f32 doesn't look that good on picture

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
When i see a 4 coupe i always have the feeling something is wrong with the front and the f30 looks better on picture. But everytime i see a 4 in real i really love, a lot more then the f30. Others have the same opinion?

No, i just think it looks better on photos and in real life. It is meant to be anyway.

I think it looks better always, in pictures, in person or in my dreams. I love the F32, that's why I bought one!

I agree and it seems like many others on this forum do as well. Tons of people have been saying "Oh man, it looks way better in real life than in photos." I think that's true of most cars, to be honest. Lighting and perspective are such critical components and it's hard to get the full effect from a photo.

Yes but with the 4 it seems that in certain angles from the front it doesn't "fit" very well. What the hell, what i am complaining about...

i hate to say it but after seeing photos of the front end of the M235i, it makes me believe it's the 4 series front end done right...that bumper looks sick as all hell while the 4 series just looks kind of weird in pictures...in real life it looks nice and aggressive but the M235i's already looks great in pictures and i'm sure it'll look even better in real life...it's just too bad the rest of the M235i is kind of bland...as for the 3 series M Sport, i like that bumper better than the 4 as well

the rest of the 4 series is awesome though, better looking and sleeker, IMHO, than it's sedan counterpart and for me it's more practical size-wise than the M235i...i can't imagine trying to fit anyone in the rear seats of that 2

I've posted a few pictures of my 4 on here and I have to agree that it's very upsetting how the car looks at certain angles. This one in particular makes the front look retarded:


But other angles, like the one in the F30post banner, does the car a lot more justice.

I've noticed this as well on both f30 and f32 and find msport treatment often helps make it look better, also noticed this with the new X5. Looks much much better in real life.

I agree as well. When I first saw pictures, I thought it looked kind of awkwardly proportioned, and like the estoril blue pic, the front didn't look right. But when I saw the 4 for the first time in person, I was like holy hell O_O What is that!?! It looked soo good!

I personally was disappointed with the F32 MSport in person - prefer the photos. I've been to the dealer three times now to check myself. To me, the lines were lost in black. Mineral grey looked better. White was by far the best.

I like the F30 better. You know what they say about opinions...

I may be one of very few that likes the f30 a lot more than the f32. And that goes without saying that I love the new M3 and dislike the M4!

Im sorry I had to

Im sorry I had to
there's absolutely no need to apologize for having an opinion! if we all had the same tastes, there'd be just 1 style of car and that would be a sad, sad world!

I 100% agree. I don't know why?

Having said that, even in real life, I was slightly underwhelmed by the F32. It did not feel/ look much better than the LCI E92.....

I am not trying to be divisive btw, just my personal opinion

I thought it was 'meh' until I saw it in EBII in person -- I had only seen it in black (lines don't show as well) and white (that hood cut line is hideous, sorry just IMHO). The first time I saw it in EBII is when I decided to give it another look. (picked MG though, as the wife preferred that I get sport line)

F32 MSport is simply a beautiful car. Didn't expect my friend with S5 to be so envious.

BMW hit a home run with this generation of Bimmers across its line-up.

Dare I say best all-around gen for all models in BMW history? Even those 5-star dual spoke variations we see are so much better than 99.9% of aftermarket wheels (see post above). So sick.

I agree, the current bmw lineup is killer...all their car series are awesome and good looking cars and their SUVs are great too.
