Such a stunning car. Love the angle of the rear window!

I'm seriously sold on this 4 series now... Just look at it in that video!

Luxury line does it huge favours, surprisingly. I never thought I would say that!
I would definitely consider luxury line if I was in the market for one of these and I usually despise chrome finishes.

I want one soooooo badly!

Rear looks like Audi's A5/S5. Wheels are outdated and the side vent has got to go.

Here's a comparison of the rear end to the 2013 A5.





Can see your point on the wheels when compared to current trends but I do think these suit the luxury line and more so the target audience for that trim, almost like the Alpina wheels.

Exactly. They seem out of place.

Audi wins in the looks department.

So, in the UK, parking sensors are standard equipment yet in the US you have to pay for them?

I'd buy one if they did a shooting brake body style, that would really pitch this line away from the 3 series.

Unfortunately in US luxury line doesn't have the proper sport seats. It's just ridiculous.

I actually think the BMW's rear is better looking than the Audi's, that slope of the rear window on the 4 into the trunk is just so sexy in my opinion. The Audis is a bit bland and generic to me.

My timeframe is about a year and a half out so it might be a 4 or it might be a 2'er or even an M something.

Garage List
2008 BMW M3  [0.00]
2007 Ford E350 4x4  [2.75]
The chassis is lower. wider, stiffer than the 3 Series Sedan. This car leaves a lot on the table for aftermarket suspension tuning. When the M4 comes out with turbos, I think we will quickly see big HP numbers over stock.

That is quite weird. Sport seats are standard on the 4er here including on the lux line. Not much else is standard, but xenons is cool. Another thing, LEDs cost more than the pro nav!!! How does it compare there?

Curiously, how much more percentage-wise is the 428i over the 328i? It's about 12% here.

I disagree, Audi looks bulky around the doors and the lines look dated.

Um, they do...it's called the 3GT. Just needs to be lowered.

A like-for-like specified car is a lot more expensive in the UK though.

I see, so it's standard there, but a base 435 might cost 50k GBP, whereas it costs 46k USD here?

Hmmm... I see what you're saying but no. Much lower equipment levels, and has 4 doors and higher centre of gravity etc.
