http://smh.drive.com.au/new-car-revi...722-2qde9.html

I dont quite like the look of it. E92 is much more aggressive but that's just me. Having said that the F30 initially I didnt like it but the look grow on me.

I love the new interior, it looks a lot classier and more upmarket then the existing E92 (I was somewhat disappointed with the cabin when I bought my e92)

the 8 speed is also a massive jump up from the 6 speed as well.. I really loved the Trans on the 320D i had as a loaner.

I don't like it how BMW now follows the path of MB introducing 4 different trims. Modern, Luxury, Sport and M-Sport. Why can't they just keep it bloody simple.

Come on Troy... I know you are stinging for the new 4.

I have to admit it has sexy lines and the interior is 10 fold better than the E92.

Yeah, it definitely looks more manly with the M-sport kit on. The curves on the standard version just doesn't do it for me.

I actually thought this was a good offering, and I liked the sports option

But as a used buyer it may makes things more difficult (more options means if you have something in mind it may be harder to find)

I reckon in some angles 4s looking freaking aggressive but most other angels look out of proportion. Felt like BMW is trying too hard to impress, most photos i seen at best its a "not bad looking car". She is missing the OMFG WOW FACTOR.

But the car has potential after you pimp it up, time will time.

I really hoped that the new 4 has some better interior space compartment compared to the E9x as it was utterly disappointing. A VW can store a freaking 2 litre bottle on the side of the door and a car that is double the price have very limited space to store things!!

definitely a BIG step-up from the current E92, it makes the current E9x quite dated!

I honestly hate the way this car looks. Not smooth abd skeek looking at all. The interior looks terrible too, so unproportional and just random. I will be keeping my e92 for a long time.

I do like the look of the new 4, especially the profile. And it will undoubtedly be in my sights in a few years time. The M Performance gear certainly toughens the look - probably appealing to more of us on here than the plain Jane model. The interior is quite a departure from the pure simplicity of the E92 (I appreciate the restrained look). Although I do like the new interior design and can easily live with it, I find it is a bit too fussy.

The big wow factor will surely arrive when the M4 is released ....

So let me get this right, you go from car yard to car yard with a 2ltr bottle

lol no !!! I do play alot of sports and I always keep water in my car and instead of allowing the bottle to go loose while I'm driving I like to place it in a holder which our cars dont have.

I am picking up what has to be one of the last e92 coupes to be delivered on Friday.
M sport loaded with pretty much all options.
The funny thing is I also bought one of the first in 2006 - a manual.
This one wil have a 7 speed DCT.
The interesting part is that the dealer has given me two loan cars while waiting for mine...very nice since I had to hand in my other leased car on June 28.
One a 320 diesel and a 318 diesel
What I assume is electric steering...not that great v hydraulic
Like the interior especially since I am critical of the after thought nav screen

Other observations
Great gear boxes 8 speed great economy
I just can not come to like that outside exterior...that upright grill connected to the head lights...yuk
And that is what I don't like about the new coupe and that the rear glass slope looks like the Audi A5 fastback...just too long...probably not describing it well and will reserve judgement but getting the e92 at a substantial discount I know I won't be disappointed after 2 years in a Japanese car!!

Can't wait
