Pictures of F32 435i vs F30 328i in LA Auto Show Parking Structure

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Saw a white F30 328i parked next to me. Only had my cell phone on me so apologies for the crappy quality. Tried to get as many angles as space permitted.

I know it's not an F30 335i but the body lines are similar enough. Both cars are stock suspension/body wise.

I know there is a very strong preference for M Sport on the internet, but I didn't want to wait for an ordered car so I just got a car that was on the ground. Plus I actually like the non-M Sport front better.

Both of the cars look absolutely hideous in Alpine White. In my opinion Alpine White does not do the 3er or 4er justice.

not on M-Sport though.. I kind of agree the darker colors are better on the non-M-Sport 3ers & 4ers, but I love AW on M-Sports!

lol I completely disagree, I'm not a fan of white cars myself (subjective opinion obviously) but the 4er (and 3er too) is the best looking car in the BMW lineup in alpine white IMO. I do have to say that the 4er with m sport is a MUCH better looking car than the other lines. I mean it takes the front end from below average/average to stunning.

amen. Any flat, character- and depthless, color on a car with shapes and forms is just wrong.

Sorry the front looks all wrong! M Sport is so much nicer. You need to change the wheels too!

+1 not on msport...AW is the best choice with this package, whether it be a 3, or a 4er

for that matter, on the F15 X5, the 6, the 6GC, the 7...AW with Msport is the best color on this hands down.

I agree with most of the comments here, Non M bumper looks hideous.
Maybe you should put your front plate on, that might make the car look less "TMNT-grin".

Did you get there around 3:30 this past Sunday? I think I walked by while you were taking these pics!

Damn, wish I had brought my white F30 to park with these cars, haha.

...now we must wait 6-7 years for a new chance to see BMW build some good looking 3 and 4-series cars. In the mean time, the new Mercedes C-klasse shows a lot of promise design-wise.

Your car is beautiful! Thanks for posting the comparison.

I personally also like the standard front bumper. Just think how unique your car will be on the road since most people prefer the M-sport.

Oh and don't take any of the other opinions posted here to heart.
