Using a touch screen while driving doesn't make any sense. iDrive works perfectly fine.

It's just starting to look like the 3 Series sedan in Coupe form. The cool front fascia is gone, the cool taillights are gone, the rear bumper is different, even the sexy looking interior has dulled to a standard looking BMW affair. I always knew the Coupe Concept was just a concept and the design would inevitably change but it just feels like a tease now knowing how good it could have looked.

Here's hoping the 4 Series Coupe can maintain it's own unique identity separate from the 3er.
I have to agree. The 4 series is starting to look exactly like a 3 series with two doors. Not that anything is wrong with this (I love the F30), but why bother with changing the name and all of the camouflage and hype!?

...it's well established the "4" is for marketing positioning purposes a-la A5/S5

interior = F30; exterior slightly different but still mostly = F30
my problem - I don't like F30. Still hope w/o camo F32 is significantly better looking (to me). If not, my last hope is 2er. and if that one is not my type, will go to another brand.

The rear interior looks pretty the same as my E92 and the overall body as well from the side view...I think I will keep my E92 until the F32 LCI...

Isn't BMW copying MB if they are adding the electric seat belt tensioner when you click it in or is this just a German thing? I know the new MB sedans come with this... it is weird at first like something is tugging at you, then you feel safe and snug

There is a huge sticker on the center console that reads "break in vehicle until 2006 km".
If that's how they test these cars, then break in is still required on the production versions.

Huge bins in the doors? Why BMW why? I can't stand that.

Seatbelt extender...a beloved feature of my E92 that never lets me down, so I don't understand all the hate for it. I quite like it. Better than reaching around for the belt, and better than having to climb under the belt when getting into the backseat if it were mounted to the front seat. In my view...great solution.

Not the honeymoon of the concept car to be sure though.

Really? I can't say they are a maker-or-break feature, but I don't hate them. The driver's one does work. The passenger one works until I have a passenger that doesn't know it's there and snaps it off.

E92 - 335i --> Xenons were standard. Not so the 328 back when I bought mine. Now, though, I think Xenons are now standard on both.

I love the seat belt extender. Try reaching back to get that seat belt when you're wearing a suit jacket. But even when not wearing something restricting it's really handy. Plus passengers always say how they like it. They usually say, "Where's the seatbel...oh. Wait, did it just hand it to me? That's nice!" Lol

Why do people keep making statements like this? The 4 series will cost $2000 more than the equivalent 3 series. It has been said over and over and over.

They are changing the number, not the car. For all intents and purposes it is still a 3-series coupe.
I was thinking the exact same thing. As expected, all of the 4 series nonsense is a load of marketing crap.
