Love this video. By far the most compelling presentation of this car so far and it's not even in M Sport form here.

Front end is too similar to the 3-series for me, but the back end is fantastic; looks extremely wide and muscular.

IF only it had a full panel glass roof like the A5/S5 Coupe does..

The small sunroof seams ridiculous by comparison.

It's your standard fare marketing BS
Esthetics, flowing lines, sensual...
To summarize
We took the E92, gave it a f30 facelift, and we hope we can charge a bit more for it, so we gave it a higher model number name
There is nothing remarkable about the car, Nothing really new
It's a 2 door f30
Only thing worth mentioning is the air grill in the fender
That's about it

I like it, but to say this is the essence of BMW design and all that BS is just a little too much

I feel this is step in the right direction but no where near the positive reaction I felt when the e92 was introduced. I still have faith the M team will make the m4 amazing though. As long as they don't stay conservative that is.

Looks great in this video. Too bad it doesn't come with dramatic lighting that follows you around. It doesn't look half as good in the photos of it in more realistic lighting.
