I think the 4-series is an absolutely wonderful looking car and am amazed at how much bigger and wider it is than the previous gen. Lower too.

Is it just me or the new 4's profile (third photo down from the top) is strikingly similar to that of the Honda Accord coupe?

all the people flaming the 4 now...will be the same folks getting one as the next car---I know its personal opinion--but why flame it?.. ie...it looks like an accord, or compare 335 to 435?...the OP was just trying to compare the lines of the vehicle...for the most part--other than the wheels/bumper...the msport isnt going to look ALL that different--its still the SAME body shape

The hood line on the F32!! That's the problem.

We'll have to wait to the F32 successor to see this fixed as it seems the F01 successor has fixed it. .

This is such an unfair comparison.. why would you compare a 328i with an Msport 435i?? The least you could have done was make it somewhat of a reasonable comparison by putting it next to a Msport 335i. Of course the 328i is going to look less aggressive!!

Why didn't you buy a 2011 335i Msport in the first place so that you could make a better comparison knowing that you would make a new purchase in a few yrs??

The only thing you could compare apples to apples here is the color and the fact that they have 2 doors.. big deal!!

/sarcasm
congrats!

people always compare the base 3er to the msport 4er.. the 4er will always look better for that.

I prefer the simple lines of the 3 series over the 4 series. The 4 series front bumper really turns me off. Too busy!

You're wrong. F32 comes out cheaper if you option the cars the same way. This has been discussed to death

Both look good although if comparing with F32 non-msport, I'd have to give it to the E92 mostly due to the stupid lower bumper on the F32. Interesting that the E92 xDrive looks like it sits lower than the F32. Wouldn't have thought that would be the case.

The F32 definitely is the meaner looking car. I love the aggressively shaped tails. Probably will upgrade ~Lci time in a few years.

e92 rear is better, and if you had an m sport e92 the front will be better too
f32 looks so exaggerated, front looks like a catfish, and rear doesn't seem to match the rest of the car

What a coincidence! I purchased my 435 from Grand Blanc, and saw the launch car there with the 18" wheels when picking mine up.

Not fair to compare a 435 msport . My dealer had a white 428 luxury line and I'd take that 328 over the 428 they had on the lot it wasn't very impressive in person. I gotta see a msport in person before I pass judgement.

Bad comparison, 335i m sport vs 435i m sport would be a visually better comparison. The e92 335i m sport is a nice looking car still but the f32 is a very nice evolution of the e92. F32 with the same spec as e92, f32 all day.

The hood line looks like bad plastic surgery.

Indeed...that's the hardest to swallow...re...appreciate. The rest I'm sure will merely blend in over time, but that line is just odd.

How can they used a 435i to compare with a 328i, try a 335i or 335is as it will looks way better with the front with the M package....
