Spotted a 4 Series Convertible

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This 'vert was parked with two other BMW NA cars, one an F30 sedan (with only one exhaust pipe and no badge), and a 428i xdrive M-sport.

Admin Edit:

What's interesting about this particular car is that it's a Modern Line 4 Series Convertible (unavailable for the U.S.), as well as sporting an M Sport steering wheel, M shift knob and manual transmission. The U.S. 4 Series convertible has not been announced as being available with manual transmission. See official 4 Series convertible details.

The 4 Series Convertible will make its world debut at the LA Auto Show next month.


Here's the 'vert (apologies for crappy pics):

The sedan it was next to must be a euro-only car as well. It had a lot of test equipment in it. The coupe looked like a regular US-spec 428i M-sport. Notice the camo on the front Roundel but not on the back Roundel of the 'vert.

Maybe the F30 was a 328d. That has a single pipe.

My 2012 135i will be my last new BMW unless the company gets back to building cars for enthusiasts.

I'm not a huge fan of the fog light trim either but I think it's a good looking car. And with a manual transmission? Awesome!

Agree with all of the negative comments. Isn't there anyone in that design studio who can stop the excessive styling, example the silver trimmed fog lights.

The roof looks identical to the e93! Hard to tell difference from side profile.
