Congrats, should be a noticeable jump in power for you. Let us know what you think after you get acclimated to the 430 how it compares to your 320.

i had a 320 as a loaner car when i bring in my F36 for service and i was disappointed with the overall experience on the 320. I am pretty sure you will like the 430 much better. They are very similar car in and out but you can still feel and see a difference between those two!

The Gran Coupe is an absolute home run.. It's practical AND sporty. The hatchback is amazing and you'll never want to go back to a normal trunk afterwards. The doors are similar to the convertible in that they don't have the frame around the window, and I've always loved that touch.

The 4 gran coupe feels sportier, and more aggressive than its 3 series counterpart. It has a lower center of gravity, nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution, and I believe, stiffer suspension.

Seats are lower and headroom is not as tall, both of which I like compared with our previous 328i. Also, rear window is narrower, but if you adjust your outside mirrors the proper way, there’s no blind spot. I was apprehensive about the narrower rear window, but adapted very quickly. You’ll appreciate the huge trunk space with the rear seats folded down and the rear shelf removed. There doesn’t seem to be as many 4GC's as well in our area.

Got it and LOVE it it's nothing like a 3 series lol, feels like a completely different car, quieterd, smoother, sportier, and absolutely love the steering wheel, after getting it I feel like many of you said, hard to go to the 3 series however will most likely be driving that and wifey will take the 4 but damn do I love this car, looks wise so much more aggressive looking than a 3 series, even without m sport the car looks gorgeous, saw some with m sport and really didn't notice much of a difference, sport line package is nice, before getting it I really was shifting towards luxury line due to it looked better in pics. However after seeing them in person fell in love with the black sapphire color and black interior

If I told you the deal I got on my 4 GC lease you wouldn't believe it lol, I'm honestly thinking of transferring my 3 series lease to someone and getting another 4 GC one for the wife and one for me lol, but that's really how much I love this car it kills in all categories

Edit: sad news, wife's first day driving it already scratched the rear rim a little bit

The 4gc is a very nice sporty and practical ride. The rear looks like a 4 series while still giving you 4 door advantage. Plenty of them around in NYC.

It's like the smaller cousin of the 3GT with the hatch. It's such a great feature and gives tons of trunk space. Enjoy your new Gran Coupe!

Here's my 3GT

do tell!!!

My 2015 4GC was $533/mo with a $56K msrp, $0 down 10k mi 36/mo

The quote for the 2018 4GC was $650!! same terms. the residuals dropped so much and the interest rates are through the roof!

I ended up with the 3, same msrp for $550/mo.
