Thumbs up BMW 4 Series M Sport Reveals More Aggressive Face Than 3 Series

BMW 4 Series M Sport Reveals More Aggressive Face Than 3 Series

If you couldn't already tell from the torrent of spy photos featured on the BIMMERPOST homepage, manufacturer testing season has opened on the Nurburgring.

On the track today was this F32 4 Series (435i) with M Sport package revealing for the first time the aggressive shape of the M Sport front bumper. Compared to the F30 3 Series M Sport front fascia, the 4 Series M Sport bumper is more angular, with air vents that angle upwards and expands as it gets closer to the outside of the front bumper. The side shot also shows that it incorporates splitter fins which extend quite far out, adding to the aggressive look.

The lighter camouflage also reveals what looks to be Air Curtain vents in the M Sport bumper (which improve air flow around the wheel arches and reduces turbulence).

The rear bumper and sideskirts' camouflage remains the same, but it's not difficult to make out their shape and lines.

This prototype wears the 19" M Sport wheels (Style 442 M) on the rear. The front wheels are from 3 Series M Sport package and will not be offered as a factory option for the 4 Series M Sport. The other M Sport wheel which will be offered are 18" Style 441 M wheels. You can see what that looks like in the 4 Series Dealer Order Guides (which also contains lines, options, packages information).

Production of the 4 Series coupe begins this July and the 4 Series convertible begins production in November. Expect a reveal before production begins.

The US will get the 428i and 435i coupes, in RWD and xDrive versions. In its first model year (2014), the 435i coupe will be powered by the same N55 engine as the current F30 335i sedan (with the same power output) and the 428i is likewise powered by the same N20 engine as the current F30 328i sedan.

It's undergoing high speed cornering so the suspension is much more compressed than how it will look when parked.

Wonder if parts like the bumper will be cross compatible with the F30.

Bumper definitely will not. The 4 series is wider than the 3 series. Not to mention the lights and kidney shapes different too.

This bumper looks great! Love how the splitters stick out.

Looks similar to the f30 msport lol. I wonder if the m performance parts for the f32 are going to be the same as the f30. Like the msport splitters, sideskirt panels, etc. Interested to see what the exterior m performance parts are going to be

How is this blowing the F30 out of the water? It has an identical looking lower center piece, yes the outer areas have a bit more aggressive angle to them. But Christ, the msport of the E90 vs E92 were entirely different. I would've expected more this time around, especially with the new 4 moniker. Which is quite laughable at this stage how similar the cars are. Maybe it will be more drastically different with the next models as a member stated. But then again, the F30 and F32 look more related than the E90 and E92. So I don't get it.


And don't get me wrong, they both are great looking cars (the coupe is shaping up to be really good looking). My point is the differences have seemingly become less drastic, which is the exact opposite of what should've happened.

(Still all premature due to camo)

Too low. Your car's ride height is PERFECT. Anything lower than that looks stupid IMO.

I don't dislike the image because it is going through a corner. If that was a normal ride height (it will never happen),
