the interior, looks great. Would look even better on the interior of a Dodge Ram, though.

It seems like the rear bumper has a diffuser that outlines the shape of what the M-Sport diffuser will look like (in black of course). In the concept its an actual exhaust but in production form it will carry the same shape similar to the 6-Series M-Sport.

Non M-Sport will get the same rear bumper that we saw the lines of in the picture with the dude driving it into the trailer.

I feel like the general shape of the front bumper will carry over. Maybe slightly toned down. Remember the coupe is going to be sporty bu nature so BMW can take some liberties with the aggressiveness assuming 4-Series buyers want something sportier in the first place.

I'm waiting for engine information. That should be interesting. If the 4-series doesnt drop with a new 6-cyl engine, I wont be disappointed because i like the N55 but I will be disappointed...

Homework for BMW:

I don't care that you guys decide to name different the Coupes

BUT

4 Series Coupe has 3 doors (Ok, 2 plus trunk , <but who knows maybe a hatch like the old 3 Series ti will also make sense>)
3 Series has 4 doors...

Since you change the badge... just saying...

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I'm still not digging the fender detail - still feels so tacked on (sort of like a reverse hoffmeister kink but tossed in front and flipped around - maybe to link the design cues??).

Overall I love this design - one sexy car.

BMW Concepts almost always are production ready. Sometimes we get i8-like designs, but even with that, BMW looks to be changing very little.

Anyway, I think this looks awesome. I'll be readying a down payment for the switcharoo from my 335i for this, next year.

Wow! This car is really good looking. First BMW design i am really drawn to since the E60. Finally... BMW CAN make a good looking car again.

I really like the front bumper and the textured lines vs the std and very flat f30 front bumper. Reckon it is possible to swap the front bumper and headlights to the f30? It is either thT or after market m sport front bumper for me.

Like the glossy interior and it is indeed a step up from f30

Listen, I really think this concept is stunning. It looks like nothing I have ever seen before. I'm just a wee bit skeptical that any of the things "that make it stunning", will actually make it into production. I would be happy with just a baby 6 series. But, I doubt it will look nothing like this amazing sculpture here.
Sure, we can touch base then. This is a stylized concept like the previous 6 series coupe and gran coupe concept cars were, but it is very close to the production look. That being said, things will change. Those things will most likely be the front and rear bumpers, wheels, side mirrors, and the braided leather on the interior. Basically, these are parts that can vary between the lines/versions/options on the car anyway. What will remain the same is the sheet metal and overall shape of the car. The production model will be toned down from this, though I suspect will still look pretty good.

Gotta remember thatt the bumpers on the concept are probably one of the things on the car that will change the most for the production version.

Excited for next year to get this car. The base price for the 4 series will be 39-50k depending on the model and xdrive. You guys are straying too far from the f30 prices and the current e92 prices. There is no way the f32 is going to be THAT much more expensive than the current f30 pricing
