I think the new F32 is going to be an amazing addition to the BMW Lineup. I think the E92 is outdated!

Hard to say without seeing the entire car. However, I am sure the new one will be beautiful and a positive improvement on the current E92/E93. However, there are several variables for the discussion, including price. The new ones could be significantly higher in price. The higher in price, the more value it needs to bring. Meanwhile, the E92/E93 is not dead yet. It is still the most current version and the new convertible is looking at least a year out. Rather than waiting for another year or more, I am going with the E93 now so I can enjoy it now. There is always something perceived to be better coming down the road.

I always felt that the E92 looked too classy, too feminine, wasn't sporty enough. Because it was part of the 3 Series, it was portraying the same type of style and elegance as the Sedan.

In looking at the new F32, it looks extremely sporty. Perhaps now that it's its own individual Series the designers took the liberty to make it more aggressive and more masculine looking.

I voted for the F32 but the E92 is a beautiful car. Stood next to a freshly detailed red one at my dealership and it was sexy. The F32 will have to be great to unseat it in my book.

I guess BMW can now also come out with a number 2 Series. Then, and along with the number one series, they will have visual aids of what each literally looks like for those who are trying to potty train their kids.

The thing that bothered me the most about the e92 was the non-straight rocker panel line. It looks a lot better now with a straight line. As far as the scoop goes, I think it looks good, although not in gloss black. I'm sure the color could be easily changed later if you wanted. I agree with others who figured that it would likely also be offered in body color. Would the interior be a clone of the e90 4-door? I hope not. I'm not a fan of the nav screen location.

It's a nice way to differentiate the coupe from the sedan thus an increase in price ala 5 series sedan and 6 series coupe. The starting price for an F10 is $47,500 and the starting price for the F12/13 is $74,400 quite a substantial difference and well worth it to BMW. Though I don't see the same drastic difference between the F30 and the new F32 it will be higher than the current $2,200 price difference for sure and most people that love coupes will pay it gladly.

The 4 series will be awesome I'm sure. I voted for it. One big negative for me is that all the new cars, especially coupes are going to such a low roofline which means less visibility out the front and back. They look awesome from the outside but it's getting harder and harder for me to feel like I get a good look at the road! Anyone ever sit in a VW CC? It's an absolutely beautiful, four door car for the price but it has about a 10" view line out the back of that pretty rear window.

The e92 is being replaced by the F32. If you are interested in a new BMW coupe you will have to by the F32. The only alternatives are to buy a used e92 or a diffenent brand.

I vote for the F32. While I am particular to sedans, the vehicle in those spy pics is sharp looking. I think I'd like to see them add the carbon fiber roof as an option for those who don't care for the moonroof. Probably wont see it on the 428 or 435 but maybe the grand coupe, which I think would look awesome.

They offer the carbon fiber roof on the M3 and will probably do the same for the new M3 or M4. The M3 needs to have some exclusive options in order to continue to be the special car that it is.
