As predicted, toned down somewhat from the Coupe Concept. Nice, but I won't be rushing to trade in my E92...

Don't like the front end for same reasons I don't like the F30

But love the rear and the width of the rear wings etc.

However, no way worth the premium over the F30?!? It's almost identical. Makes a mockery of the rebadge as purely a license to print money

I'll be going for a 2'er I think!

The back end isn't doing it for me. It looks a bit Audi like. Side profile looks amazing.

Looks like an A5 in profile?

Front and rear dont excite me as much the concepts. Front looks a bit funny, does seem like a profit making move as they step up in names. 2/3/4/5/6 etc...

I like it and for those that don't I think it will be a grower, and the M4 will look fit!

And the new 4 series advert on the TV looks proper smart, I like the way there is no formal reference to it being the new 4 series apart from glimpses of 4 series on the number plate. Anyone else noticed this?

What's with the huge wing mirrors? Doesn't look that great in these photos. Then again colour combo's and wheels can make all the difference.

as expected... all the new and funky looking things from the concept car and even the advert are gone.

It was never going to have those door handles, those mirrors or that rear end.

Why do they even bother release images of the concepts with funky stuff on them? It never EVER happens...

European regs. The taller the car the higher they NEED to be.

E92 LCI ones are bad enough but these on the F32 are just ridiculous

It doesn't look any worse than the non-sport F30 3 series. That 4 series with the sport kit will look awesome (as does the F30)

Sure, but the E92 isn't tall, and I wouldn't imagine this would be either? Unless you meant length?

The rear of the vehicle really does look more like a audi.
