Lightbulb F32 4 Series Studio Photos

F32 4 Series Studio Photos

COMMENTS

Generally, photos enhanced in post-processing, such as many of those used in BMW's official 4 Series release photos, look better than a relatively untouched photo. However, with the 4 Series, we dare say that it's looking best in 'natural' photos so far, such as in these from a live studio photo shoot.

It kind of bugs me that the intake on the left side is filled in and the right side is open... why not just punch a hole in both and make it symmetrical?

It's like that on the F30 too... An F30 owner I know thought a part was missing so we kinda panicked but then I googled some pics and found out it comes stock that way.. weird hay?

Geez that orange peel in the paint is horrendous. Studio photos really amplify the miserable paint job. It seems as each generation comes along the orange peel gets worse and worse. You can really see it on the 435i trunk badge shot.

on that note, the whole intake on the bumper looks like crap.

Really? E92 has some seriously comfortable back seats and I can only expect better on new 4.

I dont like the big "mouth" opening either. It's worse than the smiling f10.

So they have something to fix for the LCI

Definitely looks really weird.... wonder if it can just be cut off

Also the gray picture seems to have both intakes covered...

I'll risk getting flamed here, no matter how much red lipstick you put on a pig it's still a pig. I'm sorry these images are very disappointing. The e92 is way more appealing than this. The bimmerang in any color looks second thought. The duct on my 94 Mazda rx7 looked better than that and I paid 30K for it. The front end it's its just wrong. No other words. I'm trying to hold judgement until I see it live but each new thread hurts my eyes. There's a comparo thread with a white e92 pictured below a blue 4 series and I still think the e 92 looks better. Not happy. The M 'elves' better work some magic on M body panels and front end work.

I'm not completely agreeing with every word, but the e92 was much more revolutionary, the f32 is simply evolutionary. I was expecting more, and it looks like no time was spent on the behind. It just looks so simple. After all that waiting... Sigh*
