Looks good but I couldn't justify the price of a 4er Gran Coupe (assuming it's going to carry a pretty significant premium over the 4er/3er) when it doesn't differentiate that much from the 3er unlike the 6er to the 5er which at least has it's own interior.

Great render, but again, that thing just looks humongous. I think the sloped rear actually is the culprit for the larger size perception I'm getting on my end.

Not sure if it will happen, but I would love an M4 Gran Coupe in my garage!

Nice work. Please eliminate the cheap looking fender vents, since BMW couldn't figure it out.

Looks good. If it looks like a smaller 6 GC (presumably it will), may have to trade my F30 in on one. I love the 6 GC, or at least the M6 GC.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Rest assured it won't look that good. It will probably be something along the lines of the Audi A5 Sportback, with a longer roof line and shorter boot, for headroom space reasons (otherwise it will just look like the sedan). Which sucks, because the 6-series gran coupe looks extremely good but it's not realistic to expect the 4-series to look that good (hopefully I am wrong !)

Looks fabulous !! The rear part looks very much like 6 Gran Coupe. This render might be close to the production version cos we have seen spyshots before. Look at this recent post: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=884560

The rear end in the render looks more like what I imagined the 4GC to look like. That is, a smaller 6-series GC. While I certainly hope it ends up that way, the mules appear to have a much bulkier rear end.
