Not a fan. Looks like the 3GT in some respect.

Looks far better than the 3GT - not nearly as ungainly and jacked-up.

I think it looks great. Rear headroom will be awful, but a worthy sacrifice to get those sexy lines. I too wonder about the pricing. Now why exactly did they do the 3GT again?

I'm no expert but I just don't see this getting a good reaction. The reason I think the 6gc was successful was because it was one of the sexiest cars made by BMW, the exterior I was premium and the interior followed suit. The squishy front of this car isn't suited to the platform. And since the 3-4 are essentially identical looks wise telling this apart from a 3, 3gt, ect is like pulling teeth. But fuck it build it. Some dumbass will spend 70+k on it.

This + M suit!

Since it has 4 doors, rear wheel arches will be agressive as the F80 M3. One can dream right?

Ditch the 3GT, make this the 3GT. The 4 GC should be more like the 6 series GC, not an Audi A5 sportsback :-(

It looks good, but it's damn close to a normal 3 series. Why not just get a 3? I love BMW, but the decision to make this car is a little weird to me.

Ugh, too many cars!
I liked when it was 3-series, 5-series, etc. Then the 3/4 separation happened to have 3 as a 4-door and 4 as a 2-door... Except now this 4-series 4 door. What next? Back to 3-series coupe?
This is just silly.

Give this man the prize. Though technically this would be the 4GT.

But yes, make a true 4GC a la the 6GC proportions.
