I want to know if tuning of the suspension and or steering is going to make it's way to the f30 or are they going to keep it F32 exclusive.

I would also want some insight into timing of the 4 GC and if the car will mirror the coupe with 28/35 RWD and Xdrive and offer a manual in the 435 and 428.

How do the lower cg and other suspension tweaks impact handling-specifically, times around the Ring vs a similarly configured F30?

1) Does the xdrive suspension on the 4 series have the same calibration as the F30's xdrive suspension calibration?

2) How come the 19 inch wheels have different aspect ratios in m sport (45 front / 40 rear) and sport line (40 front / 35 rear) trims?

Double exhaust

Hi,

I would like to know the following:

Will the 435d have a double exhaust left-right like the 435i or not?

I know that the German pricing guide says it won't, but I also read it will in some specialised German car magazines.

I don't know what to think now...

Thanks for informing.

Best regards,

Please ask them why they didn't add LED rear & front headlight (I already know why they did it but I want to know how they'd answer it)

Also, could you ask why they aren't using the new 2015 X5 Keyfob for the 4 series... or if they will be using the new keyfob?

Why isn't DCT offered? Did you consider offering it as an M-Sport option/package?

Does the couple still have sport suspension as standard? I looked at the BMW configurator and I don't see mention of sport suspension in either the M-Sport or Sport lines. I do see sport suspension mentioned in your link (http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=853135). Which one is correct?

Why is the X-Drive version of the 435i faster than the non X-Drive version, yet the same is not so for the 428i and 428i X-Drive?

I would wait for third party reviews.

But since the 335, the N54/55 seems to benefit from xDrive ...

This might be a bit of a reach, but will the next gen 4 series be more differentiated from the next gen 3? The E92 looked very different from the E90, and the F32 seems to be much closer to the F30 even though it's supposedly a new car now, isn't that a step in the opposite direction after rebranding it as a 4 series?

Thanks guys - I'd simply like to know when are we going to see full specs & UK pricing, preferably via an online configurator.

I'd also dearly like to moan about the inflexibility of the lines - I mean why can't I have a chromeline finish on an M Sport if I want!? But I appreciate you probably have better things to discuss

Rumor was a new engine replacing the N55 was going to be introduced with the 4 Series. When is that engine going to be available?

Same question here -- but at a higher level -- is the electronic steering going to be modified in the F32 differently than what it is in the F30 M-Sport?

I would like to know when will they offer the M performance package item(s) for the 4 series?

Also, if you do European Delivery, will these items be installed at no additional cost?
