Still think the cars look wayyyyy too similar for having different names.

F30 front is definitely better, but both are pretty cars.

I think the word you were looking for is air curtain. Could be wrong.
The side vents are called the air breathers, as the front slits in the front bumper are the air curtains.

What differences have you noted in driving feel? Is the coupe stiffer in sport mode? How's the steering? Any different?

I haven't driven the 4 much lately to keep the miles down since I got the loaner, and I haven't broken in the 4 yet, but to answer your questions...
I haven't observed any noticeably more stiffness. The steering is _slightly_ stiffer in the 4 but only noticed because I read it was a difference. Compared to my E92, it's still super light.

First real comparison I've seen so far.. nice, thanks. Happy to see more of a difference between sedan and coupe than I originally thought.

Black grilles all day. Actually makes the F30 look better.

Thanks for the pics,

It would be interesting to see the side profiles of both cars end to end, to really get an idea of the height of the cars and the slope of the pillars

this photo session made me dislike both cars with 4er even more so. However, I've seen good looking f30 as well as f32 (at the dealer) and I like the cars in general... Audi 5er and Merc Cer still look better

Agreed on the 3er bumper being nicer. Otherwise the 4er is definitely better looking.

F30 looks way better. The front end is more aggressive. From the side the F30 has that squatting stance where the ass end is higher than the front. The F32 just flat. Love my 335 and it looks better than any F32 I've seen.

Actually, the 3-series M-Sports do have Air Curtain ports.. not as gaping but definitely there.

Both cars look great. I love that color. Just say no to a front plate.

Thanks for the post and pictures.

Thanks for the comparison pics. Both good looking cars but IMO I'd go with the F30 all day or even better, the F80.

The rear of the F32 is too A5 IMHO.
