It sure did when I did a back to back comparo right after Xmas. 3 series definitely had more usable room in the back, especially toe space under the seats, no matter how I adjusted the front seats.....

Your dealer wants to sell you a car as quickly as possible, hence the "rest of the car is the same" comment. While none of us have yet to see any road tests of the LCI models in the car mags, the...

I'll let you know. Not worrying about first year B58. If I am wrong, I will say so.

I haven't seen any LCI Venetian interiors yet. Maybe some out there in internet land, but have not found them. I presume that they also use that color on the lower dash, but possibly not the seat...

I am 99% sold on Med Blue. My only hesitation is the interior color. Oyster seems an automatic, but after watching some of the videos of a Med Blue 340 with Oyster, and pausing the video to really...

Very nice! Do you know if that is Mediterranean Blue with Oyster interior (as I am assuming)? Going to talk to my CA about a new 340 tomorrow.

Looking forward to the first road tests and drive reports. Especially interested in commentary on how the B58 compares with the N55 in terms of drive feel and overall performance.

I just hope that we FINALLY get some details on the new B58 engine (and B48 - though doubtful).

I doubt that we will much (any?) changes from '15 to '16 4GCs. LCI will probably be held for the 17's. But since the F30 will get its LCI and at least a new six (B58) for the 16's, we should have...

So they are going to dump it after a year and replace it with the B48. Going to be interesting to see how that motor unveils itself. Big shoes to fill from the N20.

Yep, cutting out one Big Mac per week would pay the difference in cost of regular vs. premium fuel and also keep all those Bimmers suffering with cheap gas much happier.

Wonder how many people come to BMW showrooms to look at the 3GT and drive out in a 4GC? Some differences to be sure, but quite similar in many ways.
