It's looking good from what we can see of it. It still cracks me up that many people thought it looked too much like a Mustang when we saw the early, heavily camouflaged spy shots.

Vent looks like a cheap aftermarket add-on.

I do like the overall proportions of the car though.

I hate that it will be called the 4 series. The name itself doesn't bother me, but it does bother me that BMW will charge more money by fooling the buying public that it's a new model. It still is a 3 series coupe and it should only be slightly more expensive than the F30.

Do we see 3GT in front of the 4 covered? That is what I am really interested to see how it will come out...

So the pricing will be similar to the 5/6 series, for the 3/4? I hope it's proportional cause the difference between the 550i and the 650i is 23,000 here in the US. The coupes now are still more expensive than the sedans but I hope it won't be a 7,500+ price jump between the 3/4 series. If anyone knows a realistic number to expect let me know!

I'm thinking because it's a ///M car, there shouldn't be too many options that could me it any different from each other (more can be done to differentiate between the F30 3-Series and F32 4-Series) so prices should be relatively the same. We already know there was quite a price difference between the E90 and E92 but the E90 M3 and E92 M3 were only about priced about $3k apart so I don't think the "premium mark-up" would be applied to the M3 and M4 (the GC, not too sure but I'm assuming there will be a premium for it) - or at least I hope not.

As for the F30 and F32, I don't think the F32 is going to be anymore expensive than the F30 than what it was with the E9X. In Canada, the E90 started around mid $30k while the the E92 was about $7-9k more (could be wrong with that)? I think BMW will retain this pricing structure, the only difference is the model number change to justify the price difference between sedan and coupe.

I couldn't care if it is functional, but that fender looks horrible IMHO. Everything else looks great!

Late reply, but that's not a brake light at the bottom of the window, that's a red decal on the camo. Have a look at the photos of the front and you'll see the same red circle with a white logo inside. It's just the exposure of the camera and the blurriness of the white logo inside the red circle that make it appear illuminated.

M4 is a new model. The M3 will be around the 60k base of the E92 M3. I'm thinking they will charge a premium for the M4. Just like there is a crazy premium for the M6.

That's cuz in Canada the e90 was available in 323i and the e92 started with a 328i. I don't think e90 328 and e92 328 were more than 4k in price difference.

Not really digging the black fender trim. I'm curious as to how that trim will be incorporated into the M4/M3.

I was just honking the same. My F30 is just a few weeks away and I'm already thinking about the replacement.
Well I guess by the time it's time to replace it, the M4/M4 GC will be around. That would be something to wait for

An m4 badge.
