435 Gran Coupe in the flesh in Alabama!!!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Here are some pictures I took today after I test drove the 435 gran coupe this morning. It was a fantastic drive. I am about 5'7" in one of the pictures you can see I'm sitting in the backseat and I have an entire hand length between my knee and the front seat, so plenty of room in the backseat for most.

so... what do you guys think? will these sell like hotcakes? I'm getting my first BMW this summer, 435i cvt ED. I think it'll only be practical for a few years, then maybe I can trade it in for a CPO 435 GC

If the sun doesn't shine on it, it's black.

It's probably the best looking sedan in the lineup right now. Thanks for the pics.

5'7" which means you would eat your knees and head if I sat in the front seat at 6'6", you're not in Asia

i'm 5'10", sat in a CLA, an A3, an A5, and a 428i, the 428i had the biggest back space of all four, but partly due to my short torso and that the bmw had flatter back seats as opposed to bucket seats like the CLA. the seats feel thinner, but also because of that, they feel cheaper, less plush, but probably are lighter.

Best. 3/4 series design. Ever! Un-freakin-believable.


No manual still makes this a no-go for me. And I will be sure to call it a chicks car so anyone who gets one will suffer the wrath of my jealousy.

I am looking at a white 428 GC right now. Loaded with red leather. I want to know what the lease payment will be.

Carbon Black is hard to capture in pics... But trust me it's stunning. My E46 M3 is CB... Wish I could have got my F30 in it.

Lease payment was too high - $816/month, 15,000 miles per year on a $57,862 car. That is more than our 2014 528 that was $66k MSRP.
Max MSDs too. I can't do that.

+1, the 4 Coupe and the Gran Coupe both look great.. I think I would have gone Gran Coupe had it been available with a MT. Such a sweet car and I actually love the hatch.
